COVID Update December 9, 2020
Dear PBCC Family,
As you all know, Santa Clara County has adopted the State’s Regional Stay at Home order, which is currently scheduled to end on January 4, 2021. The virus numbers are spiking in our county which is straining hospitals and medical staff. And, although we long to be with you all and are permitted to hold outdoor services for 100 people, the leadership at PBCC has decided to cancel all outdoor services through at least January 10, 2021. We believe this is the best way to show love to everyone during this pandemic. This decision does not affect our livestream service. The livestream service will continue each Sunday at 8:30. Note that we will also be streaming our Christmas Eve services on Christmas Eve, both the family service (4 pm) and the Lessons and Carols service (7 pm).
Once again, if you need help during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out. If you are involved in a small group at PBCC, we are encouraging you to first reach out to your small group leader. If you not involved in a small group or cannot get in touch with your small group leader, please feel free to contact our team of deacons by e-mail at deacons@PBCC.org, or by leaving a voicemail at 408-366-6693. You can also email one of the pastors as well.
Lastly, know that the PBCC leadership is praying for you. We know this has been a difficult nine months, filled with separation from loved ones, disruption of daily routines, and many suffering the loss of loved ones without the physical love and support of their church family. We pray for grace and peace, and for comfort and hope during this season where we remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus, the light of the world. Our God has not abandoned us but has given himself to us! “Gloria in excelsis deo!” And, if you drive by the church at night, you’ll see this represented in the star shining on the cross above PBCC (thanks Al!).
Blessings to you all, and we’ll see you online this Sunday.
