40 Days of Purpose Campaign started

Peninsula Christian Center in Soldotna began a 40 Days of Purpose Campaign Oct. 9. The program is a worldwide effort involving an estimated 13,000 churches from 60 denominations. The center of the campaign is a book called "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren, senior pastor at one of the country's largest churches, Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif.

During its campaign, the center is presenting God's five purposes for people worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry and evangelism through a weekly message by the pastor, a personal or family daily devotional reading, a weekly Scripture verse that everyone memorizes, a weekly small group lesson and a daily e-mail of encouragement.
