If you were not able to pick up The Advent Prayer Devotional at church, they were mailed out this week and you should be receiving or have received the book. 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. 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 or bring to Thanksgiving service.

Thank you to those who continue to give through your tithing. Your giving allows PWC to minister during these trying times of Covid-19. Your generosity allows us to reach out to the poor and hungry through I-Help and Matthew’s Crossing. Your tithing is allowing us to build our new social media ministry which gives us an opportunity to spread the Gospel message of Jesus Christ to those who are social distancing. 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.
