In an effort to make space for as many new friends and neighbors as possible, we're making a slight change to our worship times. Beginning November 6, we'll host worship at 9am and 10:30am. You can expect all the same Sunday morning elements—the times are simply adjusted with the hope of maximizing our space.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Psalm 150:6

The Bible Out Loud! We're celebrating the 5 year anniversary of PBC with an out loud Bible reading in the space God gave us. Reading begins Oct. 12 and continues through Oct. 22—our anniversary date. Sign up for a 30-minute time slot and read in the worship space. Not interested in reading—simply come and listen to the spoken Word! Sign-up log on the table near the Miracle Barn. Questions: Ron Bunch.
Fall study coming up! Each spring and fall we host an all-church study. Our goal is to know God more through through a church-wide focus on a particular subject. This fall we're reading What's so Spiritual about Your Gifts? It's not what you think—this isn't a spiritual gifts inventory. It's about the giver of those gifts—the Holy Spirit. Pastor Craig and Pastor Billy will share messages inspired by the book beginning 10.16. There are multiple small group options to connect. Finally, books and workbooks (both are helpful) are available at the Welcome Center. Suggested donation: $20.

Kids Life Group! Every Sunday morning during the message we'll gather to grow in Christ and community. During the month of September we're exploring everything about what it means that God is perfect. Our memory verse is Psalm 19:7a. Memorize it with us!
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Romans 12:11
