When we came to PCC, I was simply following my parents to whatever church they were trying out. I’ve gone to church for most of my life—it’s something we’ve always done—but I never felt like I belonged. I felt too broken—like I had to have it all together in order for Jesus to love me. What I didn’t know at the time was that my heart was desperately searching for a relationship with God.
I remember the first service I attended. The people that greeted me at the door instantly felt like family. I didn’t feel judged. Brian Hughes was teaching about God’s unconditional, fatherly love and how He would stop at nothing to pursue us. It had never been presented to me the way that he described it, and I wanted to know more. I left there feeling like I finally had a place to call home.
Eleven years later, I still feel that same acceptance and love and I get to be a part of that same feeling for someone else who walks through those doors. PCC is reaching people and showing them the truth about Jesus: that He is love. Anyone who walks through our doors has a place here.
