Where? What? When?
Sunday will be Scout Sunday! It is one of our largest Sunday’s of the year. We will recognize the Girl Scouts during the 9:30 AM Worship Service and the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts during the 11:00 AM service. If you are able to attend the 9:30 Worship Service that would help! Pastor Myron will resume the series, wrestling with Romans.” – This Sunday’s sermon will be based on Romans 1:19-20. You won’t want to miss it!
CONCERT @ PFWC
LU Praise is a 22–member gospel choir that serves as an official representative team for Liberty University’s Center for Music and Worship. We are excited that they will be here at PFWC in concert at 11:00 AM on March 23rd. This will be an exciting day that will pack out the sanctuary. Churches larger than ours have already asked how we were able to get them. You won’t want to miss it. Because of the complexities of this day, we will be having only one service. We will be taking a love offering to help with transportation and providing a meal for them. We will need your help with food. Watch for more info and plan to invite your friends, relatives, associates, and neighbors to PFWC! We have the best church in the county! Tell others about it!

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 is 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 older and newer songs.
11:00 AM – This is a Blended Contemporary Service. The worship music will use the full band and will include a mixture of mostly newer songs.
We 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!
Our Spring Work Day is only a little over a month a way and will take place on March 22nd, the first day of Spring! We didn’t have a workday last year so we have a lot to do. If you would like to begin getting started you may.
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: $10,998.40. 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.
