Church Planter: Eric and Jerilee Costa

Give Thanks:

  • We had new members join our congregation. One boy was baptized upon profession of faith.
  • Our officer nominees are showing their quality through the training process. Our people are getting involved in a ministry to the community, providing backpacks and school supplies to public school children in need.
  • The congregation elected a solid Pulpit committee to draft the terms of my call upon particularization.
  • The women are enjoying a summer bible study in the book, “On Being Presbyterian,” by Sean Michael Lucas.

Trust God :

  • A few families seem to be taking a “summer break” from church.
  • One of our best deacon nominees withdrew from the training process.

Prayer Requests :

  • Recently I read this article by Paul Tripp (http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/tgc/2012/07/08/the-fearful-pastor/), and have had several good conversations on the topic of being fearful in ministry. Please pray for me, that the joy of the Lord would fuel my ministry, and the ministry of all our members.
  • Please pray that our church would attract unbelievers and young Christians to worship with us.
