Worship Schedule

9:45 am Worship

For people of all ages, our 9:45 am service runs concurrently with church school.  Children and youth (K-8) join us for the first 15 minutes of the service; younger children go directly to their classes.  A variety of musical offerings are provided by the Chancel Choir, adult or youth ensembles,  or one of our children's choirs

11:15 am Worship

This service is for those who enjoy a more relaxed start to their morning and prefer a more intimate environment. Musical offerings most often feature soloists and ensemble groups, with the Chancel Choir singing on occasion. Nursery care is provided through age 4.

Elder Caregiving 101: What Every New Caregiver Needs to Know"
Our Speaker: Geriatric Care Manager Lucy Deutsch

Saturday Morning, January 20, 10:30 – 11:30 am
Halldorson Hall

Did you choose to be a caregiver, or did the situation choose you? Either way, your life will never be the same. Your caregiving journey will offer you the opportunity to develop skills and talents you may never have known you had. And, in the process, you will make an irreplaceable difference in the life of someone you love. This program will enlighten those new to the experience about what signs indicate help is needed, where to start, which questions to ask, and how to find the help you will need along the way.

This event is open to all PCCT members and the community at large, so please register in advance by calling the church office at (973) 635-2340.
