Foretold - PCO Image

Current Message Series


When we approach the story of scripture, we often look to the New Testament for the story of Jesus. However, the entire Bible shares the story of Jesus and God’s plan to reconcile everything through him. Join us this weekend as we continue our Lenten message series entitled "Foretold: Jesus throughout the Bible."

Race and the Gospel


RESOURCE FROM PASTOR BRIAN TALTY'S MESSAGE FROM FEBRUARY 14

Listen and grow in your understanding and ability to be a part of racial reconciliation. In this five-part series entitled Race and the Gospel, pastors Bryan Loritts and Matt Chandler use Paul’s words in Ephesians to address race, racism, and injustice. Through teaching and honest dialogues, Bryan and Matt will unpack the hard truths about America’s racial past and present and suggest a pathway forward of healing, justice, and hope for multiethnic harmony in the church.

NLPC Bottles - PCO Image

NLPC Baby Bottle Campaign


We value life. That's why in January we handed out baby bottles for New Life Pregnancy Center's Baby Bottle campaign (if you didn't get a chance to grab one, extras are available at the Welcome Center or church office). New Life Pregnancy Center offers compassionate support to women and men facing unplanned pregnancies, before and after baby's arrival. Fill the bottle with change and return to the church by March 7. You can either drop off your baby bottle at the Welcome Center on the weekends or at the church office M-Th 8:30am-5pm and Fri 8:30am-noon. If you attend church online, you can still participate in NLPC's Baby Bottle campaign by making an online donation below. Thank you for supporting the ministry of New Life Pregnancy Center!
