Some friends and I are hoping to go to Potomac tomorrow and we still need a ride for one more person. Would anyone be available to pick up a student or two from Patrick Henry College?
Dear Church Family, I just created a Sign Up Genius of a few things needed for the Bahamas missions trip which may be purchased easily in town. Another Amazon list is forthcoming. Many thanks to everyone!
A way to help Houston!: "Tuscarora High School wants to make a meaningful contributuion to the Texas area as they still deal with the devastation from Hurricane Harvey, We are asking for your help in sending in baby food, wipes, diapers, clothing, formula etc. for our ALL THINGS BABY DRIVE this week. We will be collecting all week and plan to get the items mailed out early next week. Please imagine losing everything and you have babies to care for... All items can be dropped off in the main office or the box right outside the main office. Thank you in advance for helping our students connect with an audience outside of our community." If you would like to contribute, and dropping items off at the church office would be easier, I would be happy to collect through Thursday and bring all items to the school Friday. Thanks!

A Call for a Day of Prayer and Fasting – Good Friday, April 10, 2020

The Call: For all believers in Christ in the Presbyterian Church of America (PCA), the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC) and the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) to set aside Good Friday, April 10, as a day of prayer and fasting to cry out for God’s help in addition to a Holy Day of worship.

The whole world is in the throes of a coronavirus pandemic that is spreading death, illness, economic turmoil, unemployment, isolation, panic, and fear. In such desperate times, the people of God should humble themselves and pray to their Almighty God for His grace, mercy, and love to heal us, restore us, and relieve us from this crushing burden of disease.

In response to the ravages of this historic plague, this call for prayer and fasting is an historic, ecumenical event because the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC) Third Millennium Ministries (3MM) and the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA) have united for the first time to share prayer resources and fast in order to pray for God’s mercy and healing.

How the World Worshipped on One of the Most Unusual Sundays in Church History - Tim Challies

Take a look at these pictures of Christians worshiping in their homes in Singapore, South Korea, India, Ukraine, Ethiopia, Norway, Mexico, and the US on one of the most unusual Sundays in church history. Show your children all the children around the world worshiping with their families (especially the young one climbing upside down on the side of the sofa 😂 ). This is a great reminder that the "visible church" is universal (not confined to one nation), and it consists of all those throughout the world that profess the true religion, and their children: the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ, the house and family of God, out of which there is no ordinary possibility of salvation. (Westminster Confession of Faith 25:2)

From Paul David Tripp.

I am safe,
not because I have no
trouble,
or because I never experience danger.
I am safe,
not because people affirm
me,
or my plans always
work out.
I am safe,
not because I am immune from disease,
or free of the potential for poverty.
I am safe,
not because I am protected from disappointment,
or separated from this
fallen world.
I am safe,
not because I am
wise
or strong.
I am safe,
not because I deserve
comfort or have earned my
ease.
I am safe,
not because of
money,
or power,
or position,
or intellect,
or who I know,
or where I live.
I am safe because of the glorious
mystery of
grace.
I am safe because of the presence of
boundless love.
I am safe because of
divine mercy,
divine wisdom,
divine power,
and divine grace.
I am safe,
not because I never face
danger,
but because you are
with me in it.
You have not given me
a ticket out of danger.
You have not promised me
a life of ease.
You have chosen to place me in
a fallen world.
I am safe
because you have given me
the one thing
that is the
only thing
that will ever keep me safe.
You have given me
you.

Regular worship is cancelled this Sunday, 4/12. Please worship with us from your home @ 10:30am Sunday. Worship materials will be posted on our website, potomachills.org, on Saturday night.

PHPC March 15th 2020 Sermon

If you are looking for a way to worship while avoiding crowds, you can join Potomac Hills today meeting as a church distributed. Here's this morning's sermon from Mark 8:31- 9:1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oUfGrJGIOE

31 And He [Jesus] began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And He said this plainly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. 33 But turning and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.” 34 And calling the crowd to Him with HIs disciples, He said to them, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. 35 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? 37 For what can a man give in return for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” 9.1 And He said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.”

General information

We have witnessed God multiply the fruits of the ministry at Potomac Hills in remarkable ways. The Lord has accomplished so much in our midst that seemed nearly impossible ten years ago. In the short history of Potomac Hills, we have seen both our church and community change dramatically. Loudoun County continues to see dramatic population growth accompanied by greater ethnic diversity, yet it is one of the more unchurched places in America with only 42% of the population claiming any religious affiliation. Through all of these changes, God has blessed our church because of our willingness to worship and follow Him. As we move forward, we hope to see our ministries grow in amazing ways to reach the lost and hurting in Loudoun County. Our response to this changing community is to multiply the ministries of Potomac Hills to serve the Lord and seek the lost. This requires us to consider new facilities, new staff, and new ministries that God will use to glorify Himself. We can’t wait to see what the Lord will do! First, we want to be reminded of God's faithfulness to us in the past. Through the Gospel of grace, the Lord has brought new converts, rendered astonishing changes in people's lives and extended the outreach of Christ in our community and across the globe. We have seen many people come to Potomac Hills recently and we want to share our story with them. Second, we want to better appropriate God's love, grace and mercy to us in the present. By taking a coordinated approach to the sermon series and our community group study guides, we want to take focused time - together as a church family - to encourage spiritual growth. Third, we want to exercise great hope in what God will do in our future. As our congregation grows, we will need greater resources to continue doing what God has called us to do. New opportunities will require more people (both staff and volunteers) and larger facilities in order to accommodate our growth and desire to meet regularly outside of Sunday morning worship.
