PCC hosts the 3rd Annual Rise Together, a community Sunday. This year's focus was on providing gas cards for local families battling cancer. Our Scripture was Psalm 24, when King David asked, "Who can ascend the hill of the Lord?" and "Who is this King of Glory?" We answer those questions by showing it was the beautiful work of Jesus Christ. He is the King of the Glory, the Lord strong and mighty! He alone can ascend the hill of the Lord and when you and I are in Christ, we share in His work. We share in His accomplishments.
in other words, you and I cannot approach God on our own. We cannot be good enough. We must have the grace of God and His salvation in our lives.

We answer this and more with 1 Peter 1:13-15 as our text. We hope you enjoy this talk on God's holiness as we explore how we can learn who God is and what He expects from His Word.

God teaches Jonah difficult lessons in chapter 4. Sadly, Jonah did not care the people he was preaching repentance too. He wanted to see Nineveh destroyed.
Chapter 4 is about God's compassion for the lost. In the conclusion to the JONAH series, Pastor Chad breaks down each verse to show how God challenged Jonah. He essentially asked Jonah if his comfort was more important than God's compassion? If the material was more important than the spiritual?

The Bible is very transparent about people's lives. It reveals the good, the bad and the ugly.
Few had more set backs than Jacob. His very name means trickster and deceiver. In week two of the Altar Series, we look over several chapters of Genesis and trace the mistakes and poor decisions Jacob made for his life and his children.
To make matters worse for Jacob, he tried to build altars and worship God when he was clearly outside of God's will.
God wanted his family in Bethel and Jacob purchased land in Shechem. Jacob and his family paid a great price for disobeying God's will.
Walk through these chapters of Genesis as Pastor Chad passionately warns families to not live outside of God's will because the stakes are high for your children and grandchildren.

In Genesis 12, Abraham is brought to Canaan and he builds an altar of thanksgiving because God has fulfilled His promise in sending him to a land that would be his new home.
What we discover in Genesis 12 is why there is power in calling on the Name of the Lord. How Abraham built his altar before all the Canaanites and how we too are to build altars of God's faithfulness before the people around us.
We hope you enjoy week one of The Altar.
