First let me just give a thumbs up and a Praise God to our amazing choir! So uplifting!!

Dear PCF family, God is always working behind the scenes for all those who have surrendered to His son Jesus. Even when things are not looking so good, put your faith and trust in Jesus who loves you and cares for you so much He died for you. Never forget that. His sacrifice was for you! That is something you need to take time to think deeply about. Imagine you meet a person and get to know them and then a short time later you find out you have some kind of serious condition that will require a heart transplant.  And not only that, you have an extremely rare blood type so finding a donor is probably going to be impossible. Then you find out the person you recently met has the exact blood type you have, but they are healthy, in their prime, so there is no way they can donate their heart,….. unless that person is Jesus!  That is exactly what Jesus did for you and me. He sacrificed His life in His prime, so you and I could live forever too. Wow, that is just amazing to me.  So whatever it is bringing you down, turn it over to Jesus!  He loves you, and that is an understatement!

We are gearing up for our PCF fried chicken family dinner coming up on March 9th at 5:00pm. This Sunday is the last day to make reservations for this dinner, so see Nelleke and get on the list if you haven’t done so yet.

New Men’s group kicking off Tuesday March the 5th at 6:30pm at the church. Darren Hlava will be leading this group. Darren served in the US Marines. He also recently retired as a computer technology man which is way over my head so I’ll leave it at that. Darren is married to Robin our Sunday school teacher. He is looking forward to meeting a group of guys wanting to develop relationships with other Christian men with all of its blessings as well as struggles. Just show up at church on Tuesday if you want to find out more about this new group.
