With two more this week following the Lord into Baptism
and one more added Member
, PBC continues to grow despite declining finances.
We have an army of Soul winners
as approximately 55-75 people go out every Saturday morning to reach our neighbors with the Gospel.
We have three major programs geared to bring the kids to the Lord and to build them up in Christ.
first one is the Christmas Celebration in which we teach the children,
the true meaning of Christmas. We have contests and prizes, food and
games, we also give them clothes and toys. This year our contributions
were down so low but God used a man named Mark in Austalia with the help
of his friend Brad by having a fund raiser for us. because of that
anticipated money, we were able to use some other money to have the
celebration and then replace it when it arrived from Australia.
The second is the annual Vacation Bible School (April 8 – April 13) which
is a week of intensive biblical training using lessons, coloring,
puppet shows, crafts and a whole host of biblical aids. This strengthens
our present kids who attend the church and encourages new kids to come
back. Many children discover Jesus for the first time at VBS. The entire
VBS which includes the kit, training for five people and feeding the
kids all week with crafts—$250
If anyone would like to sponsor or help sponsor , your donations are appreciated.
Finally, our annual Camp for the Payatas Kids (April 22 April 26)
We have children who are first time visitors and repeat children. We
have seen many professions of faith which have bared out throughout the
years by them attending regularly. Our regulars get strengthened
spiritually and mentally as they go to conferences, play games, sports
& bible classes, swimming and a bunch of other good stuff!
know I have said this before but as for the new kids , many of them
might have never slept on a real bed before or ate 15 straight meals
without worry where the next one will come from.
Won’t you help? $30 per child gives them five days at camp, a PBC T shirt and transportation in an air conditioned bus.
