This summer Reformation OPC took important steps toward particularization. The church’s new members class has eleven students, many of whom Pastor Bennett expects will join the congregation. Elder training has concluded and will soon move to examination and (potentially) certification in front of the session. In addition, there are several families the church is happy to count as regular visitors. Reformation’s financial giving has also increased; the mission work is close to independently meeting its operating budget. Reformation will kick-off a mid-week study on biblical covenants this fall. Pray for God’s blessing on this Christian education effort. Pray as well for Pastor Shane Bennett as he recovers from silent reflux (a condition which has injured his vocal chords and requires 4–6 months to mend).
