Discipleship through Relationships

When Fred Rogers of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” fame accepted a lifetime achievement award in 1997, he used his time in the spotlight to redirect it onto the people in his life and in the lives of everyone in attendance who helped them become who they are. “All of us have special ones who have loved us into being,” Rogers said. “Would you just take along with me 10 seconds to think of the people who have helped you become who you are […]?” No person is an island — a universal truth, but one especially applicable when it comes to being a Christian. Join us as we resume our series on the PBCC Family Values with a reflection on our commitment to “Discipleship through Relationships”.


(Ephesians 1:3-14) The Bible is full of blessings – blessings expressed towards God and God’s blessings expressed towards his people. In the Old Testament God’s blessings revolved around divine presence, prosperity, health, fruitfulness, and long life. However, when we come to the New Testament, blessings shift from tangible things to being “in Christ.” How do you think of blessing? What are your expectations, hopes, and dreams for blessing? This Sunday we will explore the idea of blessing from Paul’s opening sentence in his letter to the Ephesians.

Devotion to the Word

Having planted our feet in our mission of “Knowing Jesus & Making Him Known”, we turn now to the primary way we receive this knowledge: Devotion to the Word. Many churches claim to be devoted to the Word of God — our own middle (ish) name is ‘Bible’ — but what does this look like in practice? How do we bring our whole selves in devotion to the Word of God? Join us for the second installment of our series on our PBCC Family Values!
