Christian growth happens in Christian community. That’s why we provide many opportunities to connect with others at PCF. These small groups are our primary means of providing pastoral care and encouragement. Most of our ministry to one another and to our larger community occurs within these groups. Our goal is that every PCF member, in addition to regularly attending church on Sunday morning, will participate in a small group of some kind during the week.
Heart to Heart
Heart to Heart is on summer break and will resume in the fall.
Heart to Heart is a community Bible study for women, with groups meeting at two times: every Tuesday at 9am; and the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm. In both the morning and evening gatherings, women come together in small groups to study the Bible, pray together, and encourage one another. Childcare is provided on Tuesday mornings. (If school is called off or delayed for the North Middlesex school system, Heart to Heart does not meet.)
For more information contact Nancy Giordano by calling or emailing the church office.
Friday breakfasts are sometimes canceled during the summer, so it’s good to check with the office on meeting times.
There are various opportunities throughout the year for men to connect, such as breakfasts, hikes, and canoe trips. On a regular basis, some men meet most Friday mornings at 6am for breakfast and conversation at Charlotte’s (in downtown Pepperell). All are welcome to join this group. For more information, contact Ed Marino.
Life Groups are a network of mixed-gendered groups for both married couples and singles that meet in homes in Pepperell and surrounding towns. Meeting on various nights of the week, Life Groups provide opportunities to study the Bible, deepen friendships, and serve on mission together, reaching out to our local community. For more information, contact our Life Group coordinator Peter Schunemann.
Youth Group meets on Tuesday nights from 6:00 to 8:30pm. Teens in grades 7-12 are welcome to join us. This is a time for teens to meet with other teens, have fun together, and grow closer in their walks with God. For more information, contact Pastor Jeff Willett.
PCF hosts gatherings of Christianity Explored, a short course (seven weeks) for anyone interested in learning more about Christianity. To find out when our next Christianity Explored course will run, please contact Pastor Stephen Witmer.
The Christian life is an incredible adventure. It’s full of ups and downs, joys and sorrows, successes and failures. Church membership expresses our desire to live this adventure together with other Christian brothers and sisters as part of a loving, Jesus-centered community. Being a Jesus-centered community is an awesome privilege and a demanding commitment. By entering into a membership community with one another, we’re pursuing both the joy and the sacrifice of being involved in each other’s lives. We do this because we believe that the more deeply we love each other the more we will advance our mission of displaying the worth of God to the world.
