                                 than the giants you face

                                              1 John 4:4


Happy Sunday morning!  Miss seeing each and everyone of you! 
 As we begin another week of this pandemic, let us remember...

    We are safe, not because of the absence of danger, but because of The Presence of God.

I am going to try to share a video with you. Click here. Hope it works, cause it's a great video........We will Rise up

*Just realized after I posted, this is Saturday....the days seem to be running together. But the message remains the same :)

Note From Pastor

Hello Percival Community Church,

Just some quick thoughts on what we as a church family can do during this challenging and changing time.
Remember to pray for one another.
Pray for our National and Local leaders. Pray for Doctors, Nurses, Health Care workers, for schools, teachers, businesses, and communities.
Take time to call, text, or check on members of our congregation. Send a card or note of encouragement. Since most of our congregation is elderly,  check if they are able to be out and about, or if you might be able to pick up something needed such as groceries, and deliver it to them.
Make a donation to the local food bank.
Since worship services are not in place for awhile, if you would like to send your tithe offering, please mail to:

Remember the words of our Lord, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

In my thoughts and prayers,

Pastor Blaine Pritchett

Updates and Message


Letting everyone know, there will be no church service this Sunday, March 22nd or the following Sunday, March 29th. We will keep you posted with updates as these changes occur.  The Percival Pancake Breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for April 4th has also been cancelled.

Dear Friends and Church Family,

Anxiety and fear seem to be ever present with us as we have entered into this new year. Last year the flood weighed heavy on so many and now we are facing the uncharted territory of the Coronavirus outbreak. Just this morning I received the following message from my mom, " It was one year ago this morning that we were told to quickly evacuate from our home.  Now, a year later, we are told to not leave our home. The irony of it all."  

Life at times can be so overwhelming and daunting. The fear and anxiousness we feel can suddenly overtake us but we must remember who is ultimately in charge over all. Pray for His comfort and strength. Even apart we can still be there for each other, lifting each other up in prayer. With church doors shutting during this time we must remember that the church has never been about the building, but WE the people are the church.

At the end of the day, when your head hits the pillow feeling scared, fearful, isolated and full of anxiety, remember to.............


Peace, Hope and Love,

Mindy
