In this week's video, we are reminded that our gifts to the Thank Offering support the work of the Committee on Christian Education as it seeks to relieve our interns from worldly care as they pursue a full training schedule in conjunction with their seminary courses, including:
- Writing and delivering sermons
- Teaching Sunday School
- Leading Bible studies
- Going on member visitation
- Attending session meetings
- And more!
Year-Long Intern Jonathan Cruse, from Providence OPC in Temecula, California, says:
- One of the wonderful things about the OPC is the strong emphasis we place on internships...
- The money that comes in through the Thank Offering that's given to us interns is essential in the work that we do...
- It's in the local church, while serving as interns, that we have the opportunity to put hands and feet to the ideas that we are learning in the classroom back at seminary...
