I am writing you to both ask for your help and offer help. During the last six months, Pine Mountain Christian Community Church has been actively helping individuals and families out of work because of Covid-19. We have provided food, firewood, gas for cars, transportation to critical appointments, and have helped with various bills. If you know of people here in PMC who could use assistance, please let me know by calling the church at 661-242-1025. If you yourself are in need, please don’t hesitate to call me – we are here to help.
I also recognize that Covid-19 has caused more than just physical difficulties. If you are struggling with loneliness, depression, marital problems, or difficulties with children or family issues, I would welcome your call.
If you are struggling with, or curious about, spiritual issues such as the reality of God, His love, mercy and direction in your life, I again welcome you to call, or to stop by for a social-distance visit.
Lastly, I want to suggest to you that the solution to all problems, whether physical, emotional or spiritual, begin with a move toward God. He loves you and offers help, guidance, and salvation to all who humble themselves and call upon Him. He has proved His love for us by visiting us in Yeshua Messiah, or, as many call Him, Jesus Christ. Jesus died in our place on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin, and then rose from the dead so that we can know that we too will rise from the dead and have eternal life if we put our complete trust in Him.
Jesus stressed the importance of turning to God in His very first sermon. He said, “Repent, for the kingdom of God is near” (Matthew 3:2). Repent means “to turn”. God wants us to turn from running our own lives and turn to trust God and follow His Son Jesus. If you would like to take the first step toward God so that you can experience His love, forgiveness, and help, you might get alone and pray something like this:
“Lord Jesus, thank you for coming from heaven so that I can know who God is. I admit that I am far from perfect. I know I am a sinner. I repent and accept your suffering and death on the cross as a payment for all my sins. I believe that You have risen from the dead, and I now receive You as both my Savior and Lord. From now on I will follow You, and live for Your great kingdom. Amen.”
When we place our complete trust in Christ, He forgives our all our sins, enters our heart and is with us to comfort and guide us in every situation. I have enclosed a pamphlet that I hope will help you. I would also like to invite you to join us for church in person at 16301 Askin Dr. in Pine Mountain Club at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Or, if you prefer, you can join us online at pmccc.org.
I know God will bless you as you trust and follow Jesus,
Pastor Rick / email@example.com
