Feel God Near To You

by PGBC

One of the cutest and most helpful cards I received during my recovery from knee surgery is this… “If you have the ouchies…. I have the hugs” This just hit me as a good piece of advice. I have needed the hugs and love of my friends and I have gotten them. Thank you for […]

Prepare For Revival

by PGBC

Each August we plan to have a series of meetings we call revival.  We have been blessed to have some great men of God faithfully preach the Word of God to us each year.  Last year we had five men in here that did a great job sharing their heart and the heart of God, […]

I Will Follow You

by PGBC

I recently heard a song again that was released in 2015 called “I will follow you”. I knew the lyrics already, but I guess I had never focused on what was being said. One of the verses sings “when the sea is calm and all is right, when I feel your favor flood my life, […]

Enjoy Your Trip!

by PGBC

“Bon Voyage”, “All Aboard”, “Buckle Up” are expressions that make us think of traveling. All of us have dreams of places we’d like to visit—some far away and some just down the road. Some of these places we’ll never be able to visit. But reading a book with the setting in the place of our […]

July Is Upon Us

by PGBC

I can hardly believe that the summer is flying by like it is.  July is upon us and we have a busy month coming up.  July 2nd we will have a cookout/picnic at the church at 5pm and I look forward to a time of fun and fellowship with my brothers and sisters in Christ.  […]

Adversity As An Opportunity

by PGBC

Twenty years ago, I went rafting down the Ocoee River near Ducktown, TN. I remember the pre-rafting talk that the guide gave to us where he stated: “if you fall into the water do not put your feet down, rather keep them up as you are pushed downstream”. The reason for such instruction is so […]

Books I Have Been Reading

by PGBC

This may be the Library news but it’s from my “nest” at home right now.  As I sit here on the back porch soaking up the sun and beauty of the mountains, I am so very thankful for another successful surgery on my other knee and thankful for each of you and your prayers.  I […]

Give Thanks Always For Everything

by PGBC

Sometimes I will come across a passage that I have read numerous times and suddenly something lands on me that I had not really gotten my mind around before. Just recently I was studying in Ephesians and this verse just jumped all over me. It was one of those moments when a part of your […]

Are you growing in Christ?

by PGBC

Twenty-two years ago Janice and I embarked on a journey that we truly were not prepared for and had no idea where it would lead.  You see on the 3rd of May our baby girl will be 22 years old and I can hardly believe it.  I still remember the piercing cry that this tiny […]

Fear Of The Lord

by PGBC

Proverbs 19:23 states: “The fear of the Lord leads to life….” The theme of this year’s youth Disciple-Now weekend was “Fearless”, where the youth learned what it means to have life as children of an almighty God. Now my question for you is: do you fear the Lord? What does fearing the Lord even mean to you? Is […]
