News from OBF Churches, September 30, 2014

Here is a roundup of news from some Ohio Bible Fellowship churches for prayer and encouragement—

Bible Community Church, Mentor, OH

  • Pray for us as we seek to calm down some programs and just try to sit at Jesus’ feet together and listen.  Things are busy, but we need to soak where soaking is needed.
  • Pray for interim pastor Mike Goldfuss to have wisdom as to what to preach.
  • Pray for the pulpit committee to have wisdom in choosing the next pastor of BCC.
  • Pray for us to have a desire to learn Christ better and deeper.
  • In our SS hour, we are doing a study on the “50 fruits of pride.” We have seen 12 in 4 weeks.  From comments that I’ve heard, we are touching things where we need to recognize our pride, confess it, look to Christ for His strength, and practice humility.  Someone asked if they get an A if they find all 50 in their life.  🙂
