  • PSC's Off Broadway Preschool

A Word from Andrew... Annual Meeting this Sunday...

Dear Pine Street Church Members and Friends,

This Sunday, January 26, is our Annual Meeting immediately following our Sunday worship gathering. I encourage you to join your fellow Pine-heads for this year-in-review to celebrate our ministry successes over the past 12 months. 

We will also honor our outgoing Council of Ministries leaders, vote on a new slate of 2020 leaders for our newly formed Leadership Council as well as Chairs of Standing Committees. We will vote on becoming a congregational partner of a national group of LGBTQ+ advocates, Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists (AWAB), and we will vote on our 2020 financial plan/budget. 
As we step in to 2020, we do so with much momentum gained in 2019 and anticipation of the next 12 months of transforming ministry ahead that will lead us to fulfill our call to embrace everyone , inspire life, and create more. 

Thank you for who you are and all that you do (seen and unseen) to make PSC the  extraordinary spiritual  community that it is. I am  honored to serve among  you. We have so much to offer the world locally and globally. The world needs a church like this at a time like this. Our contributions are needed at this time of our lives and in the life of our times now more than ever. 

Here's to all that we will celebrate and accomplish  together in 2020. 

See you Sunday,

Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO)

Honoring the Service of God's Servants

Throughout the month of January, we will be receiving the annual RMMO (Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering). We sometimes refer to this as a Thank You offering....a time for us to remember, celebrate and give thanks for pastors who may have inspired, encouraged, mentored or supported us in times of joy and in times of sorrow.

You'll hear more about this offering each Sunday, but please begin reflecting on what you might contribute to help us reach our goal of $1,000. 

With gratitude,
Heart for Mission Team

The Pine Street Church family extends our love and sympathy to the family of Anna Jo Murrow.  May 22, 1935--December 13, 2019

A service dedicated to the glory of God and in loving memory of Anna Jo Murrow will be held Saturday, February 8, at 11am in the sanctuary at Pine Street Church.
