Park Avenue Wednesday Supper
Join us this Wednesday for our PAWS meal at 5:15PM. We will be having a King Ranch Chicken, Veggies, Salad & Dessert.  The meal will be prepared by Shelly Calvert and her team.  After our meal we meet in our Discipleship Communities. Talk to Lantz about what communities are available. Classes for our children are also available for kids of all ages.

Good morning and welcome to our worship service. What a blessing to be able to gather together in the name of Christ with our brothers and sisters. A special welcome to our guests.

This morning I will be talking more about the roles of Elders as we continue in the process of nominating men to serve PACOC in that capacity. Members can nominate qualified men through the app, website, or you can find paper forms at the welcome centers.

One of our missions here at PACOC is to spread the good news of Christ to those far and near. For that reason we challenge every member to give generously to our Grace Offering contribution   taken on Easter Sunday. This year Easter falls on April 9. The week before Easter, April 2, we invite all of our kids to participate in the grace of giving as we fill up Daisy’s Little Red Wagon with coins collected throughout the year. Hopefully many of you are in the process of filling up your Grace Offering containers. If you’ve lost track of your container or are new to PACOC and  need a container we have several available on the stage for you to pick up. Send your child or grandchild up and give them the blessing of learning generosity and the joy of participating in our call to spread the word. All of the money collected in Daisy’s Little Red Wagon and the contribution on Easter Sunday go to support many of our outreach ministries locally and globally.

So glad to have everyone here with us this morning as we pause in the midst of a hectic and troubling world to remember who is King and to renew our calling to live as His children ever looking forward to the day when He will make all things new!
