Astonished: Seeing & Hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Desperation, Faith, and Feet

As we return to our journey through the Gospel of Mark, we find Jesus once again crossing the Sea of Galilee, only to be greeted by a large crowd. In the midst of this pressing crowd, two individuals approach Jesus out of desperation. Their approaches to Jesus are as different as their stories, but they do have two things in common—desperation and faith. Let’s watch how Jesus responds to their acute and chronic needs and see how we, too, must bring our own desperation before the feet of our living Savior.

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

Thank you for your continued help in keeping our Worship Services safe for our church family and community. We are excited to begin opening reservations on Monday mornings at 7:00 a.m. We do ask that you continue to arrive early, wear a mask/face covering while in the building, and maintain 6 feet of distance between parties. It is so good to gather each week and worship! Please reserve your seat at pcpc.org/reserve-seat/.

If you have experienced any COVID-like symptoms in the past 7 days or are uncomfortable with our safety protocols, we ask that you continue to worship with us online at pcpc.org/live/.


We are excited to offer childcare on Sunday mornings at both the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. hours! Childcare is for ages 3 months to 4 years-old. Since spots are limited, registration is required each week to reserve your child’s spot.

Entry into the childcare area on Sunday mornings is at the Wycliff entrance. Due to COVID-19, temperature checks are performed on anyone entering the area and all adults must wear a facemask. To register for childcare and to read about the precautionary measures we are taking to ensure a safe, healthy environment for our kids and volunteers, go to pcpc.org/reserve-seat.

And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him, and he was beside the sea.


The King's Stories

Spring Bible Studies

For the 2021 spring semester, we are excited to again offer virtual Bible studies. Women’s classes will be available on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Our Kids Ministry has developed a special series for our children as they too hear Jesus’ stories. And PCPC Men will meet virtually on Tuesday mornings. Online groups can meet throughout the week.

We are excited to see what God will do in and through each of us as we study these selected parables of Jesus. We pray that this spring’s study will result in greater unity in Christ and love for one another as we learn more about Jesus through the stories of our King.

The semester begins in February. Registration is open.
