Dear PCF family and friends, here is what is happening in our church:

Let’s Grow The Church! I will be announcing our schedule of quarterly Catered family dinners beginning in January very soon. These dinners will be at 5:00pm Sunday evenings and are to help us grow the church. Start thinking of those you know who currently do not have a church family who you could bring to a wonderful church dinner. Each of these quarterly dinners will have a theme of outreach. We are planning to help needy moms with babies at our Kick off Dinner in January. We will donate diapers, baby clothes, baby toys…all things needed for newborns. I’ll have more info on this soon.  If you would like to be part of this first dinners committee let me know!

As you all have noticed we are having more and more new faces at our services. I believe it has much to do with our wonderful choir. They are incredible and I am very appreciative of all their hard work and dedication making our worship service so meaningful.

PCF Family and friends, what we have as a God centered church family needs to be shared. Knowing Jesus is the solution to a better, more fulfilling life. It is not “a” solution, it is “the” solution. We have been called to share the good news. We do it through music, our love for one another, and Biblical teaching in a way that is usable in today’s real world. What will we do when we no longer have room in our pews on a Sunday morning? God will always have the answer!

On Line Services: Each week we broadcast our service live on Facebook. The services are then archived on or website. We love having our on-line viewers but we also know that it is not the same as being part of the PCF family live. If you are an online viewer we are glad to have you but do yourself a favor and come meet your PCF family in person. Consider joining us on Sunday November 21st when we Kick off our first Quiche with coffee right after our 9:00am service. A time to ask us questions and to get to know some of the wonderful people in our church family.

Darlene Azar sends a big thank you to all who donated sweat pants to the Franklin School. She said there was a total of 45 pairs of new sweat pants taken to the school this past week. She will continue to collect until the end of October.
