What's Happening??

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease, and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.

Missionary of the Month

Teen Challenge
I want to update you on what is happening at Happy Valley Womens and Childrens Center. This summer was interesting with the fires in our area. We were evacuated and because of air quality and uncertainty about the fire pattern our women stayed in another area for a few weeks. The fire did not come close to the women's center but a shift of wind was all that would have been needed to come close. We are extremely blessed to see all that the Lord is doing. I see miracles every day.

Bible Studies


Our Fall Bible Studies are beginning this month. It is never too late to start. We will have daytime and evening studies for Men, Women and Mixed. Pick up a Bible Study Brochure at the Guest Services Counter on Sundays or stop in the office Monday-Thursday between 9:00 & 4:00.

Spend time in the Bible with us here at PGCC!


Light and darkness. Chaos and peace. Life and death. These are just some of the conflicting themes in the birth of Christ, but one of the most confounding revelations of Christ's first coming is the humility in which he arrived and lived.

     He had everything in heaven: glory, wealth and power.
He could have chosen a variety of ways to deal with our sin and rebellion. With His unfathomable power, God could have destroyed our wickedness and sin. Or in His limitless creativity,
He could have started a new race - wiped the slate clean and began anew with a more commited and less flawed people. But peacefully, in the chaos, a greater power shone through the darkness - His love.

     In the midst of this depraved and desperate world, Hope was born. For a sinful and needy people, Perfection clothed itself in our broken flesh. On behalf of a rebellioius and underserving race, the God of the Ages, the highest authority and power in all of creation, humbled Himself in a manger amongst the poor and lowly.

     He did it for all of humanity. He did it for you. He did it because He is the very essence and source of love. The God of incomparable strength and power is the same God that lives in each and every one of HIs broken children.

     May the birth of our Savior shine into the deepest parts of our being this Advent season. May His love and sacrifice take root and flourish in the bedrock of our hearts. May we, too, in humility and compassion, carry His love into the world so that all may know that

Light has come.
