Your Giving Matters

As COVID-19 began to impact our world, PBC was blessed by the giving of our church members allowing us to begin our on-line presence and keep us all connected. In the month of April, our giving on-line rose to 50%. As the summer came and things relaxed, so has our giving. We are currently over $33,000 under budget for the year. Help us now with your on-going giving as we continue our worship services on-line and in-person. You can give by going Here, mail it to the church or drop it into the baskets in the rear of the auditorium when you worship with us in-person.

Your faithful giving to PBC keeps us
Better Together
