Upcoming Events!

PCC has two announcements regarding upcoming events in October!

Sunday, October 12th, we will NOT have an official service at the Chapel because of Fall Break, but PCC will be meeting unofficially in the Brennan Room. At 5 PM, we will be watching Veggie Tales, snacking, and relaxing before the semester picks back up again! Bring any snacks or drinks you’d like to share!

On Friday, October 24th, PCC will be having a Game Night in the Chapel! We’ll be playing games from Bananagrams to Mafia/Werewolf to anything else we can think of. Bring your favorite board games, a pack of cards, or anything that you’d like to play!

March Events After Spring Break!

As we pass the halfway point of the semester, PCC’s got a few events in March before a very busy April! Check them out below:

On March 22, PCC will have another Book Group discussion, this time on Orson Scott Card’s Speaker for the Dead. As usual, we’ll be meeting in the Brennan Room at noon. Please RSVP here on the Facebook event so we know how much pizza to order!

On March 26, in place of our usual Dinner Dialogue at 6 PM in the Brennan Room, we will be having Dr. Edward Wierenga, Chair of the Department of Religion and Classics at UR, give a lecture to any who are interested in attending. The lecture is titled “Divine Foreknowledge, Providence, and Human Free Will” and will include a question and answer period for all those who want to know more. RSVP here on Facebook!

Keep your eyes peeled for all of our upcoming April events!
