• What do you believe about God, Jesus, the Bible, and life?
The absolute best way to understand and learn about any community is to experience it. Statements of faith can tell you what a community beliefs are, but they can’t tell you who they are. If you’d like to discover who we are at Peninsula, please come to one of our services on Sundays and talk to people. To check out our spirit of service and get involved click here. We also encourage you to meet people in a more informal setting through our Bible studies or community groups.
If you are unable to make it to PCC anytime soon, you can listen to a sermon here.
• How often do you have communion? Who is welcome to participate?
We serve communion the first Sunday of each month. Anyone who has given his or her life to Jesus Christ is welcome to participate in Communion whether you are a member, regular attender, or guest at Peninsula.
• Is there a pastor or counselor I can talk to?
Whether you have a one-time need or are looking for ongoing counseling, PCC is here to help. We always have a Pastor-On-Call available to advise and listen. We can also refer professional counselors if desired. You can call our office at 310.377.4661 or click here to send us a message.
