We believe that the Church is God’s instrument to CARE for people as they really are, in all the unique ways God has created each person as an individual, and in all the difficult ways that brokenness, doubt, and frustration has come to bear on his or her story.
It’s interesting that the gospel writer John records a brief conversation as Jesus is on the cross, just before He dies. As He looks down at His mother and John, His disciple in these his final moments, He says, “Woman, behold your son!” Then to John, He says, “Behold your mother.” What is Jesus doing? He is telling them, and telling us, that as the people who are shaped by the cross, we are called to care for one another as family members in the midst of our joy and our grief.
We do not care for one another perfectly here at PCPC, and yet, God is at work in our struggle, to help us do so more faithfully, in the name of Jesus.
Tackling Fear & Worry
Monday Nights at 7:00 p.m. - September 16 thru December 2
Do you struggle with fear and worry, or have a friend or family member who does? The Counseling and Care ministry at PCPC will be addressing these issues by offering a twelve-week class this Fall. The class will once again walk through Ed Welch’s book, Running Scared - Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest. This book was taught this summer in a six-week format. The response was so positive that it was decided to offer it again but in a 12-week format. Join in on this great opportunity to tackle two great robbers of our freedom and joy, and let’s tackle them together.
Wednesday nights at 6:45 p.m. - September 11 thru December 11
Divorce and separation are such painful experiences, and God has called PCPC to provide a place to share and receive support for those suffering. If you or someone you know is going through the pain of divorce or separation and would like more information about DivorceCare, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
