This Sunday - State of the Church Update

You may recall the talk I gave on January 2 about the state of our church.  In it we heard all the cold, hard facts about PCC, how we got there, and what action steps we were going to take to turn things around.

Well, we have taken action on those things.  It has been a difficult process, sometimes painful.  Mostly it was joyful and productive.  In the process, God has pruned some deadwood, but the branches that remain are more fruitful than before.

This Sunday I will give you a six month update with details.   I’ll be talking about our attendance, some of the improvements we have made, the course corrections we have taken, people we have lost, and the progress we’ve made.

And yes, I will be talking about the state of our finances.  No, I will not allow this message to be posted on our church’s website.  This is family business, not fodder for the community.  So if you want to know what’s going on in your own church, you’ll have to be in attendance and hear it straight from me.

Things are better at PCC right now than they have been in a very long time.  Yet, we still have a ways to go.  If you want to hear the facts and get the inside angle on things, I’ll see you this Sunday.
