Organizing Pastor Bob Holda offers reasons for giving praise to God as well as prayer requests for Resurrection OPC. The Lord has provided new members [twelve this year] and an average of fourteen visitors per week. Some new visitors are interested in pursing membership. The offerings have increased and are covering 90% of the income goal. A four-year lease of their meeting place [with options for years five and six] has been arranged at an affordable rate. A women’s Bible Study is now underway and is expected to be well-attended. Pray for the four ordained elders in the group and their work with Pastor Holda in establishing long-range plans for the congregation. A meeting is set for September 16 for this purpose. Specifically pray for God’s wisdom as the men discuss the path to organization as well as the development of the congregation within the realms of divine worship, mutual edification, gospel witness, and OPC identity. Finally, pray for the Lord to foster an organized approach to diaconal care within the flock, and that hewould provide deacons to take up the work.
