The Gospel Story

This foundational course is a 13-week overview of how the Gospel story began in Creation and moved in the lives of Abraham, Moses, the Judges, Kings, & Prophets over a 2000-year timeframe. The material is an online series of curated teachings by noted scholars. Participants will devote two hours per week, with guidance from instructors, discovering the Gospel truth in each week’s lesson. The class is meant to help us see the coherent story of Scriptures, and how our own stories of Christ’s redemption are told on all of its pages. The next class begins in May.

Day of Prayer and Fasting
May 6, 2021 from 8:00am - 7:00pm PDT
For the remainder of 2021, PCC will hold monthly days of prayer and fasting, engaging the ancient rhythms of regular times of prayer and fasting as a congregation, much like the early church practiced. (Acts 13:1ff.) These are not mandated by Scripture or by your church leaders here. Fasting should be freely engaged, as the Spirit leads you, not in any way to earn God’s favor or gain his attention, but because you have these things already, and because you want to know and enjoy him more deeply and find his wisdom and direction more clearly. Join in as the Lord leads you! These monthly spaces can connect us with God and each other as members of Christ’s body in beautiful, lasting ways, and can lead to renewed faith and repentance in Christ and new outbreaks of his kingdom blessing.
