Dear Friend,

Our pilgrimage to Assisi begins tonight at Sky Harbor Airport! It will be from September 28 to October 8. We are very excited about this trip, it is a spiritual journey. Please keep those members of our community in prayer that this experience will allow them to grow in the love, peace and joy of Jesus through St. Francis.

The Cross Shop is having their Annual September Anniversary Sale. We have lots of wonderful items on sale! The Cross Shop is also open during regular office hours during the week.

Men and Women of PWC! This Saturday, October 1, The Brothers’ Ministry and the Women’s Bible Study will meet from 9:00 am to 10:30 am. The men will meet in Building 4:12 and the women in the church. Both will be serving breakfast! Each group is starting a new semester. You are most welcome to invite a friend!

The School of Prayer is coming this fall to PWC! Mark your calendars for Wednesday evenings: October 12, 19, 26 November 2 and 9 at 7:00 pm. The School of Prayer will explore different ways and styles of prayer and why we are called to prayer as Christians. The goal of the School of Prayer is to explain and experience how one can have an intimate relationship with God through prayer. You are most welcome to invite your friends!

Check out the book Learning to Pray: A Guide for Everyone by James Martin in the Cross Shop. This will be the book we will be using for the School of Prayer in October. For your summer reading you can start now, have it done and be ready for the class. It is on sale for only $22.99.

In his book Learning to Pray James Martin offers us an image of God who “taps, knocks, calls out, whispers” - inviting us into the presence of the “Beckoner.” Please join us each Wednesday at 6:00 pm prior to the School of Prayer October 12 - November 9 for Lectio Divina and Contemplative Prayer. If you have any questions, please contact Deacon Karen Klemens.

Our website reflections inspire every week! During the month of September we are going to take a break and give our writers a well deserved rest. In the meantime, check out past reflections to help inspire you! Click on our Weekly Reflection Tile and be nourished. Here is the link: PWC Reflections Page.

Do You Want to Inspire Others in Our Community? We are looking for writers for our weekly website reflections. Your subject would be on how Jesus is working in your life, an experience in ministry that inspired you, or something in a spiritual nature that you would like to share with the community. The word limit would be 500 to 600 words. If you are interested, please email Kevin at [email protected].

PWC would not be where it is at today, without your tithing. From meeting countless needs within our community your financial gift allows us to minister to so many people from those wanting to learn more about their faith, to couples looking to enrich their marriage, to children seeking to know Jesus, and to those who are sick desiring the healing touch of Jesus. Thank You! If you have been gone for the summer and have not been giving, it would be very much appreciated if you would make up your gift to help us meet our expenses. Our collections are always down for the summer.
Here are the different ways you can tithe to PWC:
Mail in your gift to: Praise and Worship Center, 2551 N. Arizona Avenue, Chandler, AZ 85225.
