Hey PCF family, I’m looking forward to seeing you tomorrow morning. Come join your PCF family and get your joyful hugs and smiles. God’s truth changes lives. Come immerse yourself into God’s truth where you will find true treasure of Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness, and Self Control. It is a new way of life, the life of living in truth. Pastor Kent


Our annual Catered Chicken Dinner is coming up March 9th at 5:00pm at the church. We bring in DK’s famous fried chicken with all the fixins and you are invited. There is no cost to attend this dinner sponsored by the church but we do need you to make reservations so we know how much food to order. The mission we will be sponsoring for this dinner is “Sleep in Heavenly Peace”  which builds beds for children ages 3-17. At this time they are in need of the following, Twin size Comforters, Twin size waterproof mattress covers or monetary gifts to help purchase twin mattresses @$50.00 each.  Here is a link to a short video about this ministry.   

Tomorrow is the last day to make reservations! You can make your dinner reservation with Nelleke Weese at church on Sundays or you can call her at 618-205-3201.
