Sharing God's Message each Sunday

Rev. Sue Bennetch

Sermon:  A Mountaintop Experience

Scripture Readings:

Exodus 34:29-35  NIV
Luke 9:28-36  NIV

This week's readings tell the story of Moses and God on
Mt. Sinai and Jesus and the Transfiguration.
Light, brilliance and radiance are depicted in their encounter with God.  We too want that radiance -- for its light, its warmth and
its renewing attributes.  Let us follow the light!

Ash Wednesday Worship

Sermon:  "A Disciple's Guide to Lent"

Scripture Readings:

2 Corinthians 5:20-6:10  NIV
Isaiah 58:1-12  NIV

Prayer of Confession:  Psalm 51-17

This worship message is from the text of Isaiah.  It is a lesson on discipleship living -- pointers, instructions, ideas!!  What better way to prepare for lent than to get our priorities straight?

Bring your family & friends!

Keep Sunday Holy -
Our church, along with other local churches is a part of the Keep Sunday Holy Team.  We want to keep Sunday morning free of mandatory events like sporting practices or games.  That way, we can choose church, if we feel it has an importance in our family.  This effort was started as a result of a letter from a teenager about how her family has been torn up over the choice of church attendance versus other “mandatory” events outside of church.  So far we have started conversations via letters to the Editor.  We manned a tent for 2 days at the West End Fair to share our feelings.  We are also encouraging other churches to join in this effort.  We consider this to be a non-confrontational, ecumenical bridge building service to strengthen families in their spiritual growth.  We also have shirts available with our Keep Sunday Holy logo on them for only $10 - see Jeff if interested.  Our next meeting here at PVPC is scheduled for Tuesday, February 16 at 7:00 pm - come see what we're all about!

Crisis Meals - Deacon's are asking for meals to be prepared ahead of time and frozen in the church freezer.  Please label what the meal is and the date prepared.  This will expedite the process of getting meals to those in need.   Any questions, just call the church office.

Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network  (PVEN) is always in need of non-perishable food items as they help many families in need in our community!  Also needed are Pleasant Valley School District approved clothing and warm weather clothing & blankets.  Please help us to keep our pantry well stocked by remembering those in need as you shop.  No donation is too small!  Donations can also be brought directly to PVEN at
279 Greenview Drive, (located at the corner of McIlhaney Road & Greenview Drive just behind the Chestnuthill Diner) on Tuesday & Friday mornings, 9:00-11:30 or left here at PVPC where we will make sure they are delivered to PVEN.  THANK YOU!
