Ladies – YOU are invited to join us in a study of Titus 2:3-5 starting in September. Using True Woman 201: Divine Design, by Mary Kassian and Nancy DeMoss Wolgomuth as a guide, we will be taking a look at what exactly God’s Word says about being a woman, and applying it to womanhood in our day and culture. We have 12 more books available for $10 each! After these are gone the books will be $20. Please see Lisa Mundinger today, if you are interested in joining the class and purchasing a book. Don’t miss out!
Sunday in the Park – Plan to attend our Annual Sunday in the Park, today at the Central Park Plaza. We encourage you to start arriving at 5:30 p.m. so that you can eat and fellowship before we start the service around 6:00 p.m. PVBC will furnish the hog dogs and buns. Each family needs to bring their own table service, side dishes and drinks for your family, as well as lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. We will have fellowship time and singing, followed by a baptismal service. You are encouraged to invite your family and friends to join us for this outdoor service.
