Going to a new church can be an uncomfortable experience. So here is a quick overview of what you can expect when you’re a guest at PCF, we hope it makes you feel more comfortable.
First of all, we have guest parking in the front center lot. We want our guests to have the best parking spot available!
We have two services on Sunday mornings. 9:00AM and 11:00AM
Due to Covid-19 we are asking everyone to enter through the front doors while wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. If you forgot your mask or you don’t have one, we have free masks available at the Welcome Desk. Upon entering you will be greeted by an awesome volunteer who will be holding the door for you. You can use our hand sanitizer, and pick up your bulletin containing upcoming events & more information about our church at the Welcome Desk. All of our first time guests receive a free gift so make sure you let our welcome desk attendant know that it’s your first time at PCF! There will be an offering box on the Welcome Desk but if you are a guest, please do not feel obligated to give. Let our service be a gift to you.
Next, you can find a seat and take off your mask. You will notice that there are some rows that are marked off. This is because we are trying to maintain social distance. You are free to sit in any of our open rows but please be mindful of those who are not in your party. Prior to the beginning of the service there will be a countdown so you know when things will begin. The worship band will begin playing and everyone will stand and sing along. After the song, the worship leader will welcome everyone.
Following the welcome, the worship band will lead us in three more songs that are Christ-centered and relevant. The words are displayed on the screens and everyone is encouraged to sing along. Some people will clap their hands, raise their hands to God, or offer other biblical expressions of praise. Children are encouraged to participate as well.
Following worship, a pastor or someone on our Leadership Team will lead us in prayer, & announcements.
The nursery is available throughout the entire service. Children’s church for ages 3-6 & 7-11 is available during the sermon in each service. They will be dismissed after announcements. The 7-11 group will go to the gym behind the sanctuary, and the 3-6 group will check-in with their parents downstairs.
The sermon is next. We offer biblical preaching with real life application. Sermon points are displayed on the screens and a page to take your own notes is included in the bulletin. The sermons are also available on our website & wherever you listen to podcasts.
Our service lasts between 1hr 15min to 1hr 30min with a closing prayer. Following the service, please remember to put your mask on while exiting any of our exits.
For additional community, we offer Care Groups (small groups) during the week. In these small groups we will be discussing and studying the sermon that was just given. You can learn more about PCF’s Care Groups by clicking HERE.
We hope this has helped you know what to expect and we can’t wait to see you!
Now that you know what to expect, we hope you will feel at ease about being our guest sometime!
