Abide in Jesus

November 19, 2023 - November 21, 2023
Grand Rapids, MI

“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:4-5 ESV). 

Abide. It seems simple: not working, not doing, not planning, not preparing, not teaching, not preaching, not organizing, not leading … just abiding. Simple, yet hard. When was the last time you had the time or took the time to abide with Jesus—to be nourished, encouraged, forgiven, strengthened, and filled … by Him? During our PCWC ’23, we will abide … as we worship together, receive together, and laugh together. We will celebrate and challenge one another—not only in the sharing of new ideas for ministry, but sharing a way of being and doing life and ministry together in Jesus! It’s time to abide.

Call for Presenters submission form is available here: Call for Presenters.
