While Arizona is under Governor Ducey’s “Stay at Home” executive order, Phoenix Bible Church will not gather at 4002 N 18th Avenue. Instead, we will continue as the church of Christ while focusing on Living Room gatherings. You can invite your friends and neighbors, family and Community Group to join you to discuss on Zoom or other video calls.
If you are new to Phoenix Bible Church, we’d love to connect with you. Fill out our DIGITAL CONNECT CARD so we can send you a FREE GIFT and do our best to serve you during this unique season.
We will host engaging online liturgies for Good Friday and Easter Sunday on our website. We’ll depart from out typical Living Room format to have full video services including recorded scripture readings, music led by PBC Worship, video sermons from Pastor Tim and at-home communion. Details can be found at phoenixbiblechurch.com/EasterWeekend

Lead your PBC Living Room gathering in an opening prayer. If you’d like, you may use The Lord’s Prayer as your opening prayer.
9 Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
10 Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread,
12 and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Read Isaiah 7:4
4 And say to him, ‘Be careful, be quiet, do not fear, and do not let your heart be faint because of these two smoldering stumps of firebrands, at the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria and the son of Remaliah.
Watch the video message below. Open your bible to Isaiah 7:4 and if possible,
stream the video to your Living Room’s television. Once the video has ended, pray and respond during the final song.
Once the video message above has ended, take time during the next song to prayerfully respond to God.
Utilize the following questions with people in your household or over a Zoom call to further discuss and respond to the message.
(1) How have these unprecedented times effected your life personally? What obstacles have you been faced with? What opportunities have presented themselves?
(2) What unchanging truth have you clung to in these unprecedented times? Along with today’s passage from Isaiah 7:4, what scripture have you held onto?
We give as a church because giving is an essential part of our worship. In Matthew 6, Jesus says, “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. So, we invite you to joyfully give to the God who has given us everything.
The church continues beyond the walls of a building and between Sundays as well.
Here are some resources to help you continue to see Love Move in your life in a season of social distancing.
Between Sundays, we prioritize connectivity as a church. The main way we do this is through PBC Community Groups. We are focusing our typical in-person groups into Zoom Groups for the next few weeks. If you’re an active member of a Community Group, you should receive a meeting ID from your CG Leader. You can find out troubleshoot page for Zoom HERE.
Email email@example.com to learn more and get plugged into a CG Zoom Group.
Here’s some of the content you can expect:
– Bible studies on Instagram/Facebook Live
– Encouraging quotes on Instagram/Facebook Stories
– Relevant scripture on Instagram/Facebook Stories
– Community highlights as Instagram/Facebook Posts
– Prayer meetings led by PBC Leadership on IGTV
– Q&A with Pastor Tim, Elders and Staff
Between Sundays, make sure you’re signed up for Church Community Builder. We utilize CCB for weekly email communication which is vital when we’re not meeting in-person. This resource is especially important if you don’t utilize social media like Instagram.
Between Sundays, we encourage you to focus on the hope we have in Christ. Music is a helpful tool – especially while working. Use our PBC Playlists Songs of Hope and Sunday Songs to refocus during these changing times.
