Last night was another wonderful evening of PCF Choir rehearsal and fellowship with our visitors. Everytime I attend choir rehearsal I am lifted up and blessed because there is so much more than rehearsal happening there. God’s Spirit is present. As I have mentioned before, I have been involved in music my whole life and have had the honor of playing with some wonderful groups and with some amazing musicians but the PCF Choir has something that goes beyond talent. Our choir is filled with Holy Spirit Worship. If you ever need a lift on a Wednesday evening, you are welcome to come and be part of th worship that takes place every Wednesday at 6:30 in the sanctuary.

One of the most important lessons I have learned about reading the bible is that it must become more than a discipline. I found joy in reading the stories of the bible when I realized that the stories were written for me. It is a personal letter from God written to each one of us. It has opened many treasures for me.
