Transforming Our Church, Reaching Our Community
This is a two-year ministry expansion project in response to God’s call upon us to bring the gospel to the center of our life together as a church, and to live with such a vibrant gospel witness that we become central to our community and region.
What’s our goal for our building project?
Welcoming in, sending out
To achieve our vision, we believe we must grow as a church in two key ways: (1) Welcoming the many visitors who are coming to us; (2) Equipping, encouraging, and sending out our people on everyday gospel mission to the places we live and work.

Imagine you’re a first-time visitor to PCF. It’s difficult to find the church and even harder to figure out where to go once you’re in the building! We need to grow in welcoming our guests. Additionally, our growing congregation needs more and improved sanctuary and educational space. Our building project will help us with these needs: - A new steeple in front will communicate to Pepperell who and where we are. - A new main entrance and enlarged foyer linking our two buildings will make clear to visitors where to enter the building, and allow us to better greet them when they do. - An enlarged sanctuary and renovation of the first floor of the front building will provide greatly improved educational and gathering space for our growing congregation.
What are we asking for?
Our goal is $850k. That’s large enough to stretch and challenge us, but it’s not too big for God! Our goal will challenge every member to grow in faith as we reach the next level of God-pleasing generosity and stewardship. ‘Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also’ (Luke 12.34). Achieving this goal together will serve as a testimony to Pepperell and prepare us for greater Kingdom impact as a church, as we see more people drawn into relationship with Christ, and our people built up and discipled.

What’s our ultimate aim?
Linking our buildings will transform how we use them. We’ll use our front building much more often, because it will now be an inviting, welcoming, seamlessly connected space. This will increase our visibility in Pepperell, as people in the community see life and activity in our buildings. Rather than being hidden by the front building, we’ll be using it to encourage, equip, and send our people on everyday gospel mission for Jesus.

Our ultimate goal for Building a Vision goes way beyond a nice building. Our goal is changed lives in our own gospel community of PCF, and in our larger community and region, to the glory of God.
