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!
