Visiting a church for the first time can be uncomfortable, so we’re glad you’re considering it!
All Are Welcome
Before you come through the open doors you will pass two flags — a rainbow flag and a Black Lives Matter BLM flag. These symbolize our commitment to offering a warm welcome to all.
Depending on the time of year you will see a dozen or two dozen people gathered to worship. Each week others join via Zoom. Most people wear casual clothing –you are welcome to dress however you choose.
What to Expect
The sanctuary is air-conditioned and full of natural light. A bulletin provides the order of worship. Each Sunday the pastor reads (or tells) scripture and preaches a sermon based on that scripture. We celebrate communion around the Lord’s Table once a month, usually on the first Sunday. Worship is enriched by an altarpiece lovingly created by our Parish Associate, Rev. Beth McKinney. Music is provided by a grand piano or organ. We sing two or three hymns using the Chalice hymnal.
Children Are Welcome
In our nearly 100 years of existence, many generations of children have grown up at PCC. Church members love to welcome children and have a high tolerance for any disruption they might cause. A number of our lay leaders who are in their twenties grew up here. We are passionate about remaining a multi-generational community. Many people assume that children and adults will be in separate places on a Sunday morning, but faith is caught, rather than taught. Children learn to worship, sing and pray by participating in these activities.
We are in a transition period and do not currently provide nursery or Sunday School. Children are welcome to remain in worship and can color or read books. We have access to nursery facilities and will be quick to meet your needs as we are able. Feel free to communicate your needs here so that we can be ready to welcome you.
