People Changing Communities

In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.   Matthew 5:16

What happens when God’s people obey God’s prompting with God’s power?  God gets glorified, that’s what! There is a biblical principle you will find throughout the Scriptures of God using good deeds to create good will resulting in the opportunity to share the good news

Recently a newspaper article about Street Church affirmed this very principle. Street Church started over 10 years ago through PCC Pastor Tony Gapastione’s vision and now has grown beyond PCC under the excellent leadership of  PCC’er Dave Shearin, adopted by many churches in Redwood City. 

In this article, you will notice how God is using students from a school we are committed to partnering with, Roosevelt Elementary School, to join God in blessing our friends on the street.  It really is a divine convergence! 
Read for yourself here.*

Takeaway for us all?  Follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit!  We never know how God will use little acts of obedience to bless people in big ways!

This weekend we will be in a familiar passage: Luke 15 and will hear from a guest preacher from Chicago.  Come hungry and eager to serve!

I love being your pastor!
