Pastor’s Update

Dear friend of Pine Mountain Christian Community Church,
Jesus said the two greatest commandments are to love God and to love our neighbor. We have a great opportunity to do both as we stay at home. Our time at home should allow us to spend time alone with God reading His Word, talking to Him about the concerns on our heart, and caring for the people in our household. And believe it or not, one of the best ways to show love for our neighbor is to stay at home! Statistics have already shown that our staying at home has slowed the spread of Covid-19. For this reason the Church Council has decided to close the church building. Fortunately, the church is not a building! I want to encourage you to stay in touch with one another by text, phone, mail, or email, and let’s be praying for one another. Although the church is closed, the Music team and I will be at church Sunday morning and we will live stream our worship service. We have invited the whole community to join us online! Every P.O. Box in Pine Mountain Club has received a post card inviting them to join us as we talk about the coming of Jesus to Jerusalem as Messiah-King, His betrayal and crucifixion at the Good Friday Service at 7 p.m., and His Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Please join me in praying that the Holy Spirit will use the present circumstances to touch people’s hearts and draw them to observe the services online and hear the gospel.
PLEASE NOTE THESE COMMENTS AND EVENTS:
* Unfortunately, the live stream to our website didn’t happen last Sunday morning. However, the audio of the sermon is on our website under the “sermons” tab. We learned a lot about streaming last week and Lord willing it will happen this Sunday. We will do tests on Friday and Saturday to make sure it works. However, Jon Serrano used his phone to live stream the service on the church FaceBook page. 63 people have gone to our FaceBook page to view the service between Sunday and today. Most of them do not attend our church!  I think we have a great opportunity to use technology to reach out to our community. I’m sure many will watch just to find out what goes on in our building!
* As a church, we are ready to help people in our community. I have already met with several families who are out of work and have no income. We have already provided food, firewood, and errands for people. We are also prepared to help with electricity bills, propane bills, provide gas for vehicles, and other needs through our Mercy Ministry. Please let me know if we can help you or people you know in our community.
* I want to thank all of you who have sent in your tithes and offerings to the church through the mail. We are behind in our budget, but we, like everyone else are depending on God to meet our needs. You can mail a check to PMCCC, P.O. Box 5245, Pine Mountain Club, CA 93222. You may also call Marsha Fiore at 818-631-7035 and she will tell you how you can give electronically.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR:
* Sunday,  April 5th at 10 a.m.: Palm Sunday Service streamed live on pmccc.org  Sermon: “Make Way For the King!” Matthew 21:1 – 11
