A Bit of History for PVCC…
This church first began in 1981 with Bill Moyer and his wife Julia beginning the work from his home. Bill was age 70 when he moved here to begin the church believing that it was not time to retire but time to start fresh. They served from 1981-84 then turned the work over to his younger brother Ron and his wife Ruth. Ron saw PVCC through the initial construction phase of the main auditorium in 1985 and was completed and ready for services on Easter Sunday 1987. Ron passed the reins to Gene and Carolyn Wands in 1989. Gene and his wife served until 2001, assisting the church with two more phases of building: the fellowship hall, offices & kitchen in 1990 and the final addition of the education wing in 1999. Gene and Carolyn welcomed our current pastor Matt Showalter and his wife Eileen in 2001.
Who will you find when you come? A family!
We have worked hard to create a blended congregation so that all ages feel welcome and have a place to participate. While ministries are extended to each age group, here you will find age is often just a number.
What is the focus of PVCC? Learn God’s Word!
If you are attracted by the teaching and study of God’s Word – then this is a place for you. Heavy emphasis is placed on the accurate teaching and preaching of the Bible no matter what group or age. Children’s classes begin at age 4 with our wee one being read Bible stories to start their learning trek. Teens use tablets and phones and are taught to how explore God’s word through Bible Apps like BibleGateway and YouVerson. Adults will find an in-depth Bible study on Wednesday night that is taught at a college level but easily understood by a beginner.
How would we sum up PVCC… Study, Share & Serve!
James 1:22 “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” We encourage everyone to learn and put into practice what they are studying. We offer many opportunities for individual and group service. Ministries exist to serve God’s purpose with over 85% of our family involved in serving from our Children’s ministry up to our Senior Adults. Do you have a talent or gift that you want to put into service for God’s kingdom? Then you will find both encouragement and opportunity to do so here at PVCC.
