Good morning, church family! If you're new to our weekly newsletter, we structure it according to our three pillars: worship, discipleship, and service. We pray that the PBC Weekly will help you get to know our church and stay connected throughout the week.
"May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." - Romans 15:5-6
Yesterday, Pastor Craig reminded us to be discerning, using the minds God gave us. Weren't able to join us? Listen to the sermon on our website or search "Prairie Bible Church Messages" on your favorite podcast app.
A huge thank-you to Adam and our band for leading us in praising God together. Weren't the songs powerful this week? The lyric, "Be Thou my wisdom and Thou my true word," fit especially well with the sermon, reminding us to seek God's wisdom in all things. To listen to some of our favorite songs, check out this Spotify Playlist!
Did you notice our new seating wing? Romans 15:7 calls us to welcome one another as Christ welcomes us, so we are committed to making room for everyone who wants to come and meet Jesus. We are so thankful to those who volunteered their time and skill to create this beautiful space!
"Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ." - Colossians 1:28

At the same time, Pastor Billy (firstname.lastname@example.org) is leading a new discussion group called Salt & Light. This group aims to equip parents (and anyone who is interested!) to navigate contemporary issues with truth and grace. Salt & Light meets in the offices across from the main building, and childcare is available for kids who are too young for 412 Youth.

Mission Spotlight: Merry Christmas, everyone! PBC is getting a head start on the most wonderful time of the year by supporting Operation Christmas Child (OCC) throughout October. OCC packs and delivers gifts to children in need all around the world. Most importantly, OCC delivers the greatest gift of all: the gospel of Jesus!
You can support OCC by purchasing items for gift boxes, such as stuffed animals, children's clothing, and school supplies. Our Kids Life Group will gather and pack these gifts in shoeboxes that will be sent worldwide to other children! If you are willing to purchase items for OCC, please sign up here: Sign-Up Form. If you cannot sign up online or would like more information, please contact Megan Hughes: (319) 360-4558, Megan@hughesnursery.com.
