Our stewardship campaign is coming to a close and as your pastor, I want to personally thank you. Thank you for your commitment to Christ and His church. I know I've said this many times over the past four weeks, but God has done so much at Pleasant Valley through you, and I know there is much more to come!
This Sunday, we will be bringing forward our service and giving cards. These cards serve as a reminder to us that we have a gift to share. Through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness we help connect people to Jesus Christ, while making the community better, safer and stronger.
If you haven't picked up your giving and service cards, we will have extra copies available at both campuses this Sunday.
Thank you again for being a part of Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church… I am humbled and honored to be your pastor.
Let’s face it: we live in a busy world that often makes people feel small, unimportant and forgotten.
But the good news is, we have a great church... a terrific place where people can feel larger than life, valued, and remembered! I know Tracy and I feel that way, and I hope you do too!
This Sunday, we’re inviting those members who haven’t attended church in a while to come back... and it would be a great time to invite others too!
We will have coffee and refreshments following both services, so please invite your families, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone else who may need a good ol’ dose of Pleasant Valley hospitality to join us!
We have a great church family whose love and support has been such a blessing to Tracy and me over the past year. Who do you know that could benefit from such a loving congregation?
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday... and meeting those you invite to join us!
In January 2014, a group of PV members gathered for our first-ever planning retreat, and coming out of that time, we set some pretty BIG, lofty and audacious goals for our church. At that time, I honestly wondered if we had set the bar too high, but I’ve got great news to share: We’ve made great progress on all of them!
Here is a summary of the 4 goals that were set during the planning retreat, as well as an update on where things currently stand:
As you can see, we’ve made great strides on all of our BIG goals… and some of them we can actually check off our list as completed. Very exciting!
But we still have a ways to go on a few. Here are a few suggestions on ways you can help us get closer to the rest of our goals:
It’s obvious that God has BIG things in store for us as we journey toward the end of the year. We’ll have several opportunities for guests, family and friends to come and see what we’re all about. Please don’t be shy about your great love for our church. It’s your endorsement that will likely encourage them to come.
Thanks for your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness for our church!
We will have a booth where kids can play games, and we’ll also be helping with the hayride and bounce houses.
We’re looking for 10 volunteers to come out and serve the Sachse residents, but everyone is welcome to join us. Be sure to wear your Pleasant Valley/Journey shirt and come meet families that live in Sachse.
Please email me if you can volunteer.
This Sunday is the last Sunday we’re collecting Barbies and action figures for the orphans in Bolivia. We will be packing them up in a suitcase for Anne & Tony Graves to take to Bolivia when they visit Danyelle before Christmas.
Finally, I wanted again to thank you for what you do for our Church. Tracy and I are blessed to be a part of the Pleasant Valley family, and we were so honored by the gift card and tickets you gave to us last Sunday.
It takes all of us working together to connect people to Jesus Christ while making the community better, safer and stronger.
Thank you for being a part of our wonderful Church!
