Friendly Presbyterians

We had a great Sunday worshipping with Immanuel OPC in Bellmawr, New Jersey. Strong, straightforward preaching at two services with communion (celebrated once a month--wish we did that at home) to boot.

After the morning service, we were invited to the church's potluck after the morning service. We even had to decline an invitation to join a family for dinner after the morning service because of the potluck. While we were getting ready to go to the evening service, a different family from the church called us to invite us to a bonfire after evening worship. After discussing our situation, the other families encouraged and prayed for us, then offered to help in any way that they can. It is an awesome experience to find brothers and sisters in Christ who immediately treated us as brothers and sisters even though they had never met us before. We look forward to worshipping with Immanuel in the future.

How nice to meet some fellow believers who are so loving in Christ! Sounds like the Lord really blessed you there- perhaps He is preparing your temporary church home. We are anxiously awaiting any news and praying daily for Whitney and Fiona and both of you.
Love in Christ
