Good News

I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. John 13:15-17

Skip Vaccarello writes a blog entitled Finding God in Silicon Valley. It is a tremendous resource I access often to find inspiring stories of how God is at work in our neck of the woods.  In the past, PCC’ers Dr. John Dearborn and Dr. Paul Baba have been featured in the blog.  This week, PCC is featured.

I’ll say it over and over again; serving our way into the community with good works creates good will, which allows us to best share the Good News. And the Good News is so good and relevant in our day on this Peninsula. May we never forget that!

As we enter into the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season, we will all have the opportunity to be Good News through serving at catalytic outreaches like our Thanksgiving Outreach, Kennedy Christmas Outreach and Advent Conspiracy.

We are also praying that we would unapologetically be good news to others in bringing them to our special Tim Zimmerman concert, weekend services and our four Christmas Eve services at 4, 6, 9, and 11pm. Oh God, allow PCC to be a community of “bringers” this Christmas Season!

Would you please take a moment and access the links above and be encouraged by the lives of John Dearborn, Paul Baba and the community of PCC?  Then please take another moment and pray for us in the coming months to boldly step out with a spirit of audacious generosity in the coming weeks.

This weekend, we will continue in our In Christ journey through Ephesians looking at parenting!  I promise both a ton of laughs and great encouragement to parents and us all.  Want to read up ahead of time?  Sit in Ephesians 6:1-4 and come with an eager heart to serve and worship God. Thanks for being Good News.

I love being your pastor!
