Following Jesus was never intended by God to be done alone. Living life Up (with God), In (with other followers of Jesus), and Out (reaching out with love and compassion to those who are not followers of Christ) is God’s plan for every Christian. We all need connection.
Life Communities are the primary place of connection at PICC. While we have some small groups to help stabilize long-term relationships between existing members, our Life Communities are more like an extended family gathering (15-50) where everyone is invited. These are places where intimacy is built, care is practiced, group growth is embraced, and mission is accomplished. It is a group of people who do more than meet on a weekly basis, as they seek to do life together and continually include others in the community. If you would like more information or would like to connect with a Life Community, contact David Rhodes at


These groups are larger than most small groups and center around “doing life and mission together.” (More in depth Bible study is available in our Learning Communities.) Most gatherings include a meal and designed to remain open to new people.
