Like every year at PC Church, we have lots of creative opportunities for you and your family to serve. Isn't that the whole reason for this entire season anyways? Jesus came in human form, not to be served, but TO serve. So as Christ-Followers, that's what we want to do! We also have lots of fun things planned for your family to experiecBefore you make plans with friends, family, work, Santa...etc. make sure you mark a few important dates!
OCC SHOEBOX TIME!
Step 1: Grab a shoebox (or a box that we'll be providing), stuff it with toys, toiletries, crafts, and other fun stuff.
Step 2: Add $7 for shipping or pay online to track your box: follow this link
Step 3: Bring it to church on November 20th and pray over your box.
You can then see where in the world your box was shipped, and know that a very special child in need will have a great Christmas this year!

Def: The arrival of a notable person (JESUS)
We celebrate Advent from November 27 until Christmas Day. It's the anticipation of Jesus' arrival. We light a candle on each Sunday leading up to His birthdate. The candles represent HOPE, PEACE, JOY, LOVE, and the candle in the center represents CHRIST. This year we have some creative drama sketches planned to help illustrate what each of these weeks mean. You won't want to miss this fun Advent season!
"The Innkeeper's Dilemma"
Of course we're doing our annual Christmas Production!
Be here on December 18th at the 9a or 11a service for a dramatic, fun, and comedic play! We like to do things out of the box; a little different because we're unique. This isn't your grandma's old boring nativity play... we like to have FUN and not take ourselves too seriously. We have a exciting message to spread, so why dull it down and make it seem boring! God coming to earth as a human is pretty exciting!
We're back to ROCK
Our PC house band "Amplified" is playing at the Mission Inn Festival Of Lights again! Come downtown and listen to some rockin' Christmas music, classic rock music, and our church favorites! It'll be a pretty good and diverse set. We had a huge crowd last year and it was a blast!
The date hasn't been decided yet, so keep an ear out!
Christmas Eve Dinner
Last year was our first adventure in serving a formal dinner for those in need. We thought it was a success! The people who were able to serve last year were just glowing with joy. It was unlike anything we've done! People gave food, cooked, set up, served, hosted, and enjoyed the company of our guests. We're excited to do the same thing this year! RSVP's for guests begin on November 17th, so if you know of anyone who could use a brighter holiday, invite them!
Sign ups to bring food and serve begin on Sunday, November 27th!
Spots will be limited this year and will go fast!
CHRISTMAS IS ON SUNDAY???
That's right! December 25th falls on a Sunday!!!
Here's how we see it: CHRISTmas is about CHRIST. Sundays are about CHRIST.
And CHRIST is about the Church.
So what better way to celebrate Christmas than at church!
We'll only be having ONE SERVICE at 10am (1hr long).
We picked 10a so that your little ones who wake up at 5am awaiting their gifts will have time to open gifts, eat breakfast, and then head to church. You'll be out at 11a with time to make it to the next Christmas function/meal. Bring the whole family for an interactive, rustic, in-the-round acoustic service.
