Pastor’s Update

Dear friend of Pine Mountain Christian Community Church,
Problems are real. Problems are no fun. But for those of us who are following Jesus, problems are opportunities in disguise. The sovereign God who rules over the universe, and who directs our steps, leads us into situations that cause us to depend on Him, and when we do, great things happen! We will certainly see that this Sunday as we continue our study of the Book of Acts, and see the Apostle Paul endure yet another trial – this time before king Agrippa II. This was probably the greatest challenge of his life at that point, and it became his greatest opportunity. This passage of Scripture will encourage us all to look for ways to use problems as opportunities to serve God and share Him with others. Can you imagine how our lives would change if instead of complaining about our problems, we viewed each problem as an opportunity to serve God? I’m going to put that to the test this week!
PLEASE NOTE THESE COMMENTS AND UPCOMING EVENTS:
* ATTENTION MEN! This Saturday, November 16th, is Men’s Breakfast! If you are in town, come join us for a great study of the Book of Jonah! The men wanted to take a look at difficult passages in the Bible, so this Saturday we will look at some of the difficulties that people have with this book: It this story true? Is there really a fish or whale big enough to swallow a person? Does God really control the creatures of the sea? Did the people of Nineveh really repent? What is the point of this book anyway? I hope you will join us for a very interesting discussion and a great time of fellowship (and the breakfast will be awesome!).
* ATTENTION EVERYONE! This Sunday, November 17th, is our monthly ALL CHURCH POT LUCK! This is always a great time to fellowship and enjoy some great food together. Please plan to join us at 12 noon and bring a main dish and a side dish (dessert, salad, or veggies). Drinks and table settings will be provided.
* Allie Kowalski is collecting stocking stuffers to place in stockings for kids during the annual “Christmas In the Village” event on December 14th at the gazebo across from the church. She’s planning to fill 150 stockings! There will be a box in the Library to collect small toys, games and candy.
* Allie is also collecting gifts to be used in the “One Stop Kids Shop” that will open during the “Christmas in the Village” event on December 14th in our Activities Center. There kids will be able to buy gifts for their siblings and parents for 25 cents! This is always a huge blessings to families – and each gift will have a Bible verse attached!
