Potluck social Wed 6pm @929, Special RH/GBV seminar 9/25 (RSVP for lunch), and more!

Dear PHCF,

Welcome back from the Labor Day holiday! David writes: Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. (Ps 20:6-7) May we, too, have this confidence in the saving power of our God - and rest confident in our identity as children of the Lord Most High. Praying that He is the source of your joy (and strength) on this second week of school!

Tomorrow, instead of our usual lunch meeting, we have a potluck dinner/social at 929 Apartments at 6pm!
Rachel Pinto would like to invite PHCF'ers for a potluck dinner (and hangout/dance party) next Wednesday. Midway through the second week of school, come get to know PHCF friends in a relaxed out-of-school setting! More details and RSVP here
