A Note from our new Children’s Minister Tami Heinl
I have a heart for service, I love people unconditionally and, I look to find joy in the in between moments life brings.
I have four amazing adult children, one awesome bonus son (son-in-law), a precious three-month-old granddaughter, and a husband who now lives in heaven.
I am not sure why things happen the way they do or why there is so much suffering in this world. What I do know is that we all have a purpose and an incredible God who loves us. I cannot think of a better way to spread His love and light than through serving and loving each other.
I have been involved in ministry most of my adult life and have been so blessed to serve alongside some beautiful souls. Having the opportunity to get to know you as well as the children of PWC is an answer to my prayers, as I continue to discover God’s new purpose for my life. Helping grow our children’s love for Jesus and teaching them how imperfectly perfect God made them excites me and fills my heart with so much joy.
I am grateful to have a spiritual family that I can celebrate, fall on my knees with and grow together in faith. Please know that I am here, I am excited, and I am ready to serve this community!
May you each experience God’s grace-filled moments every day and know that you are loved!
Our world needs the peace of Christ now more than ever, may we each strive to be instruments of Jesus’ peace and love to all we encounter in our daily lives, especially our family members and neighbors.

Fr. Dale and Pastor Mark
