Music

worshipWe love music at PCC! We use hymnals from three different faith traditions to provide a wide range of spiritual songs, both familiar and unfamiliar. We form a choir for our annual December service of Lessons & Carols, and create vocal and instrumental ensembles for Easter. Students also have the opportunity to offer vocal or instrumental music during regular Sunday worship. 

Our Organist and Director of Music

PCC is fortunate to have the wonderfully-gifted Dr. Christopher Petit help lead us in worship every Sunday evening.

“I really like the opportunity PCC presents to learn new hymns from other denominations and sources besides my home church’s hymnal. This does not always go as planned, though! Some of my favorite PCC funny moments are the times when so few people in the congregation were familiar with a song that singing it became a complete train wreck and we all ended up laughing.”
