From Your Pastor's Heart
October 14, 2018
Next week a large contingent from PBC will be going to Israel. I need to make three comments to you in light of this. First, don’t think the rapture has occurred next Sunday when you show up and many people are missing. Second, it is important for you who are “left behind” to be here in force to make up the difference. Those who will be leading the services need your support, so make this a priority next Sunday. Third, if you have a need, contact one of the elders or deacons not traveling. Or you may call the office and Karen Angel will handle your need. On the other hand, I encourage the church body to step up and help meet those needs.
For those going on the trip, it will be an incredible opportunity to walk where Jesus walked and see the actual sites of many of the scriptural accounts. I know we will come back inspired from this trip. Thank you in advance for praying for us and for holding down the fort while we are away. Expect to see lots of pictures when we return. This is my first trip to Israel, but I have always wanted to go. I consider this an amazing privilege and we are tremendously grateful for this opportunity.
