Pastor's Weekly Visit

Dear Pittsford Community Church Family,

I hope that our spring weather has put a spring in your step. Even better is the joy we can have in knowing that Jesus cares for us. It’s nice to see more people returning to in-person worship while our livestream remains strong. Quick reminder, Pastor Chris begins his 3-month sabbatical (and our shared 3-month prayer effort for him) on May 1, just around the corner. And one more quick item—please check out the announcement (below) about a podcast on which I was recently interviewed—Kitchen Table Theology. Thanks.

Pastor Dana

P.S.— Take a moment to listen to this week’s Pastoral Visit video on feeling lost.


Kitchen Table Theology

Pastor Dana was recently interviewed by Pastor Jeff Cranston (Low Country Community Church, South Carolina) for an episode of his outstanding podcast about the importance of theology for everyday Christians. Check it out on YouTube: https://youtu.be/y2ylKEq3vi4 or audio at https://www.buzzsprout.com/1011436/8300314. Consider following this podcast regularly for your own spiritual enrichment.

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).

April Community Outreach: E-Waste Collection

Church Family we need your help for this COR- Saturday 4/17 from 9:00 AM- 1:00 PM and Monday 4/19 from 4-7:00 PM PCC will be collecting E-Waste.

CARE PACKAGE INITIATIVE - Commissioned with prayer Sunday, April 18th

Praise the Lord! Our Care Package Initiative seeks to show appreciation for our medical community for sacrifices they have made and continue to make during these trying times. The initiative also supports local area business hurt by the pandemic. Join us in services on Sunday, 4/18 to dedicate over 130 Care Packages being distributed the following week. Thank you for your love and generosity in this initiative. God continues to amaze!

May Day is Play Day at PCC!
