I put out a 'cry for help' to our church and to those who are attached or connected to PCC in some way. It was a position our church had never been in before.
And people really came through. People faithfully gave in order for us to get out of the hole the snow had created, and I first want to just say 'thank you'. I'm just so grateful for what you did for our church and our mission.
I also want to encourage you to make a commitment to PCC, if you haven't done that already. Tithing is Biblical. It's the only place in the Bible when God tells us to test him (Malachi 3). He wants you to know that you can trust him with your life...and your money. He will be faithful to you. This is not a promise of riches, but of relationship. When we hold back, we rob ourselves of the blessing of a completely committed relationship with Him. We can only experience the fullness of life that Jesus promised us when we commit our whole lives to Him.
This is not a plea for you to sell your house, live in a tent and give the money to the church (unless you know that God is saying that to you, of course). In fact, this part isn't about the church...it's about you.
I encourage you to make your whole life a commitment to the One who committed His whole life to you. You might read Malachi 3:8-11, Genesis 14:18 and spend some time studying this subject.
Thanks for the trust you put into PCC. God is doing great things through us as we serve Him together!
