Dear Friend,

Happy Veterans Day! We are so grateful for the countless men and women who have served our country in the cause for freedom. It is not something we take lightly. We honor them and lift our veterans in prayer. Please note the office is closed today in honor of Veterans Day.

Our Bible Study on Salvation with Fr. Dale continues this Sunday morning from 8:45 – 9:30 in Building 412. We will be social distancing.

The Advent Prayer Devotional will again be passed out this Sunday. It is a beautiful prayer book created by members of our church community to assist you in developing a deeper relationship with Jesus during the Advent Season. If you can, please come by during office hours and pick your copy up. If you cannot pick it up, we will mail it to you. Additional copies can be purchased in The Cross Shop for $4.00.

We are now collecting cereal for Matthew’s Crossing through Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 26. We ask you to be generous in your giving to those who are lacking food, especially children, during this pandemic. You can drop your cereal off during office hours.

Our Fall 50/50/50 Raffle is up and running and we are off to a great start! The pot is split 50/50 between the winner of the raffle and PWC. Each ticket is $50.00 or you can buy three tickets for $100.00. You can purchase tickets here at church or at the PWC website. Here is the link if you want to purchase tickets online: Fall 50/50/50 Raffle Online Form. The drawing is scheduled for Sunday, December 13.

It’s Christmas in the Cross Shop! We have lots of new Christmas items on sale now and a wide selection of Nativity scenes. If that weren’t enough, we also have a wonderful sale on Fr. Dale’s Homemade Jams. They are on sale right now for only $3.00. Come by and browse all the inspirational books and gifts we have. There is plenty of space during the week in the Cross Shop to socially distance.

Our Thanksgiving Service is Thursday, November 26 at 10:00 am. We look forward to being part of this celebration. Our Thanksgiving service is scheduled to be outside where the chairs will be socially distanced.

Mark your calendars for our January Overnight Retreat in Chandler at the Hilton Garden Inn. The dates are Friday and Saturday, January 8 and 9. Details are coming!

If you are in need of pastoral counseling, Fr. Mike Lessard is in the office on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. Please call the office to make an appointment with Fr. Mike.

Thank you to those who continue to give through your tithing. Your giving allows the ministry of PWC to flourish. Our expenses continue to climb during Covid-19 and your generosity allows us to minister to so many in our community through such ministries as the homebound ministry, the music ministry, adult education and now our social media ministry. If you have not been tithing, we would ask you to bring it to prayer and ask the Lord to guide you.
You can give 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.

We will continue having in-person services this coming Sunday, November 15 at 10:00 am. Social distancing guidelines will apply. The chairs are socially distanced and everyone will need to wear a mask. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at our entrances. We will continue to live stream our Sunday services on Facebook Live if you do not feel comfortable attending in person. Please do what is best for you and makes you feel safe. If you are planning on attending in-person, please do not arrive until after 9:30 am.

Please pray for those who have been elected to political office. May they work for the betterment of all, especially the poor, the handicapped, the sick and vulnerable in our society.

Fr. Dale and Pastor Mark
