3 Reasons Why Acts Matters

We began this past Sunday a study on the book of Acts.  As far as I can recall, we’ve never done a series on this book before.  And it’s not the normal starting place for us, since we usually start with ‘life’  and then figure out what the Bible teaches about it. To be honest, doing a series this way is a little more challenging to make it attractional with a single glance.
But it is as important for you as …

How Prayer Affects God

Prayer is what we talked about at PCC yesterday.  Specifically, the idea that God actually hears us when we pray.  I talked about 3 things that happen when we pray.

Prayer invites the presence of God
Prayer invokes the peace of God
Prayer unlocks the power of God

But here’s the thing – this is not a pick-and-choose list!  We can’t say, “I’ll take peace and power, but skip presence.”
Simply put:  God is NOT your Genie-in-a-Bottle, where you rub the lamp and he pops …

Read the Bible in 2018!

There is nothing you can do that will be more transforming than to read the Bible every day.  But most people don’t.  Even when we intend to do it, other things get in the way.  We’re tired.  Or we’re busy.  Or we don’t understand what we’re reading.  Whatever the reason, we give up.  Our good intentions are pushed aside like the other noble goals we set.  Reading the Bible every day remains on many of our bucket lists, yet to …

PCC’s FIRST Disaster relief trip Info

 

It’s hard to imagine how devastating these floods have been in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.  We all want to help, but there is so much that needs to be done.
PCC’s Disaster Relief leadership team has been working very hard to determine the best way that we can help. After collecting HUNDREDS of hygiene kits, we are now heading to Houston to help begin the cleanup process. Basic info is below as well as the primary contact information if …

PCC’s Disaster Response

The images are hard to digest…

Thousands of people have lost everything.  Everything.  Two history making storms – Harvey and Irma – back to back, causing well over $100 Billion in damages.  We won’t know the final total bill for a while, but we can be sure of this: Many people cannot get their lives back without help.  Government cannot do it all, nor can the government pay for it all.  If ever there was a moment for the church …

What Would Jesus Say to Violent Protesters?

My good friend, Angie Frame, wrote some VERY compelling words about the violent protest in Charlottesville.  I encourage you to read that here.
A LONG time ago, we did a series at PCC called, “What Would Jesus Say To…” It was based on people who dominated the news at that time and were somewhat controversial AND – importantly – who’s story or circumstance could also lead to a meaningful, relevant life change for the rest of us.  The last one …

The fourth thing (Every PCC’er needs to know)

OK, I wasn’t a math major!  Yesterday’s post said there were 4 things I would tell you that every PCC’er needed to know, but I only gave 3.  Ugh.
There IS a fourth, and perhaps having a little more room for it is better anyway.  Yea.  Let’s go with that.
So here’s the 4th thing:  For the first time in PCC’s history, we have a functioning Teaching Team that is largely seen as a plus for our church.
Let me explain with a …

4 Things PCC’ers Need to Know

There are hundreds of God-sized things happening at PCC. I don’t even know all of them, but I often hear a story and think, “Wow! God is really doing something incredible here!”
So I wanted to share just a few things that are on my radar.

The Farmville Campus is really happening!  This was NOT our radar just a few months ago.  In fact, we carefully decided NOT to launch any new campuses in 2017.  But we never say ‘no’ to God. …
