The Practice of Visioneering Pastor Ray Noah
TO PORTLAND CHRISTIAN CENTER
We are so glad you have come to worship with us. We have prayed about the service today, and we are confident you will experience a real sense of God’s presence in our midst. Although we come into His presence fully human, and—unfortunately often—imperfect, we believe we are a church family that pleases the heart of God. You will discover the very nature of Portland Christian Center cannot be pinned to a building, a program or an event—it is about the person of Jesus Christ and growing in a love relationship with Him. Our prayer for you today is that His love would fill you to the point where it overflows naturally into your everyday lives. We invite you to take steps today to:
WORSHIP God with your whole heart. He will be an anchor for your soul. CONNECT with others in our church family. You were meant for community. GROW in Christ through personal study & groups. Wisdom will guide your life. SERVE both in the church and the world as an expression of God's love. SHARE with others what Jesus has done for you and watch your heart grow.
Pastor Ray & Linda Noah
AS OUR GUEST TODAY We invite you to fill out a Friendship Card found in the back of the pew. Please take it to the Welcome Center in the lobby for a special welcome gift. We look forward to learning how we can help, pray for and connect you with our church family.
FOR YOUR CHILDREN & STUDENTS We believe that investing in our children is one of the best things we can do as a church. Each Sunday we have great opportunities for children to grow, from birth through college.
