PCF Ministries“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various parts.” 1 Peter 4:10
We believe that ministering to our neighbors, both in the church and in our community, is a critical component of our faith. These ministries are some of the ways we do that at Pepperell Christian Fellowship. Please contact us for more information about these ministries and other opportunities to serve at PCF.
Adult Sunday School
Classes meet between Sunday services (10:00-10:45 am) from September through June. Classes are generally informal and interactive, are open to all adults, and may be joined at any time.
Presents special music at various times, especially during the Christmas and Easter seasons. Any child younger than 13 is welcome to participate. Rehearsals are held immediately after the 11:00 am service (about 12:15) and start about eight weeks before a performance.
Traditional choir presents special music, usually during the Christmas and Easter seasons.
Anyone who wants to sing is welcome to join; there is no requirement to read music. Rehearsals are held immediately after the 11:00 am service (about 12:15) and start about eight weeks before a performance.
Creative Arts & Communication
The primary work is to provide artistic and technical support for Sunday worship. Another major activity is providing dramatic and technical support for Vacation Bible School. Provides communication services, graphic designs, and technical assistance to other ministries as needed. There are openings for graphic artists, audio/visual technicians, photographers, dramatic performers, writers (mostly scripts and news articles), scenery and costume designers, and more.
The Board of Deacons is responsible for the physical oversight of the church and its assets. It oversees several ministries: Card Ministry, Finance, Mercy Ministry, Meals Ministry, Special Events, Facilities, and Ushers Ministry. Deacons are nominated by the Board of Elders and confirmed by the membership on the basis of the scriptural guidelines as put forward in 1 Timothy 3:1-13, Titus 1:6-9, 1 Peter 5:1-4 and Matthew 23:11. The number of deacons varies depending on needs of the church.Click here for more information.
Works under the guidance of the Deacons Ministry, helping with the maintenance and improvement of the physical plant, grounds and equipment, including repairs, construction, cleaning, and other related tasks. There are several opportunities for people to pitch in and help with repairs, yard work, cleaning, painting, and other similar work. Workdays are usually scheduled in the spring and fall, but help is needed throughout the year. Some of this work may require special skills, but much just requires willing hands.
Arriving about 15 minutes prior to the beginning of our worship service, the Greeters welcome those who come to worship by handing out bulletins and showing a friendly face. Greeting is a great way to begin serving within the body without being overwhelmed, as well as a great opportunity to meet the “old timers” and those new to the body.
Life Groups are relatively small groups meet weekly in area homes for support, encouragement, and spiritual development. See the Life Groups page for more information.
There is a men’s Bible study, a fellowship breakfast, and occasional special events. See the Men’s Fellowship page for more information.
Oversees missionary activities, including providing financial support to missionaries, publicizing missionary activities, and sponsoring missionary visits to PCF. Anyone interested in missions is welcome to join.
Provides child care during worship services and Sunday School. There is always a need for more helpers, both adult and youth (ages 12-17).
“Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found.” (Psalm 32:6a) We believe that God desires to make Himself manifest to his people by honoring His Word in answered prayer. We also believe that as we spend time in God’s Word we will be better able to understand his will and can then claim the promise of 1 John 5:14-15: “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of Him.” Prayer undergirds all that happens here at PCF. Come, and be a part of the team!
- Thursdays, 9:30 to 11 AM: A small group meets to pray at the church. li>
- Sundays, 10:00–10:45 AM: A small group meets during the Sunday School time. li>
- Email Prayer Chain and Sunday Bulletin: Requests are distributed to the prayer chain and also printed in the Sunday bulletin. The contacts are listed in the bulletin. li>
Precious times of prayer also take place within our ministries: Women’s, Men’s, Youth, Sunday school, etc. Additionally, Pastor Stephen and the Elders are available every week after the worship service for anyone who needs prayer.
Senior Drop-In Center

Provides for the Christian education of school-age children, pre-school through high school. Classes are held between the two Sunday services at 10:00am from September through June. Anyone interested in teaching Sunday School, or helping out as an assistant or substitute, should speak to the Sunday School coordinators (contact us for more information).
Vacation Bible School
Provides an educational and fun week-long program every summer for the children of PCF and the surrounding communities. Help is needed with teaching, food preparation, music, skits, scenery and props, games, crafts, cleaning, and more. There is something for everyone who wants to participate. Though this is a summer program, work starts early and help is often needed in early spring.
Bible studies on Tuesday mornings and evenings during the school year, and special events throughout the year. All women of the community are welcome to attend. See the Women’s Fellowship page for more information. Much help is needed to keep this ministry going: leading small groups, providing refreshments, setting up and cleaning up, supporting the ministry with prayer, and more.
