Dear Pittsford Community Church Family,

Check below for the link so you can register, grow, and become a fully engaged part of the family. To our current members, thanks for being a part of this great family and keep praying for God’s blessing as we help ordinary people become fully formed followers of Jesus Christ.

Safety First

We want to remind ourselves that, for everyone’s safety and in compliance with state guidelines, those who attend services and small groups in person at PCC should wear masks and maintain six-foot social distancing between families. Masks must be worn during class times and during services (except when the congregation is seated for the sermon).

Community Outreach - MARCH - Easter Egg Hunt In a Box

Easter is just around the corner, and this March we have a NEW family friendly missional initiative. BUT you don't need to have a family to facilitate this event. We are offering an Easter Egg Hunt in A Box, ready for your own neighborhood outreach! All needed materials will be provided. To get a Box, sign up via email at Pittsfordccoutreach@gmail.com or at the church table. Boxes can be picked up at the tables either Sunday 3/14 or 3/21. More details are on the Missions Tile above or Special Event tile. Contact Elaine Pragle or Robynlyn Ketchum at Pittsfordccoutreach@gmail.com for questions or concerns.

ROAD TO MEMBERSHIP

Our newest 12-week membership class will be held on Sunday mornings, 10:00-11:00, via Zoom starting March 14th. There’s still time to sign up. David and Carlene Huang will lead you through basic spiritual formation, the church’s mission, and the steps to membership. Register online at www.pittsfordcc.org and you’ll receive a link to the class, as well as class notes. Membership is like joining a family. Why not join this year?

Ministry Opportunities and Needs

Denise Johnson’s son and daughter-in-law are facing a major challenge this month. Ashley is on bed rest until a scheduled C-section on March 16. They have a 2 year old and a 4 year old. Please help them out with meals during this time by signing up here: https://mealtrain.com/720yl1


Love one another: We are still looking for some individuals [adult, older teens] or couples who would be willing and able to love on our young mothers, families and littlest attendees. How? We will be opening our nursery during 2nd service this month (March). If you would be willing to offer some TLC to our babies and toddlers so our young families can attend services and enjoy, please shoot a text [520-9756] or email [epragle@pittsfordcc.org] to Elaine Pragle.


Heads up! Our preschool children's church [age 2-5 y.o.] will be opening in March! If you have a child whom you would like to attend, please text message Elaine Pragle [520-9756] or email [epragle@pittsfordcc.org] letting her know the name and age of your child so she can be sure our preschool children's church is well staffed. Thanks.

Thank you so much for your part in the mission to encourage women to carry their babies to term, and for families to gain positive parenting skills and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Come for a tour at the Center if you are in the neighborhood, at 1141 E. Union in Newark.
