Dear Friend,

Our in-person services continue this Sunday, April 18 at 10:00 am, the Third Sunday of Easter. Our scripture reading for Sunday is Luke 24:35-48.

We are continuing our three-week series on “community” and its importance in the Christian life. Please read, reflect, and pray with the passage before Sunday. The music for this Sunday can be found on the top right-hand corner of our website or below.

This past Sunday (besides Easter Sunday) we had the largest number of people attending in-person services. Many have received their Covid-19 vaccine and are more comfortable being out and returning to Sunday services. We would love for you to return and be with us at church for Sunday morning services provided you feel safe.

The Brothers’ Ministry is returning in person tomorrow, April 17 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am. We will now be meeting in Building 412. We have missed you for almost a year and are looking forward to renewing old friendships. Breakfast will be served!!!

Join us for our next Women’s Bible Study this Saturday, tomorrow, April 17 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am in the church. We will meet for the first time in a long time in person and we are hoping you will join us in person. Our topic is Knowing about God vs. Knowing God. You can also join us on Zoom. This is the permanent log in to Zoom:

Thank you for your tithing and your support of PWC! Your tithing allows us to minister to those searching to grow in their relationship with Jesus. It also allows PWC to minister to the vulnerable in our community; those who are struggling with relationships, food insecurity and job loss. You can tithe in one of three ways:
Mail in your gift to: Praise and Worship Center, 2551 N. Arizona Avenue, Chandler, AZ 85225.

There continues to be a lot of tension and unrest in America. Our call as members of the Body of Christ is to be the hands, the feet, the heart, the hope, the joy, and the love of Jesus to a troubled world. That means we are invited by our baptism to lift others up; whether in our families, at church, our neighborhood or through social media. If we are tearing others a part, we are no better than the rest of the world. If we want to change the world to Christ, we have to always strive to act like Jesus in all avenues of our life! It is a tall challenge, but one with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and incorporated into a Christian community, we can live up to!

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday morning at 10:00 for worship!

Fr. Dale and Pastor Mark
