Where? What? When?
This year’s Fall Festival at PFWC will be like never before! For the very first time at PFWC our fall festival will double as a benefit for a young man named Jackson. Jackson is a six-year-old boy with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Businesses from all over the Roanoke Valley are coming to be a part of this great event, to help make a difference in the life of this family. Activities include: Carnival games, a petting zoo, inflatables, a classic car show, music, and of course food. You will even have the opportunity to dunk your favorite (or least favorite) pastor in the dunk tank. Not only will kids have a chance at winning prizes during the carnival games, but also adults will have the opportunity to win some great prizes during our raffle!
On top of everything else, Virginia Blood Services will be back again this year running a blood drive. VBS supplies blood directly to our very own Carillion Hospital, so we are excited to be able to partner with them again this year to make a difference in our community.
We need your help to get the word out! Share it on Facebook, invite friends, family, and coworkers, send out a carrier pigeon, whatever you can do to let, as many people know as possible.

NO EXCUSE SUNDAY
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 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 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, relate-able 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!
Attention Men! Come to Hardees on Electric Rd. at 6:00 AM on Tuesdays for breakfast, devotions, and prayer. It’s a great time of encouragement. We have had as many as 14 men show up and as few as two. See you there!
WOMEN’S MINISTRY – LAUGH
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. All women are welcome. 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 labels 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.
