This study will deepen our understanding of Jesus and help us to see him less as an iconic figure, and more as an intimate friend.

Time: Either 10:00 a.m. OR 5:30 p.m.
Place: 123 Arlington Avenue, Greenville SC

Request from United Ministries

United Ministries is a local ministry that PSBC has supported for many years. The pandemic has affected all of us in so many ways, and unfortunately, many have lost jobs and income and are struggling to feed themselves and their families. United    Ministries sent out this request for help:

“We thank you for all the support you’ve shown United Ministries and its participants in these uncertain times. These past few months we’ve seen an increase in individuals’ need for crisis services, a 300% increase in the need for food alone, and the demand hasn’t subsided. With higher demands, we’re always running low on supplies for our day shelter for the homeless, Place of Hope, and food for our food pantry.”

If you’re able, please help restock the food pantry! Contact United Ministries at 864-335-2613 or donate at 606 Pendleton St., Greenville SC 29601.

 
 

Kingdom Living

In our study of Kingdom Living in a COVID World, we have focused on developing personal convictions in disputable matters – those areas of life where we may disagree or seek to live out our Christianity differently.  Clearly, this does not pertain to areas where the Bible speaks, such as foundational doctrines, clear prohibitions or commands.  The essential teaching of Romans 14:1 – 15:7 is that we are to “welcome” one another, even when we hold different beliefs about some things.  Or, rather, especially when we hold different beliefs. It’s easy to welcome people who agree with us and share our convictions. It’s harder when we have to work through differences. 

While it seems that, in many ways, our world is more contentious than ever, I am grateful to be a part of a congregation that is “full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another.”  I pray that these passages remind us to continually walk in these great truths, and that “5 the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom. 15:5-6).

I look forward to seeing you Sunday!
Pastor Marty Price
