Jesus Receives The Needy

by PGBC

In Mark 5:21-43 we find the account of Jesus encountering two people that were from very different places in life. First, we have Jairus the respected member of society and a leader in the synagogue. Jairus had prestige in his community, but Jairus also had a great need. You see Jairus’s daughter was very ill […]

A Church That Cares About The Community Around Her

by PGBC

I am so grateful to be a part of a church that cares about the community around her and wants to reach out beyond the walls of our church! We have been to both the high school and middle school Christian Learning Centers and just shown the love of Christ to young people by sharing […]

Be a Part of a Great Work of God

by PGBC

We are just one month into the New Year and I can imagine that many, perhaps most, of the New Year’s resolutions have already been broken. We come into the year with great expectations and plans, but often don’t put details to the goals or plans and therefore make it very difficult on ourselves to […]

Let God Be The Focus OF 2019

by PGBC

I can hardly believe a new year is already upon as.  As we look forward to 2019, I pray we do so with great anticipation.  It might be tempting to look around and lament over a decaying world, a crazy political climate, and a frenetic pace that seems to have no end and worry about […]

Eternity Hangs in the Balance

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

New Pavilion And Basketball Court

by PGBC

We are in the home stretch for our fund raising toward our new pavilion and basketball court.  Thanks to the generous offer of matching gifts we are creeping ever closer to our goal of raising $50,000 in gifts or pledges that will be matched by another $50,000.  These matching gifts will take us to the […]

When God Brings Changes

by PGBC

As I write this article it is over half way through the month of July and August is approaching. For Janice and me, the month of August comes with excitement and some sadness for the passing of time. You see in August, we will move Brooks into his dorm and he will start college. One […]

Exciting Things To Come

by PGBC

I was very pleased with the interest in spiritual gifts and the number of folks that signed up and came to do the spiritual gifts assessment.  That shows me that you want to know how God has gifted you and you are willing to do something about it. Sunday night July 1st, I will have […]
