Join us on Sunday’s at 9:45 AM for our Connect & Grow groups (formally Sunday School). We have three adult electives classes, a teen class (go to teen page for a detailed account), and a children’s class (soon we will have two a K-2nd and 3rd – 5th) and a Pre-k/Toddlers class. Come get connected with others and grow in your faith.
Adult Elective 1 (Young Adult) – This class now meets in the sanctuary. They are studying the book of Revelation.
Adult Elective 2 (Meets in Fellowship Hall) – This class is currently studying Hebrews.
Adult Elective 3 (Meets in Wesley Prayer Room) – This class has combined with the 1st class for a study of the book of Revelation. This Bible study is relevant, inspired, practical, and life changing.
Building Improvement update
Church Van (aka Ruby) – We anticipated $1000.00 for this. We paid only $400.00 to tow her back and she is now repaired and back on the road! Thanks to a generous donation of time and parts by the mechanic, Doug Parsons, the repairs didn’t cost anything! That’s incredible news! PTL
Parking Lot – We anticipated that this would cost us $10,000 to complete Phases 1 and 2. Phase 1 was making repairs and Phase 2 was resealing. It is now finished and the good news is that it cost $2,000 less than expected. PTL
Main Building Updates - We anticipated the updates costing around $2,000.00 but they ended up costing about $3,000. However, because of the sacrifice of time by our people doing the labor, it cost thousands less than if we hired someone to do it. Many improvements have been made, such as our Kidz Zone getting new floors and paint, our bathrooms & hallway having new tile flooring installed, our CE/conference room having new flooring installed along with some other improvements. Soon we will be installing new counters in the main building’s men’s and women’s bathrooms.
Family Center Updates – We anticipated $2000.00 but are increasing it to $3000.00. This isn’t bad considering all that we need. This project is just beginning and includes adding a small unisex bathroom in the gym, painting the fellowship hall women’s bathroom, purchasing new appliances (ice maker, stove, refrigerator), and repainting the kitchen.
Heat Pump – We have a heat pump in the main building that heats and cools the nursery and back bathrooms. This unit is 20+ years old and we know that someday it may stop working. We are saving funds to be able to replace it and anticipate the cost to be around $5,000.00.
The concept of equal giving has never existed at our church. Instead, we believe that the sacrifice should be equal. Everyone’s sacrifice is important if we are to be successful. Giving is a part of worship, but it must come from your heart to please God. Please pray about what God would have you to give above your tithe.
Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. – II Corinthians 9:7 NRSV
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.
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.
