COVID-19 Update

PBC LIVING ROOM

Based on the latest recommendations from the CDC about not gathering with more than 10 people, we invite you to experience the Living Room version of Phoenix Bible Church each Sunday at 10am.


COMMUNITY GROUPS

Community remains a vital aspect of life at PBC, and in general as a follower of Jesus. We encourage you to experience  “DIGITAL GROUP” gatherings via platforms like Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facetime, Skype, and others. Here are a few creative, fun, and impactful ways to connect:

  • Play a board game together via video chat.
  • Share prayer requests, a playlist of your favorite worship songs, takeaways from the sermon, bible verses via GroupMe, Text and Social Media.
  • Hold a short discussion using the sermon questions with others through FaceTime or Skype.
  • Call a friend to discuss what God’s teaching you and pray together over the phone. 
  • Send a meal or care package (via services like Door Dash or Knack) to a person or family in your group, in our church, or in your neighborhood.
  •  

LOVE (CONTINUES TO) MOVE

While the methods may change, the mission remains the same. 

  1. Love Jesus. 
    God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, and love, and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7). Seasons such as this provide an excellent opportunity to rely upon Jesus through prayer and His word.
  2. Live Like Jesus. 
    While the world is stockpiling for themselves, we must continue to love and care for one another so the world will see that the gospel is the only way to accomplish true love and genuine community (John 13:35). As an example, check in daily with elderly neighbors, in case they need groceries, medicine, or other items. Send a text, make a phone call, or write a note to people in our church. See how they are doing, how you can pray for them, and just let them know you love them.
  3. Lead Others to Jesus. 
    In times of crisis, the church has historically seen great opportunities for gospel witness. Share the Living Room version of Phoenix Bible Church: https://phoenixbiblechurch.com/livingroom/ via social media, email, or text. Pray for God to open doors for you to share your faith. 

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Looking for ways to make a difference during this unprecedented time?
Here’s a list of things we’d encourage you to do to help Love Move in Central Phoenix.

Give Blood
There is a critical need for Blood and Platelets in this time. Head to the Red Cross Website to learn more about donating blood and donation locations. 

Love Our Neighbors at Phx Christian School
There are around 500 faculty + families right across the street from us at Phx Christan School. We are in the process of finding out the best ways to serve their families in need and will keep you posted. Email info@phoenixbiblechurch.com with any questions.

Sew Masks
Consider sewing masks for people who may need them.
You can find instructions to sew masks HERE.
You can find information for donating masks HERE.
Reach out to our PBC Kids Director Sarah Johnson if you have any questions.

St Mary’s Food Bank
Our food banks are being quickly depleted because of the massive demand. 
Consider reaching out to St Mary’s to volunteer time or donate food.

Support Local Restaurants
Arizona restaurants have been hit hard from social distancing regulations.
Support your favorite local spots in Central Phoenix by ordering take-out or delivery.
Make it special by having it on a specific night of the week (e.g. Friday Night Date Night)

Gift Card Drop Off
Purchase a grocery story gift card from Fry’s or Trader Joe’s and drop it off at someone’s house who needs it. Make it special and leave flowers too (or Lysol wipes).

Online Giving + Benevolence Fund
If you are a part of Phoenix Bible Church, the mission still relies on your generous financial support. If you haven’t already, consider moving your giving online. You can GIVE ONLINE HERE. In addition, consider offering to help or asking for help through our Benevolence Fund. Email info@phoenixbiblechurch.com for next steps.

Thank you so much for loving, living, and leading. While these days may feel dark, the love of Jesus Christ shines brighter than ever, and it does so through you.
