Every “CONCERN” in this world is an “OPPORTUNITY” to share God's love. For this reason each and every member of PFBC is pulling together to “HELP ONE ANOTHER AND THOSE AROUND US”.
We are committed to respond as best we can according to God’s Word,
As a People of Faith, we are urged not to Panic or be paralyzed by Fear.
(Isaiah 43:1 “Don't fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.” God actually commands us not to fear, or worry. The phrase “fear not” is used at least 80 times in the Bible, most likely because He knows the enemy uses fear to decrease our hope and limit our victories)
As a People of Faith, we are urged to not be Hopeless but rather to Have Faith in God.
"Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful." ... Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Philippians 4:13. "I can do all things through him who strengthens me."
No matter how frustrating, confusing, or scary this crisis gets, fear doesn't have the final say. 1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” Our hope is built on the perfect love of Jesus Christ, so we've been called to share that love with the world. And that's exactly what we'll be doing in the coming weeks and months as more and more people in our community are in need.
That's why, as a church family, we're responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis, not by panicking or hiding out of fear, but by serving the people who are most vulnerable.
