This month marks the end of Immanuel Church’s period of denominational financial support. There have been ups and downs according to Pastor Hoekstra, but things are looking positive. Several families who joined late last year have been incorporated into the body. A few regularly attending families have expressed interest in membership, and an inquirers class will begin next month. Two new believers have also begun attending recently. The Hoekstras bring welcome bags to new residents, and last Sunday a couple came to worship after receiving a visit. Pray that God will bless this continuing outreach effort. Pray for increased attendance at the Wednesday evening Bible study. Pray too for progress towards particularization with officer training beginning later this year.
