Lent is a time for reflection and preparedness. It is a time to fully and consciously enter the Paschal Mystery. All are invited to join us for Contemplative Prayer each Wednesday evening at 6:00 pm tonight through March 31. We come together to Listen to God’s Word (Lectio Divina) followed by a time of communing with and resting in Holy Presence. It is a graced experience to truly be with God, and one another, for the greater sake of our world. We will both gather at PWC and via Zoom. Here is the link: ZOOM LINK.

Even with the pandemic we have a lot going on, we are still doing lots of ministering here at PWC! Right now, we are only scheduling month to month. Check out our calendar for March: Calendar of Events. We are working on April’s calendar right now!

Thank you for your giving! During these trying times of Covid-19 your tithing allows the essential and vital work of PWC to continue and flourish. Even in the midst of a pandemic, it is so necessary that ministry continues, and people are ministered to in a number of critical ways. You can tithe in one of three ways:
Mail in your gift to: Praise and Worship Center, 2551 N. Arizona Avenue, Chandler, AZ 85225.
Donate on our web page: Donation Form.
Sign up for monthly giving with a credit card or voided check. Just call the office at 480-649-0300.

It was good to see many members of our community returning for Sunday Services! People talked about receiving their second vaccine for Covid-19 and they felt comfortable being out and about. With that being said, we only want you to be present on Sunday when you feel comfortable and safe.

We continue to pray for peace in our world, in our community, and in our hearts. As Christians may we all work together, to be respectful, even though we may have diverse opinions, to build one another up and to build up the Body of Christ!

Looking forward to seeing you this Sunday morning at 10:00 in church or on Facebook Live.

Fr. Dale and Pastor Mark
