Shepherding groups are a time when the church breaks into smaller groups to meet together with one of the elders to share a meal, communicate, pray for one another, and get to know one another in a smaller setting. Shepherding groups meet on the first Sunday of the month at Noon either at the church or in the home of one of the group members. To join a group, speak with one of the elders.

In addition, three Bible/book studies were offered for women: When God Doesn't Fix It, by Laura Story (led by Ellen Bowlin); a study on the parables (led by Debbie Goodale and Amber Popovitch); and The Disciple-Making Parent (leading was shared).
PCC Teen Group
The PCC Teen Group is open to all 7 -12 grade students. The group will meet about every 2 weeks at the church. Regular meetings will last about two hours and include fellowship and activities for the first hour and a devotional message and prayer in the second hour. Special events may replace some of our regular meetings. We plan to make good use of the pavilion and fire pit as conditions allow. For more information contact Cory & Terri Christians.

Backyard Fellowships are held on Sunday evenings in the months of July and August, in place of our usual evening service.
Church members take turns hosting backyard barbeques. Grills are setup and people bring their own food to grill and a dish and/or dessert to share.
This informal evening of food and fellowship, followed by a time of devotions, singing, and prayer give the church an opportunity to get to know one another in a more relaxed setting.
