A New Year of Obedience

by PGBC

With Christmas behind us, there is no doubt that many have recently read the passages from the Bible which depict the coming Christ child, as well as the nativity. This year one of the major themes that jumped out at me as I studied through the text, was the submission of Mary’s will that was […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR . . From the Library

by PGBC

First, let me say a big, “THANK YOU” for your contributions to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. You don’t realize how much our missionaries are depending on this extra money for all the needs they have. A house, a bicycle, a well, literature, supplies, etc. They send love and thanks to you all. Happy New […]

Eternity Hangs in the Balance

by PGBC

I was reminded of this passage this week.  Take a look at this account from the Gospel of John. CSB17 John 1:43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. He found Philip and told him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathanael […]

Better To Give Than To Receive

by PGBC

I’ll never forget the Christmas that I got into trouble by telling the truth. Coleman was about 5 years old and we were visiting family at Christmas time. Out of the blue, Coleman walks up and asks me “Dad is Santa Claus real?” I didn’t pay attention to the fact that other kids were standing […]

Merry Christmas friends at Pleasant Grove.  It’s that time of year.  What do you do to get ready?  Do you get down the decorations? Do you pull out favorite recipes?  Do you make lists? Do you start writing cards? Do you get out Christmas records or CD’s ? There is one thing you MUST do.  […]

God Is On The Throne No Matter What Happens On Election Day

by PGBC

I can hardly believe this year is almost over! As November arrives I immediately think of Thanksgiving and the reality that we should be thankful every day. As Thanksgiving approaches start now asking God to open your eyes to all the things you take for granted daily and be thankful for them.  I think of […]

Dry Bones Come Alive

by PGBC

I recently read again Ezekiel’s vision of the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel chapter 37. I have read the account before, but this time I literally had thoughts of Ellijay as I read it. In chapter 37: 4-5, the Lord tells Ezekiel to “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear […]

Acauas

by PGBC

What do all these subjects have in common? Missions in Ecuador…..Aviation Fellowship…Nursing…Wheaton College….Poisonous Spears….Shrunken Heads…Wycliffe Bible Translators…Acaua Indians. I think you must know by now that all these are part of the true story of the 5 missionaries that were killed by the Acauas in 1956 in the jungles of Ecuador. This savage tribe were […]

I Am Privileged

by PGBC

Recently, Nike announced that it would use Colin Kaepernick as the face of the 30th anniversary of the “Just Do It” campaign. Nike is free to use whomever they wish to use to promote their products, but I am just as free not to use their products if I so choose.  I am not going […]

Servants of the King

by PGBC

And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” (Mark 9:35) It seems like every time I turn around there is a need for people to help in some area of church life. From the nursery […]
