Why are Connection Groups important at PCC?
Since we are all a part of the Body of Christ, fellowship is important for every believer. At PCC, we have a variety of small groups in which to get involved. Some may be for friendship and others for discipleship, but they are all designed just for you. The small groups at PCC are divided into three categories. They include: Adult Connection Groups, Children/Youth Connection Groups and Outreach Connection Groups. So go ahead–check them out, and get connected!
Our Vision:We envision you in a “Connection Group” where you can be fully devoted to Jesus Christ. It is here that you will grow spiritually, connect with friends, and have an opportunity to serve others.
Our Mission: Our mission is to help people connect to God, connect to one another and connect to the world.
