Amelia Community Church

From our very first day, we have been committed to becoming a church planting church. We have felt that the model of the early church was to multiply communities and churches around the region and around the world. That has a nice sound to it, but what has God uniquely equipped us to do that perhaps would allow us to make a specific and tangible contribution to the church planting world? Well, it turns out that we …

Recommended Listening


I listen to music a lot. One of my primary means of expressing myself to God in worship is through music. At PCC, we strive to provide a variety of opportunities and styles for people to experience God on Sundays, and so I try to stay aware of as many different artists and songs as possible.
Often, folks will stop me in the hallway or email me and ask about a particular song or artist; sometimes, folks are just looking …

Recommended Reading

I read a lot. In fact, part of doing a good job for me means that I have to read. And I can’t just read books that I particularly enjoy or ones that I agree with or authors I like. I have to read various points of view, a variety of styles and genres. This helps me to see the world as it really is and not get boxed into one way of looking at …

At the end of Peter’s message in Acts 2, he calls those who have made a commitment to Christ to be baptized.

The Ethiopian Eunich in Acts 8

Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus in Acts 9

Cornelius in Acts …

Paying for our building

I mentioned in my letter that we were forming a team to organize the most effective strategy for raising money to build our building, while keeping ‘guilt and pressure’ off the table. If you are interested in serving there, please let me know. There are several ways that you could help and we need to get started right away. There will be a meeting of folks at my house on Wednesday, September 12. If you are interested in …

Welcome to the PCC Blog!

By now, you probably have received a long letter from me. I know I can be long winded, but there was much to say. I’m hoping that this blog will be one more tool that we can utilize to ensure that you stay better informed on a more regular basis.
One thing that you will want to know is that we may not respond to every single comment posted by folks to this blog, …
