Thank you to everyone who has sent in their Nativity scenes! We still want you to send us a picture of your home Nativity scene so we can post it on our website. We would like to share it with the rest of the PWC community. Please just send us a picture of your Nativity scene. Email the picture to Kevin at kmcgloin@pwcaz.net. Here is a link to the Nativity pictures: Photos > Nativity Photos.

It was great to see so many of our PWC community members stop by our Christmas Drive-By on Sunday. We hope you enjoyed seeing our new outdoor Nativity scene, the peanut brittle and we thank you for dropping off your Christmas tithing. Here are some pictures from the event: Christmas Drive By Photos.

All Christmas items are now 40% off, including a wide selection of Nativity scenes. PWC is also selling See’s Candy. We have Christmas candy, peanut brittle, and lollipops. Supplies are limited. 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.

Join us for Contemplative Prayer during Advent on Zoom tonight at 6:30 pm. We will gather together via Zoom for Contemplative Prayer each Wednesday evening during Advent. We will use scripture passages from the PWC Advent Prayer Devotional for our Leccio and follow with a 30-minute sharing of our experience from the week’s passages and reflections. Deacon Karen Klemens will be leading the evening and it is open to all. Join us for the Zoom meeting here at: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81269805749

Don’t forget about our Weekly Reflections on the PWC website: Weekly Reflections. During December we will be writing on the Season of Advent Christmas and how they are spiritually linked together.

Merry Christmas to you and your family! Even as we grapple with Covid-19 we continue to pray for those who are ill and remember those who are charged with the distribution of the vaccine. We continue to pray for all hospital workers and essential workers in our community. May the peace of Jesus reign in our world during this holy season!
