This Sunday is Connect Sunday and will provide you with an opportunity to give and receive!

The Apostle Peter encouraged us to give out of what we've received from God.

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms" (1 Peter 4:10 NIV).

Connect Sunday is all about helping people move forward no matter what stage they find themselves in with their relationship with God.

We can't give anything of substance unless we've received! There are various ways for you to receive at Pickering Pentecostal Church. We have small groups where you can experience care, encouragement and accountability. We have weekly ministries that help disciple children, youth and young adults. There are regular events for singles, couples, men, women and seniors. Whatever season of life you are in, there is lots of opportunity to be ministered to and receive what you need from God. This Sunday at PPC, they'll be opportunity to engage with and be a part of these kinds of ministries.

But Connect Sunday is also about giving. God is desiring to see us empowered to serve others. As Peter says, each of us should use our gifts to serve others. How has God gifted you and how can you use those gifts to serve others? There are lots of opportunities to minister to others and serve at PPC. This Sunday, you'll learn more about various ministries and given a chance to sign-up to serve. Whether you serve in one of our hospitality ministries, with our children or youth, on stage with our worship team, or in the community with one of our outreach ministries, there's lots of opportunity to serve others and be used by God.

So as our church continues to move forward in what God has for us in 2018, our prayer is that you will find a place to both give and receive and step into all that God has for you this year!

MOVING FORWARD

PPC – we are on a journey and it's going to be an exciting one. Are you ready?

Here are 4 simple principles that we encourage you to engage in, so that the journey will become above and beyond your wildest expectation.

1 .GET SPIRITUALLY PREPARED – READING THRU THE WORD IN 2018

2 .ENGAGE IN PRAYER -BECOME SPIRITUALLY ARMED FOR BATTLE

3 .PARTICIPATE IN WORSHIP –COME AND REJOICE IN THE GREATNESS OF OUR GOD

4. JOIN IN PARTNERSHIP IN MINISTRY – UNITY IN SERVICE RELEASES GODS POWER IN US

This year we are going to embark on this journey beginning with the Book of JOSHUA.

For 40 years, Israel wandered around the wilderness on a circular route not because God intended them to be lost, but because they choose to become lost due to their disobedience.In order to seize the promises that God had in store for them, some faith was required on their part.Only two people (Joshua and Caleb) determined to maintain their journey of faith.Hence lack of faith caused the people of Israel to spend 4 decades (40 years) of their lives, just wandering!

Have you ever wondered how many situations you could have avoided, had faith been a part of your journey at that time?

Nevertheless, as God had promised to never leave them, He fulfilled His Word and watched over them, even in the seasons of their disobedience and sometimes rebellion. One of the incredible wonders of God is that He continues to strive with us humans, even when are so undeserving of His mercies.The Book of Joshua demonstrates the awesome power of God while, at the same time, so illustrative of the awesome love and grace of Christ.

Joshua, the son of nun, chosen by God to lead a sometimes-faithless people into God's promises found that the only way to conquer their enemies and take God's promises, was to embark on the journey by faith; dwell on the journey in faith and demonstrate to the heathen worlds that faith still causes the impossible to become possible!

LET'S DO IT PPC- Take the faith journey in 2018 and seize what God wants to do!

As we look forward to Christmas, we are reminded that Jesus is the living Word of God: "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us." (John 1:14) 2 Timothy3:16 reminds us that "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

A couple of years ago, we as a pastoral staff were challenged by the reality that so many struggle to read the Bible in a disciplined way---in fact many Christians have never read through the Bible completely.We created a plan to help you to read through the entire Bible at a rate of one chapter per day from January to November each year, with a change of gears for the Advent season. Even if you haven't been a part of that plan up until now, can I encourage you to join us?

Don't worry about what you've missed---just join where we are and be enriched and challenged by the living Word of God! For those of you who have been reading the Bible along with us, we reach the end of our annual reading plan on Friday, with Psalm 45. We will also begin our daily readings for Advent that day with Genesis 3, where God promises a Redeemer for the first time: "I will put enmity between you [the serpent] and the woman [Eve] and between your offspring and hers; He [Jesus] will crush your head, and you will strike his heel."

You can pick up our advent readings bookmark on Sunday, and/or join our online Bible-reading group here. [There are further instructions and information about the apps for iOS and Android here on our website as well.]
