Dear Friend,

We pray that your week is going well and that you are staying safe!

A Message from
Fr. Dale
I am extremely grateful to everyone for the prayers and support over these past four weeks. Even though we ran into some complications, I feel better and stronger each day. I look forward to worshipping with everyone on Sunday! Love you all!

This Sunday, January 16, we look forward to seeing you in person at Sunday Service at 10:00 am. Our scripture reading for this Sunday is John 2:1-11. Here is a summary of the reading: Jesus performs his first sign at a wedding feast in Cana.

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. Please Note: The Omicron and Delta variants are affecting those who are both vaccinated and unvaccinated. We have socially distanced the chairs in church and strongly recommend we wear mask. If you do not have a mask, masks are available at the door.

To participate in our services online, go to: PWC website and find the Facebook button at the top of our home page.

We have cancelled both the Brothers’ Ministry and Women’s Bible Study for this Saturday, January 15 in an abundance of caution with the Covid variant spreading at a rapid pace.

We have postponed The Joyce Bailey Concert on Monday, January 17 at 7:00 pm in an effort to keep our community members safe. We look forward to rescheduling the concert with Joyce at a later date.

We have started an exciting series at PWC for children ages four through fifth grade called Kicking with Jesus and we are off to a great start! Last Sunday was our first session and all the kids loved it! Created by our own board member, Michelle Lee, through Lee’s ATA Marital 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 for Jesus! Here are the remaining dates: Sundays, January 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 Kicking with Jesus Flyer for more information.

Do you need a PWC name tag? You can sign up for a name tag on Sunday morning in the office or email Sandy Thiernau at [email protected]. If you have a PWC name tag, we encourage you to wear your name tag so you will get to know the names of others in our PWC community.

Please join in for The Chosen Movie Night and Interactive Bible Study “What Does It Mean to Be Chosen?" The Chosen is a groundbreaking streaming television series about the life of Jesus.
