“Amazing!” That’s the word we have used over and over again to describe last Sunday’s launch of PC3 New Bern. It’s amazing that in less than 2 weeks God provided a venue, equipment, resources, and enough manpower to launch a campus of Port City Community Church. Yet while these things may seem amazing to us we are reminded that we serve an all-powerful, amazing God-to Him, this is all just a part of his plan!
Our volunteers showed up at New Bern High School Sunday morning @ 6am to unload trucks and trailers, and by 8:45 we were ready to go! The level of excitement and anticipation was unlike anything I’ve ever seen-the atmosphere was electric! And during the Welcome segment of our adult worship gathering, when I said, “Welcome to Port City Church New Bern!” our people erupted with applause and cheering.
It was an incredible first day at PC3 New Bern as we gathered for worship, and engaged children in Grow Zone and Treasure Island. Sunday night was just as amazing as we saw a great turn-out of students and volunteers for “The Drop”, our Middle and High School student gathering.
We are excited about the days ahead! December is going to be an amazing month in the life of PC3 New Bern. We’re looking forward to our family ministries production, “Jingle Jam”, which will take place on December 19th, and we’re super excited about celebrating our very first Christmas Eve service as a campus.
Above everything else, we are constantly reminded of God’s faithfulness as He continually calls us to follow Him by faith…not by sight. Thank you so much for continuing to pray for all of the campuses of Port City Community Church as we reach people and help them walk with God. It’s an honor to be a part of God’s story as he continues to write it on the hearts of our city, region, and world.
