1. Do you remember the “Family Chat” I gave about five weeks ago? In this talk I shared with you (among other things) the financial state of our church and how the year ended in 2010. A few people have asked me things have been going since then, so I thought it might be a good idea to follow up that message with an update.
I will provide an update next Sunday (not this Sunday). It will be in the form of a bulletin insert in the Sunday bulletin.
2. This Sunday’s message is “Jesus Expects Repentance & Life Change” which is part 4 of the series “What Jesus Said about Eternal Life & Salvation.” This series has been amazing. We have been learning “what Jesus said”… which is often quite different than what we have been told. For some of us, our belief systems have been challenged. This message will be very encouraging, challenging, and uplifting. Most importantly, you and your guests will be learning the Bible.
3. We have a date established for Seminar 101. The date is Sunday, February 27th. In only two weeks 32 people signed up! This includes a number of teenagers. If this is any sign of things to come, 2011 is going to be an exceptional year for PCC.
4. Small Groups. Beginning next week, or perhaps the week after, I’m going to post a series of blogs about the future of small groups at PCC. I’ve been talking with a number of people in our church family about small groups and a new model for doing them is beginning to emerge. Nothing is finalized yet, but this much we do know: what we have done in the past has lost its effectiveness. So I will be writing about these things to simply “get my thoughts out there” and get clarification on a new direction or new paradigm to use.
For anyone and everyone who has an interest in small groups, you should log on and follow along.
