Planned Parenthood Ministry Update

Saints, thank you so much for praying and supporting this work for the Gospel's sake. A few weeks ago, we shared the need for the Mercy Fund to help a couple that changed their mind on abortion, and you stepped up in a huge way. We are excited "seek the profit which increases to your account (Phil. 4:17)." Our church is able to help the couple with rent for a few months to give them time to plan well. We desire to give a more comprehensive update in the future, but please pray for: 

  • The salvation of the couple. 
  • God's continued provision for them. 
  • The ministry of the saints in their lives. 
  • Praise: They have a car now!
  • Praise: The father recently got his first job!

Social Media

Did you know that one of the easiest, and most passive ways you can help the advance of the Gospel, is by interacting with our Church social media presence (and other ministries). Even a simple "like" will help put our posts in the view of your non-believing friends. Comments are better in Facebook, since they equate the comments with popularity.
