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 pray. The goal of the School of Prayer is to explain and experience how one can have an intimate relationship with God through prayer. If you missed the previous sessions, you are most welcomed to still attend this one and the last session.

Mark your calendars for the last Wednesday evening: November 9 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
In-Person Only.

Please join us for Lectio Divina and Contemplative Prayer tonight through next Wednesday, 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.

Men of PWC, this Saturday, November 5, is your opportunity to grow in your Christian faith and support other men in experiencing Christ through the Brothers’ Ministry. We are meeting from 9:00 am to 10:30 am in Building 4-12. Deacon Dennis Paschke will share about how Recovery Café works.

The Women’s Bible Study is also meeting this Saturday, November 5 from 9:00 am to 10:30 am in the church. Our bible study will be on John 11:17 and Luke 10:38-42. We will be studying Mary and Martha in scripture, the effect they had in the life of Jesus, and how we can incorporate the teachings for today. We will be serving a wonderful breakfast.

Recovery Café is opening soon, and we are very excited! Originally, we had plan to have our Grand Opening and Fund Raiser on Friday, November 4, but due to delays we have now scheduled our Grand Opening and Fund Raiser for Friday, December 2 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Tickets will be going on sale this Sunday; November 6 and the cost is only $50.00.

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.

Would you like to help decorate the church for Advent and Christmas? We are having a meeting this Friday, November 4 at 10:30 am in Fr. Dale’s office. No need to RSVP, please just bring your creative ideas!

Open to all married couples, Marriage Enrichment will meet this Friday, November 4 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm in the church. This will be an excellent opportunity to grow in your relationship with your spouse through the person of Jesus through a presentation and small group discussion questions! Dinner will be served!

Thank you to all who took shoe boxes, all have been taken, even the ones we received this past Sunday. The deadline to return the shoe boxes is November 13, this is the absolute last day to return them as we must deliver the shoeboxes to the drop-off site on November 13. If you can return them before November 13 that would be great! PWC community members have returned 75 boxes out of the 300 that were taken. Just put them in the church by the north facing windows.

"This season meant for joy is often consumed by busyness, pressure, mixed emotions, and is gone as quickly as it came. What is it all for? In the journey of Advent - a season of expectant waiting and preparation - we find our answer. It's in the waiting season of Advent that we prepare our hearts to meet December 25th with joy, peace, hope, and promise in our newborn King." ~ Louie Giglio.

November 27th begins Advent, and we invite the PWC community to join our hearts as we prepare for the birth of our Savior. Our new Advent devotional, Waiting Here for You, by pastor and author, Louie Giglio, is a guide filled with hope in the waiting. The book is now available in the Cross Shop for only $10.00.

With the weather getting nicer out, now is the time to get out and get involved at PWC! We have a ton of events going on this month. Check out our November 2022 online calendar: PWC November Calendar.
