INVITE FRIENDS, FAMILY, and NEIGHBORS TO EASTER!

Pray
Ask God who you should invite. Invite them to watch our Easter video. Pray for those you invited.

How to Invite

CALL them on the phone and tell them to go to PGCC.church on Sunday morning and click on "Watch Our Easter Service."

SEND them an email invitation. We sent an invitation on Wednesday morning that you can find in your inbox (or trash if you "accidentally" deleted it) and then forward to your friends.

PRINT an invitation and tape it to their door (or window, car, dog - whatever you think you can get away with) CLICK HERE to get an invitation you can print.
A Quick Thought from Pastor Phil
I was reading Colossians 4 as part of my daily quiet time this week and these verses struck me for their relevance to our current “stay at home” circumstances.

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains” (Col. 4:2-3).

Paul is forcibly “sheltered in place.” He’s in chains. He’s not going anywhere. But what does he ask prayer for? Despite not being able to go anywhere, Paul prays for an open door to share the good news about Jesus.

Will you join me in praying for the same thing for yourselves and for our church? Pray that despite not being able to get out, God will open doors for us to share with our neighbors the good news about Jesus. Jesus is alive and offers salvation, new life, and eternal life that gives us confidence and hope!
Today is GIVING THURSDAY

Give Time to Reach Out and Serve Others
