Our mission is to provide refugee families with the education, help, and resources (food, clothing, furniture, household goods, etc.) that they so desperately need. We are passionate about providing a bright future for refugee children and believe a true education leads to that future. We use philanthropy to provide tuition for refugee children to attend a private SDA school where they can grow academically and in a relationship with Christ.
Today we welcome Tim Cross, Family Life Pastor of the Collegedale Church. Tim is passionate about helping people live for Jesus forever—especially young people! He leads the church’s marriage ministry, men’s ministry, and in partnership with our children and youth pastors, our church’s parenting ministry.
Women’s Ministry offers our church family a space for growing the spiritual health of women from childhood to seniors. Today we get to highlight the passion and love our women have in Jesus Christ..

What is the purpose of the church? This is a question I have thought of before and as I reflect, I realize that the question should be stated, what is the purpose of our church or better yet, What is the purpose of our PTC SDA church? To find the answer to this question we are required to dive deeper within and find the core of what makes us who we are. Because in order for our church to continue its existence, we must find what is the energy behind what we do and what makes us unique.

“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” – Ephesians 1:5
Jefferson Bethke writes, “There are a few states in the United States that have adoption laws and protections specifically for kids who’ve been adopted and their adoptive parent dies. When a parent writes a will, they can later on write their biological child out of the will, but if it’s an adopted child, they cannot. The state actually gives more protection and security to the adopted child. This is a beautiful picture of us with God.”

“This chapter (of Daniel) teaches that while human beings are often ignorant and afraid of what may come, God knows, reveals, and holds the future.”
