Friday News

1.  This Sunday – State of the Church Address.  I’ll be providing PCC with a financial update, an update on going back to one service in 2012, and a personal update about myself.  We will also have end-of-year financial statements available.  We had a very good year, and 2013 looks even better!  Come hear all the details.

2.  Vision 2013 – I’m very excited about 2013 and want to talk about it soon.  I want to see the congregation of PCC move towards community like never before; towards deeper spiritual maturity and full participation in the life of the church.  I’m currently building a preaching team (you need to hear about this) who will share the pulpit ministry with me; and we are doubling up our efforts on teenagers.  Additionally, we will be emphasizing family ministry and challenging parents like never before.  In 2013 we will be rolling out a 301 seminar; insisting on ministry alignment, and a host of other great things.  Our commitment to reaching lost people still burns white hot.  Our mission remains the same – to make disciples.  We are still dedicated to both sides of the Great Commission: (1)  reaching those who are far from God, and, (2) turning them into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.  We might even include a Fifteen Year Anniversary Celebration at PCC this year!

3.  New Sermon Series to begin in two weeks:  Doing Church God’s Way.  This will be a verse-by-verse journey through the book of 1st Timothy.  It’s meat for men and is going to be a real eye-opener.

4.  Children’s Chorus Sings in service, Sunday, January 27th.  Very excited about that.

5.  Here is a link to a great blog postMotherhood as an Act of Worship.  It was written by Marie, the daughter of Larry Osborne (a pastor and author whose books I love to read).  He posted this link on his twitter account, where I found it.
