Astonished: Seeing & Hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Call

What does it mean to be called? We all want our lives to mean something. We all want the work that we do to make a difference. When we consider our calling, so often we think in terms of occupation. But in the Bible, our calling is not just about what we do. Our calling is about who we are as disciples of Jesus Christ. Join us this Sunday as we continue our sermon series through the Gospel of Mark and find out what it means to be called by Jesus.

Invite friends and family to worship online with us at 9:00 or 11:00 a.m. at pcpc.org/live/, the PCPC App with iOS or Android device, Facebook, Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku (search Park Cities Presbyterian), or Youtube.

Reserve Your Seat

For the safety of our community and in accordance with CDC guidelines for places of worship, the 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services at PCPC will be limited in capacity. We ask that you arrive early to allow for time to be seated before the service begins. As we assess the safety of our worshippers on a week to week basis, we have decided this Sunday to REQUIRE all attendees to wear masks or cloth face coverings over the nose and mouth while in the church building and maintain 6 feet of distance between parties. If you are uncomfortable with this, we understand and ask that you attend worship with us ONLINE. To help ensure we hold our worship services safely, we ask that you reserve a seat for you and your family – CLICK HERE.

We are excited to now offer limited childcare for ages 0-4. Our first priority is to offer a safe and healthy environment for your child. We are abiding by local, state, and federal guidelines for COVID-19. The screening of all volunteers, parents, and adults into the PCPC Childcare area will take place on Sunday morning prior to entry. Families, please access the childcare check-in area by using the ramp located on Wycliff Ave. You will reserve a spot for your child through the reservation system.

If you or anyone in your party have had any of the following in the past 7 days, we ask that you please worship with us ONLINE.
* Fever Over 100
* Cough or Sore Throat
* Shortness of Breath
* Contact with anyone confirmed to have COVID-19 (in the past 14 days)

Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him.


Middle & High School Small Groups

Small Groups are at the heart of our ministry because we believe that discipleship happens best in smaller contexts. They are an opportunity for students to build deep and lasting relationships with leaders and each other while applying Scripture to their lives. Separated by grade and gender, they meet at various times during the week at host homes. If your student is not currently in a small group and you would like them to join one, there are opportunities for each grade/gender to get connected. Please use the following guide to contact a staff member.

Fall Bible Studies

It’s not too late to join a Fall Bible Study! We are excited to announce we are all studying the miracles of Jesus. Women’s Bible studies will consolidate, meet on Wednesdays, and have a different teacher each week. Tuesday Men’s Bible study will be led by Paul Goebel and other godly men. We are also offering a new Couple’s Study on Wednesdays. The teachings will be posted on our church website along with a study guide. Small groups will meet virtually and off campus, as appropriate. A preschool program will be offered following the same passages you will study as adults! There is no fee for this study; registration is still open.

Fall Daily Prayer Guide

Our Fall Daily Prayer Guide theme is “Looking to Jesus”, and it runs from September 6 – November 28. Join us as we read through the Gospels of Mark, Matthew, and John. The daily Psalm readings pick up where our Summer Prayer Guide left off. We've made this Prayer Guide available through the PCPC app (download via Apple App Store or Google Play Store for free), so you can have access wherever you are throughout the day. We will not have physical books for this guide.
