Thank You’s
Thank you to everyone for the prayers, cards, well wishes, and support during my recent surgery and recovery. It has meant so much to me. I am still recovering but doing well.  Mark Ewig
We appreciate your love, prayers, and support during this difficult time. It’s very hard to put into words how much each and every one of you mean to us. A special thank you to Todd for leading the service and bringing the message that touched so many hearts, to Bradley for leading the singing, the praise team and their beautiful voices, the ladies that prepared and served the delicious meal, Cina and Tyler who ran the slide show and operated the audio visual system, and everyone that came to mom’s celebration of life. Psalms 147:3 tells us, “He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds”. We count you, your prayers, and your support as blessings from our Lord and Savior! I am so thankful for my church family! In Christian love, Joyce Milton (Susie), Patty, & Bonnie (the Henshaw Family)

Good morning and welcome to our worship service. If you are a guest with us this morning we welcome you and invite you to join in with us as we honor our Creator and Savior.

I want to encourage everyone to make plans to be with us on Sunday, April 21 for our Neighbor Fun Day. After worship we will gather out on the lawn for food, games, and fellowship. We want all of you to enjoy this, but we especially want you to use this event as an opportunity to invite friends, neighbors, and family to church and then to stick around for the event.

Every church needs to be an inviting church looking for opportunities, and even making opportunities, to introduce people to Jesus. I’ll be talking more about that in the sermon time today. So, think of someone to invite and take the initiative to reach out to them. To plan as well as we can, we are asking everyone to register so we can have enough food. Sign up on the app or the website or give the office a call at 903-465-1288 to RSVP.

We had a great crowd on Easter and a great Grace Offering. We are nearing our goal but are still a little short. If you weren’t here Sunday to contribute to the Grace Offering you can still add to the amount. If you give online the best way to make sure your gift goes to the Grace Offering is to choose “Grace Offering” as the fund you are contributing to. Or, you can give your gift directly to an elder or the church office. Thanks to everyone for your generosity as we all answer the call to GO and teach and make disciples.

No doubt you have seen and heard the projections of significant growth here in Texoma over the next decade and beyond. As a church we want to be ready for that growth by preparing ourselves to be a body of Christ that is faithful to reaching our community. In regard to that, George Hatfield (one of our elders) will be making an announcement today about an initiative we are taking to envision God’s future for PACOC. As God has always led us in the past, we are confident of his continued leadership as we Press On!
