Dear Friend,

The School of Prayer
continues tonight
at 7:00 here at PWC!

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. Sr. Paula Hagen and Deacon Karen Klemens will present tonight. You are most welcome to invite your friends! If you missed the first session you are most welcomed to still attend.

Mark your calendars for the other Wednesday evenings: November 2 and 9 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. In-Person Only.

Please join us for Lectio Divina and Contemplative Prayer tonight through November 9 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. It is prior to the School of Prayer. If you have any questions, please contact Deacon Karen Klemens.

The Praise and Worship Center Executive Board will have an opening beginning January 1, 2023. If you are willing to serve, please pick up an application this coming weekend. The term for each board member is three years. The job description of the board is to oversee the policies, annual budget, and the direction of PWC. The expectation of each board member is to attend a monthly meeting (usually on the fourth Sunday of the month), be registered at PWC, be active in ministry, and be willing to participate in special events and meetings held by the board. All names of qualified candidates will be put into a hat and in biblical tradition be drawn by lot. We currently have a very active and supportive board. If you are willing and believe you can help guide our church family, we encourage you to fill out an application.

Wow!!! Our Shoebox Ministry is off to an amazing start!

Thank you to all who took shoeboxes, all have been taken, even the ones we received this past Sunday. The deadline to return the shoeboxes is November 13, this is the absolute last day to return them as we must deliver the shoeboxes to the drop-off site on or before November 13. PWC community members are already bringing their shoeboxes back and you can too before the deadline date. Just put them in the church by the north facing windows. Please contact Carol Palmer at 206-612-1742 or Cindie Taylor at 480-205-4272 for questions or more information.

The Praise and Worship Center is hosting a class entitled Medicare 101 this on Saturday, October 29 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am in the church. The class will take an in-depth look at all three phases of Medicare to help you make informed choices when choosing coverage. Please plan on joining us for this discussion. If you have any questions, please call Pastor Mark at 480-649-0300.

Our collections have been down. If you have not been giving, we would ask you to bring it to prayer and ask the Lord to guide you. It is important for you to know your tithing allows The Praise and Worship Center to meet the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of our community and the greater community in the East Valley. From pastoral counseling to grief support, to Bible Study, to Adult Education, to providing food through Matthew’s Crossing for families who are economically unstable to PWC Kids and Marriage Enrichment; your consistent giving makes a difference, a big difference!
