WORSHIP SERVICE ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 6

Message given by David Hansen “What’s Your Story?”

Exodus 13:19-22

UPCOMING EVENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 13

You won’t want to miss Church on September 13!  You ask why, because we are having a 4 for 1 Sunday and you just can’t beat that for a Generous Deal.   Along with our A+ rated worship service, we are having the Annual Fall Festival Kick off with a Potluck dinner following the Worship service.  Now in my books that is only a 2 for 1.  So you are asking what else should we be looking forward to?  During the service we will also be dedicating the newly remodeled /expanded Grace Room plus kicking off the 2016 Stewardship Campaign which gives us the 4 for 1 Sunday.  Now I would call that a Generous offering. By the way, the theme for this year’s event is “Measuring What Matters: Stewardship As Discipleship”. A three week sermon series will be based off of the themes of Generosity of Spirit, Provision and Money.

VISIBILITY IN THE COMMUNITY:

There are 2 opportunities

ICT S.O.S. Race4Freedom and Art on the Trail event at the Great Plains Nature Center the weekend of PVCC Fall Festival.  Both are fun ways to be out in the community wearing your PVCC shirts.

1) ICT S.O.S. Race4Freedom

The mission of ICT S.O.S. is to end human trafficking in Wichita and the Race4Freedom is the organizations’ largest fund raiser of the year.  So far we have about 15 volunteers to set-up, clean-up, serve breakfast and whatever else is requested for this big fund raiser. There are opportunities to volunteer on Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12. Please go on-line and register for the times that work best for you and your family at www.race4freedom.com/volunteer. The location is Carpenter’s Place at Meridian between 13th and 15th streets.

There’s something for everyone!
