WinterGrace: The Grace of Prayer

The Grace to Draw Near

Sunday Morning Worship
Closeness with God is among our highest privileges as a Christian. The writer of Hebrews calls us to come close (draw near) to the throne of grace, because we have a great high priest in Jesus who can sympathize with our every weakness. And the gospel writer John describes that closeness as an intimacy which is nothing less than the Father’s eternal love for His only Son. Join us as we explore prayer as communion with God, as a grace given for the nearness to Him that we were made to experience.

The Grace to Hold Fast

Sunday Evening Worship
Come back to PCPC again for a special Sunday evening worship service on "The Grace to Hold Fast." The author of Hebrews, writing to a congregation tempted to leave the faith, admonishes them not only to draw near to God, but to hold fast to Christ in their days of weariness and struggle. Admittedly, prayer is often hard work, more duty than delight. How then can we consider prayer a grace in seasons when it feels like a burden? In light of Christ’s priesthood, we’ll consider prayer as a means of grace to persevere, especially when our grip is weak and God seems distant rather than close.

Invite friends and family to worship in-person with us at 8:00 (Chapel), 9:30 or 11:00 a.m. or online at pcpc.org/live/, the PCPC App with an iOS or Android device, Facebook, or YouTube.

"Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."

Crates for Ukraine - New Winter Edition

The key difference for the winter CFU initiative is that we no longer need couriers to fly crates to Poland. All crates will be delivered to either Dallas or Chattanooga. We have (2) partner shipping companies that are helping us collect, palletize, fly, and deliver aid to Lviv. These companies are providing their services to us for free! Runs through March 16th.

3 ways for PCPC to help with Winter Edition:
- Donate supplies: Basic or Medical
- Donate: Disaster Relief
- Volunteer
