Engage - Junior High and High School Student Ministry
Posted 8.20.2014
Student ministries at PCC has recently been given a bit of a face lift; we have not only renamed the ministry “Engage,” but have been blessed with a few new leaders, a lot of vision, and some incredible times where we have seen amazing growth in our students.   But really, what is “Engage”?  Simply put, it is the name we have given for the entire ministry; both Junior High and High School fall underneath this umbrella.  Much like the ministries of old, we meet on Wednesday nights together at 6:30pm, either play games or “engage” each other in fellowship, have a time of great worship, and then break off into either Junior High or High School sermons.  Specifi...

Pray for Our Students As They Prepare for Summer Camp This Week!
Posted 8.13.2014
A staging area in gardening is a place where you, after removing the seedlings from the protection of a sun room, allow them to grow a bit more in a confined area that is generally protected from the wind. This is usually done before planting them in the ground. As we begin this year’s summer camp, we as a staff have this in mind with our students. Why? Because, starting in the fall, we have some amazing things planned for the students that we’ve never done here at PCC; this summer camp is setting the tone for the entire fall semester and we asked that you would pray earnestly for the Spirit of God to move in the hearts of the students. It is our staging area; our confined space where students can really be strengthened fo...

New Lighting for the Cross
Posted 8.08.2014
We are lighting the cross!  Hope you like the new LED treatment our cross is getting.  There is one more fixture to add, which will illumne the intricacy of our our steeple structurce.  Hopefully it can be a point of interest for those driving around the Hill -- and give you an excuse to tell someone the significance of the cross to our faith.  So, hope you like it.  It will be "on" each evening until 10 pm.  But remember, better to lift the cross us in our lives than just on the building -- so let it motivate you to do just that.  What a wonderful cross! ...
