PCC Online - Church At Home

For the past several weeks, we’ve been grateful for the ability to worship together online, and we encourage you to continue to attend Church At Home if you or a family member doesn’t feel well, or if you're just not ready to attend church at our physical location. You’re part of the PCC family no matter where you choose to attend!

Starting May 17th, our services will be streaming our services LIVE at 9AM & 11AM on our Website, the PCC App, Youtube & Facebook Live. This includes worship, the message and the community of your church family through live chat and prayer. We will restream our service at 6PM on our website & Facebook Live as well.
April 4th, 2020 UPDATE
Pinellas Community Church continues to monitor the situation  regarding COVID-19 and the impacts not only to our church family but to St. Petersburg and all of the surrounding areas. While our church remains committed to abiding by CDC Guidance and those of our city, state, and federal governments, we remain committed to serving our community. Our services will remain online at this time.

Our food pantry, Feed St. Pete, will remain open to serve those needing food during these times. Feed St. Pete operates Tuesday's 5PM - 7PM. Additionally, we are partnering with various outreaches in our city to meet the needs of our church family and the citizens of St. Petersburg.

For the safety of our staff and their families, we have asked the majority of them to work from home at this time. Our church offices remain open with limited staff Mondays - Thursdays 9Am - 1PM. Our phones are available during regular business hours 9AM - 5PM.  If you need immediate assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
