+Affirmation of Faith (unison) The Apostles’ Creed I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen. +Hymn #581

-WED//MAR 6: Ash Wednesday Service @ 7pm (No Youth this night) -SUN//MAR 24: Small Group Gathering "Team Night" (5:30-7:30p)
BACKPACKS OF LOVE -- Every Friday we fill backpacks for 57 Clear Creek students. Our greatest needs this week are dinner meats and vegetables. We are also low on PopTarts and snacks. GOD WILL PROVIDE (with a little help from us all!!!) Next Sunday night, 7 p.m. in the Kerr Building, the Celebration Singers will present the musical “Elijah! God’s Faithful Prophet.” These 17 singers, in grades 3-7, have worked hard, practicing Wednesday nights and most Sunday afternoons for the past six weeks, In the process they’ve not only memorized songs and lines, they’ve developed more self-confidence, experienced what it’s like to work as a team on stage, formed closer relationships with each other, and, hopefully, taken to heart Elijah’s message for us all – that God will provide. Your contribution to the current fund makes this opportunity and so many others possible, enabling our young people to grow up surrounded by God’s love and grace as they – and all of us – strive to live out PPC’s vision to Believe, Love Evangelize, Share and Serve. Thank you for your support - and make plans now to come to the show!!! MIDWEEK PRAYER SERVICE – Join us for an informal time of prayer every Wednesday 12:00- 12:30PM in the sanctuary. Escape the busyness of your work week, and join us for a time of reflection and prayer. If you're unable to join us, we invite you to pray with us from wherever you are. We really believe this will be a refreshing time. TEN CENTS A MEAL—next Sunday we will receive our Ten Cents a Meal offering to help fight hunger.
RISE AGAINST HUNGER—Evangelism & Outreach is excited to announce that Rise Against Hunger is back! Make plans to attend Rise Against Hunger after Traditional Service on Sunday, March 17th. We will pack at least ten thousand meals for those in need. This is a great event for all ages to connect and serve as one church family. Feel free to invite friends and family to help Rise Against Hunger!
