Your spiritual growth, which begins with your personal time with the Lord, should always be your highest priority in life. Scripture is clear that a private time with the Lord is vital (Matt. 6:6). We encourage you to find a quiet place to be alone with the Lord, whether in your room or in the residence hall prayer rooms.
Church and chapel services reflect the heart of PCC and show respect for God and His Word. In keeping with the reverent spirit of church services, Sunday morning Bible studies, and chapel, remember to bring your Bible and be attentive. Keep your cell phone on silent and out of sight once the service begins. Talking, sleeping, studying, or bringing food or beverages is not appropriate.
Campus Church provides a church home for you to worship and serve the Lord. Students attend Campus Church meetings including Sunday school and Sun. morning, Sun. evening, and Wed. evening services. Sunday school classes are divided by academic classification and gender until junior and senior years, when students may choose a coed class to attend.
Permanent residents of the Pensacola area who previous to enrollment are already established in another church may request an exemption through the Student Life Office.
Chapel provides another opportunity for spiritual growth and a time when the college family can meet together to learn from God’s Word. Guests are welcome to join us in chapel services every Mon., Tues., Thurs., and Fri.
Seating for chapel is assigned. If you would like to sit with your own immediate visiting family or current pastor/youth pastor, please sign in with them with the host at the main Atrium desk. Ushers will direct you and your guests to the guest row on the main floor or the balcony.
If you are assigned to work or class during chapel, you must allow time in your schedule (12 noon, 4 p.m., or 5 p.m.) to attend video chapel the same day.
You may volunteer to minister through various Christian Service ministries, including Bible clubs, juvenile detention, personal evangelism, nursing homes, and special needs outreach. The Christian Service Expo at the beginning of each semester showcases each Christian service and encourages you to be involved.
Mission Prayer Band is a voluntary student group that meets weekly to pray for and learn more about mission fields. Visiting missionaries and mission board representatives encourage students to consider mission work, summer mission trips, and prayer needs of missionaries.
Brief prayer times with three or four rooms in your residence hall are set aside on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 10:30 p.m. Occasionally, hall meetings will take the place of prayer group. Students will be notified of these changes on Campus Connection.
