Looking Ahead.....

There is nothing like the local church when it’s working right.  Its beauty and power is something to witness…. and experience!  The local church builds bridges to the lost, offers truth to the confused, opens hers arms to the forgotten, and builds up the believer.

To this day I am still amazed at the journey PCC has traveled for almost 15 years.  Thousands of stories are told by real people who have been touched by God’s love.  Each story serves as a vivid reminder of the steady kingdom impact this ministry has had.  I absolutely love everything God is doing in our lives and our church. 

Looking ahead, I could not be more excited than I am right now.  This year has come to an end, and we have finished well.  The new year is upon us and looks brighter than ever!   In a few weeks I will be sharing a vision talk of what I see in our future.  My commitment to PCC has not wavered.  I’m giving my life to this church and the mission God has given us.   After numerous late-night gut checks, I have come to complete clarity on this matter.  By God’s grace, I'm in this for the long haul, no matter what, no matter who comes or goes.  And I know many of you will continue with me on this journey.  Together we are co-laborers for a cause greater than ourselves - Christ and His Church.  Next year is going to be our greatest year ever. 

This Sunday, December 30th, my Sunday message is “How to Make a Fresh Start.” It will be a timely message for all of us. 

If you know someone who is desperate need of Christ, bring them to service with you.  This message will be especially helpful for them.

Always remember, God is more interested in your future than your past.
