Last update of the year

16 December 2021

Wow!  We have come to the last update of the year. And what a year it has been!

We have come together as a faith community and celebrated.  We have come together as a faith community and lamented. And even as we acknowledge the current Covid-19 Protection Framework doesn’t provide us the ability to come together in the same ways, what I love about the people here at PBC is the care and concern voiced about this.  I hear little of the fear and accusations littered throughout our press and much of the love and problem solving which aims to find new creative solutions to make sure all are continuing on our faith journey until we can meet together once again.

As we continue our worship of God – Father, Son and Spirit this advent season, our ability to navigate these changes is a chance to bring a modern-day advent message of hope, peace, joy and love!
Adam and I are deeply thankful we are able to experience these things which the Spirit gifts to us all this Christmas!


A reminder Sunday is a vaccine certificate required gathering.
