College students, thanks for checking out PCPC College Life! We would love to be your church home during your college years. We invite you to read below or click on the links to the left to see what’s going on.
COME REST. Life on campus can be busy and stressful. It’s easy to feel like you are defined by your latest performance in the classroom, on the field, or with your friends. In the midst of that, we want to offer a place of rest. In Matthew 11:28, Jesus says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” We want you to know and enjoy the rest and salvation that Jesus offers, and so we hope to encourage you to cultivate an abiding relationship with the Lord. If that sounds appealing, we invite you to start by coming to worship with us on Sunday mornings at PCPC (details below).
BE KNOWN. It’s possible on campus to be surrounded by people and feel all alone. We hope that PCPC will feel like a place where it’s OK not to be OK. The Christian life is much more of a “group project” than an individual assignment. So we want to help you find meaningful relationships with college students and other people around the church. Jesus commands us to love one another as he has loved us (John 13:34-35), and we hope finding community at PCPC will be another way to experience and share the love of Christ. This fall we are looking forward to college dinners and other events to build community.
GO SERVE. If we are resting in the Lord and living in community, we have a great foundation to go out and serve God’s purposes. Jesus reminds us that he did not come to be served, but to serve (Mark 10:45). The more we understand how he has served us, the more we are excited to serve him. Whether that’s on campus, around Dallas, or around the globe, we want to serve you and serve with you as you prepare for a life of service in God’s kingdom. PCPC has some amazing ministry partners in the city, and we look forward to regular opportunities to go serve.
Sunday Mornings - Worship at PCPC
We encourage you to join us for corporate worship at PCPC on Sundays. Services in the sanctuary are at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Most college students attend either the 9:30 or 11:00 a.m. services. If you’re visiting PCPC, please let us know so that we can meet you. We would love to go to lunch or connect with you during the week.
Tuesday Nights - SMU RUF Large Group
We partner with RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) at SMU. We would love to see you at SMU RUF large group on Tuesday nights for a time of fellowship, worship through song, and teaching. SMU RUF kicks off on August 23rd with an outdoor BBQ on campus.
On or Around Campus
We would love to grab coffee or a meal with you sometime this semester. Let us know your schedule, and we’ll figure something out.
