Good morning and welcome to our worship service. A special welcome to our guests. Let us know if you have any questions about what we are all about.
This Friday was our last Lady Jacket Breakfast for the school year. These breakfasts are a cooperative effort with DISD to encourage our female athletes and match them up with community mentors. PACOC provides several volunteers to make these breakfasts happen and we are grateful for our cooks, dishwashers, and cleanup crew. We serve approximately 100 students, coaches, and mentors. Another way we are investing in our community. We are For Texoma!
Our Grace Offering is Sunday, April 9. Our financial goal is $156,100, almost 8 times our weekly budget. Please be prayerful about how you can support the outreach ministries of PACOC. The Grace Offering kicks off the week before Easter on Sunday, April 2 as Daisy’s Little Red Wagon makes its annual appearance for our children’s coin collection. This year we have been able to add two new mission points in Colombia and Monterrey. Be on the lookout for more details in the weeks to come.
This summer we have two opportunities for you to participate in mission trips—one to Casa de la Esperanza in Mexico and another to Togo, West Africa. Spaces are limited, so contact the church office soon for information. Some of the expense for these trips is offset by our Grace Offering. Additional financial assistance is available. These trips are great ways to spread the good news, serve others, and connect with PACOC members.
