Dear Friend,

Can you believe it, we are already 19 days into 2022! Please take a moment today to reflect on God’s blessings in your life and how you as a Christian can share those blessings with others.

Kicking with Jesus! 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 second session and all the kids continued 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 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.

The Start Date for the Chosen has been Delay a Week to Friday, January 28. 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. Beginning Friday January 28, we will gather weekly @ 6:00pm for nine weeks (with a pause for Marriage Enrichment Nights). Each week we will share a meal, watch one of eight episodes, and have an opportunity for small group sharing. Cost is $15 for the Study Guide (scholarships available).

Our next Prayer Retreat for this Saturday, January 22 has been cancelled. We look forward to our Prayer Retreat next month.

We have a lot going on at PWC from now through May, check out our new PWC Spring Calendar online. If your health permits, we hope you will get more involved at PWC this spring.

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.

We appreciate your generosity and consistent giving! Thank you so much, your giving allows the PWC ministry to thrive and spread Jesus’ message of peace and hope!
