It's a new year!



As many of you likely know, our budget each year is approved by the congregation at the annual business meeting in November. That approval is not just a casual "thumbs up." It is a covenant that our members make with God and with this church community to meet the needs of ministry at Peters Creek Baptist Church. The budget not only provides salaries for church personnel, but it funds outreach events like THE WAY and the Community Picnic, it purchases new music for worship, curriculum for Bible and Life, access to Right Now Media and Dwell apps: it works our audio and live stream systems, provides for heat and light and water. It subsidizes adult and youth mission trips and children's VBS. the list goes on and on. Your Tithes and offerings are investments into the extraordinary --the life-changing, truth-affirming, and soul-saving work of ministry.


In 2023, your giving was tremendous--99.0% of budget! Make 2024 a year of extraordinary investment into ministry--though your giving, yes--but also through your involvement, your support, and your commitment to connection and serving in the church.




Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing: now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:18-19

A GriefShare support group is a safe welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13 week group, you'll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what's "normal" in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you'll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability--and gain solid support each step of the way.

Living for Christ

by Lydia Brownback

The book of Philippians describes the pain the apostle Paul endured as a follower of Christ. Writing to the church in Philippi, he declares that nothing-not even imprisonment-will stop him from rejoicing in the Lord. That's because Jesus was Paul's reason for living. Philippians, perhaps more than any other New Testament epistle, anchors believers in joy and a contagious passion for Christ.

Join Lydia Brownback as she walks chapter by chapter through the book of Philippians. Paul's letter demonstrates the abundant joy that is possible through unity in Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. By understanding Philippians, believers learn how to find contentment in God, even during difficult times.

Monday Study:

Systematic Theology by R.C Sproul

8:00 pm, Social Hall

Utilizing resources from R.C Sproul, this study is intended to lay a solid foundation for believers who seek a better understanding of who God is and why He is worthy of our praise.

Tuesday Study:

1 Thessalonians by Ben Stuart

7:00 pm, Room 100

What is God's will for our lives and why is it important to know? In this eight-session series, Pastor Ben Stuart shows us that Jesus calls us to live our faith openly letting the world see our allegiance to him. When we are being faithful, pressing against culture, others can't help but notice. As we live confident of our good future in God's kingdom, we show the world where--and in whom--their hope lies.
