An Update from Pastor Mark about Father Dale
Dear PWC Family,
I received word that FD's surgery went well. He received two additional stents and everything is going well so far. He was scheduled to be released from the hospital on Tuesday evening. Father Dale will be taking a few days off to rest and recover. We thank you for your prayers, support, and love.
We look forward to thanking God this Sunday with all of you.
God Bless,
Pastor Mark Dippre

Dear Friend,

We are so excited about our new camera system here at PWC! They are installing the cameras right now. We hope to have it up and running soon! The new system will have three new cameras and video production equipment. This is due in part to the approval of the PWC board and the generosity of several people. This upgrade will allow us to broadcast with different cameras and angles as well as fine tuning the production of our Sunday services and teachings on Wednesdays. Currently our productions are limited because we only have one camera.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Your continued tithing and generosity allows the ministry of PWC to continue during the summer months. What a blessing you are in your giving!

The PWC Prayer Chain is here for you. We want to lift you up in prayer. If you have a special need, please go to our prayer page and submit your prayer request: Prayer Request Form.

Over the past few weeks, we have had several members of our community come down with Covid. It appears the Delta variant is affecting people who have been vaccinated. For Sunday service we are going to social distance the chairs in church and strongly recommend we temporarily wear masks. We are aware there are a variety of opinions about masks, but we would like to recommend we wear masks temporarily and encourage everyone to get the vaccine. These suggestions are in love, please receive them that way.

Please pray for those who are hurting in our world, especially the people of Haiti and Afghanistan.

Fr. Dale and Pastor Mark
