Dear Friend,

We hope and pray the first week of January and 2022 has been good to you!

We have an exciting series starting at PWC for children ages four through fifth grade called Kicking with Jesus! Created by our own board member, Michelle Lee, through Lee’s ATA Martial Arts, Kicking with Jesus is designed for kids to learn self-defense, break boards, kick targets, and praise God! We will get our bodies moving and have fun kicking with Jesus! Here are the dates: Sundays, January 9, 16, 23, 30, and February 6 from 9:30 am to 10:30 am. No registration needed, just show up! You are welcome to bring a friend! At 10:30 am the children will be brought to the church for the rest of our Sunday service. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, get your young people to Kicking With Jesus! Please see the flyer for more information:

This Sunday, January 9, is the Baptism of the Lord. We look forward to seeing you in person at Sunday Service at 10:00 am. Our scripture reading for this Sunday is Luke 3:15-16, 21-22. Here is a summary of the reading: From John the Baptizer: “I am baptizing you with water, but one mightier than I is coming. I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

Please read, reflect, and pray with the passage before Sunday. Just as our pastors prepare by reading, studying, and reflecting on Sunday’s scripture passage, so should we. The music for this Sunday can be found on the top-right hand corner of our website.

In the biblical vision, all things are brought into existence by God’s creative Word; all of history is a dialogue with God, who speaks to the human heart. It is by listening for the Voice spoken at any given moment, we will be able to tap the very Source of Meaning and realize the unfolding meaning of our lives. You are invited to join us in Lectio Divina and Contemplative Prayer Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at 6:00 PM via Zoom. Simply click on this: ZOOM LINK

Join the PWC Prayer Team! This is an excellent way to pray and lift up the needs of our community members. Contact Debbie Smith at [email protected] for more information or to sign up.

If you are in town, we look forward to seeing you in person on Sunday at 10:00 am. It is so vital we support one another in our Christian faith and gather as a community for worship every Sunday. It is important to remember when Jesus began his public ministry, he brought people together. Jesus realized being a follower of “The Way” would not be easy and we would need the physical and spiritual support of one another as part of a community.

We continue to pray for those suffering from Covid-19 and those who are caring for them.

Fr. Dale and Pastor Mark
