It's Back! Cardboard Testimony Service!

WE'RE DOING IT AGAIN on December 19th.

It's been two years since we last did this. It's time to do it again because there are so many more stories to tell. If you've never seen a cardboard testimony service, view this video to get an idea.

The entire month of December is going to be very exciting at PCC. To give you and idea:

This Sunday's message isTHE HOPE OF CHRISTMAS, and as part of the message I will have a family from PCC come to the stage and share a personal testimony of God's intervention in their lives. In fact, we'll be hearing testimonies from some of our PCC families every Sunday in December. YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS ANY OF THIS! It's gonna be a very memorable month of Sundays for PCC.

This is what the whole month looks like:

If you would enjoy putting up & decorating the tree for the Atrium, we would love to see you here Friday morning (yes, this Friday) anytime between the hours of 9:00-11:00. We'd love to have the tree up & beautifully decorated by this weekend to launch our holiday services ... and with your help it can happen. Please come out and help if you can.

A VERY SPECIAL presentation in BOTH services and special CHRISTMAS OFFERING to ensure we finish the year strong. It's been a fiscally challenging year and we're asking our church family to remember your church in this season of holiday giving. If PCC has been a blessing to you, if it has ministered to you in any way throughout the year, please consider blessing your church in this special year-end offering to help your church finish strong as 2010 draws to a close

Also ... In December 2008, we did our very first Cardboard Testimony service, and people are still talking about it even now. You will not want to miss this very special celebration as we look back over the year and hear from people whose lives have been profoundly changed by the power of Christ. Mark your calenders, and invite your friends ... this would be a GREAT SUNDAY to get your unsaved loved ones here.
