Two Services ONE MESSAGE
Every day we are faced with options and now we will have options here at Penn Forest Worship Center! We now two different styles of worship services. We understand that people enjoy worshiping differently and this is just another way that we are striving to encourage people to come to church and quit making excuses!
9:30 AM – This will be a Blended Traditional Service. The sermon will be the same as the later service but the music will be toned down and will include a mixture of mostly older songs along with one or two newer ones.
11:00 AM – This will be a Blended Contemporary Service. The worship music will use the full band and will include a mixture of mostly newer songs along with one or two older ones.
We will continue to have our Sunday School Connect and Grow groups at 9:45 AM but are open to starting other groups as we continue to move forward. Penn Forest Worship Center offers a modern worship experience with encouraging music, relatable messages, and a comfortable atmosphere. What you won’t find at PFWC is a dress code, hard pews, perfect people, or dry sermons. Come and join us as we reach across the generations!
OPERATION OUTREACH 2013
We have a group of 11 teens and adults heading to San Salvador, El Salvador, November 23-30, 2013. Yes this is over Thanksgiving but what a great way to show our thankfulness than by serving others. While there we will be conducting medical clinics, distributing clothes & shoes, working with children, doing light construction, and preaching. Please be praying for us and if you would like to give, please do so. We will need to raise over $14,000. Your donation and prayers are greatly appreciated!
Below is a very brief tentative schedule of the PFWC OpOut team. They will be sharing their testimonies, doing medical clinics, conducting bible schools for children, playing games and doing crafts with children, painting homes, distributing clothes & shoes and anything else that they can do to be an encouragement to the people of El Salvador!
Please pray for safety, effectiveness, health, and favor with getting through immigration. (They took 13 suitcases filled with supplies.) Most importantly, pray that lives will be changed for God’s glory!

Building Improvement update
We have come so far! You haven’t heard us say much about this recently but we still haven’t reached our goal. When you look around you can see the results of hard work and generosity. Our goal is to raise $20,000. So far we have received: $10,890.40. We would really like to update the kitchen. The appliances are on their last leg and we would love to have the funds to replace them. Thank you for your continued generosity!
Every Tuesday we invite all men to join us weekly at Hardee’s at 6:00 AM for devotions and prayer. This is a great way to start the day off by connecting with each other and growing in Christ.
Currently we have anywhere from 6-14 teen and adult men that join with us. You are invited to join us too!
We have some exciting things taking place with women’s meetings. Watch for more details of these events. We do currently have a women’s study group that has just begun.
Moms need time to LAUGH together. We will meet weekly to share the LOVE of Christ with each other. We will AFFIRM and encourage one another as we take time to better UNDERSTAND the role God has given us as mothers. Then we will be able to GIVE advice and HELP each other be Godly examples for our children. This group is for moms of all ages and any mom can attend, even those who don’t go to our church.
We will have our first meeting Monday October 28th at the church from 8-9 PM. Starting the following week, November 4th, we will be reading through the book Desperate – Hope for the Mom that Needs to Breathe, by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson. It’s a great book about parenting. You can order the digital version for electronic devices, or purchase a paper copy on Amazon, or order one through Lifeway. See Courtney Chilson or Karen Marable for more information.
Campbell’s soup labels
Every label sent to Hephzibah Children’s Home brings them closer to the 1,500,000 needed to purchase a new vehicle. As with anything, a little is a lot when God is in it. This is a project where even the smallest group can have a “BIG IMPACT.” Save your labels and turn them in at the PFWC office.
