Some in the Presbytery are setting lofty goals for church planting in Northeast Ohio. Check out their flyer to see their vision.
Providence Presbyterian Church in Pataskala, Ohio (east of Columbus), initiated a Bible study in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Teacher Sacha Walicord of that congregation was teaching at a university there. He saw no Reformed churches in the area, so with his session’s approval he began a Sunday evening Bible study.
The group grew quickly. Four OPC families who live near Mount Vernon have become part of the work. Two are from Providence Church, and two have come from Covenant Presbyterian Church in Mansfield. In March, the group was received as a mission work of the presbytery and became known as Knox Presbyterian Church.
As of July 1, Sacha will focus his labors on ministering to this new group, which numbers about fifty. Larry will be encouraging Sacha and the mission work and serving on the overseeing session.

The Ohio Presbytery was featured in a recent ByFaith article. The article focused on the efforts of native Ohioians and their work in advancing church planting in this region. You can find it here.
Grace Central Grandview, a church plant of Grace Central in Columbus, has been meeting for informal Bible studies. But now they are ready.
Grace Central Grandview officially launched their first worship service on Sunday, November 6th, 5 p.m. at the Hyatt in Grandview Yard. The fellowship commenced the services with an introduction to a 12 week study of Ecclesiastes.
