Explore the resources below to learn more about the Gospel as well as how you can follow Jesus, deepen your relationship with God, use your gifts to serve others, and connect to a spiritual family in church community and membership.

That’s why we invite you to connect with us at Peninsula Community Chapel!

Join a Home Group (Community Group)

A PCC home group is a small group of adults who gather weekly to study, encourage each other and work towards spreading God’s fame locally and globally. Group leaders have proven themselves as men who love God and are committed to His people, and they use an inductive, discussion-based approach to Bible study. Guests are always welcome!

During the summer months (June - August), home groups take a break and everyone is encouraged to join a Summer Interest Group. These groups are formed around common interests (walking, cooking, golf, etc.) and provide fun, fellowship & community in a fresh way. Join a group or more! Click here for more info and a group listing for Summer 2024.

Signposts: The Spiritual Growth Track at PCC

Plugging into and getting deeply involved in a church like PCC can be a daunting task. We’ve identified four stages of growth at PCC that we believe will guide your journey of faith and service as you discover what it means to know His joy and change His world in the context of this church.  We believe that in order to experience joy and participate in change, we all must be growing in our faith and living out a life that proclaims the good news of Jesus to our community and to the world.


We need hundreds of volunteers at PCC in order to most effectively serve as the body of Christ that God has called us to be. Click below to see our current needs and sign up where you can help. This list changes frequently so check back often.

Become a Member

As soon as you decide to make PCC your church home, we would encourage you to pursue Membership. Becoming a member is a way to officially declare that this local church body is your church. It is also a way for the church to officially affirm you as part of this local church. Practicing church membership helps us to push back against the modern temptation to keep our faith private and to treat church as if we were merely consumers of a product, instead of members of Christ’s body. We offer a Membership Interest Class quarterly that covers our church’s history, beliefs, philosophy of ministry, and the role of membership. Attendance at that class is required before you can apply to become a member. Once you complete the class and submit your application, one of our Elders will schedule a time to connect and discuss your application with you. You are not required to be a member to participate or serve in most Chapel ministries, so please do not wait to become a member before getting plugged in to one of our Home Groups, Bible Studies, or any of the other various ministries or volunteer areas. There are a few key leadership areas (pastor/elder, home group leader, staff, etc.) that we limit to qualified members, to ensure that those leaders are on board with our beliefs and philosophy of ministry. Otherwise, while you wait on the next Membership Interest Class or as you figure out whether the Lord is calling you to pursue membership at PCC, we would encourage you to dive into ministry and see where He leads you.

Starting Point

Starting Point is a directory that we publish with information about every ministry at PCC. If you are looking for one document that covers all that is going on at PCC, this is that document!


The symbol of water baptism serves as a lasting, visible reminder that we have already had one funeral and that we are now risen with Christ. Candidates for baptism are required to complete a baptism preparation worksheet and discuss its application to life with a mentor prior to experiencing the sacrament. If you are a parent inquiring for your child, please notify the office at least one month in advance in order to permit the mentor sufficient time to walk with your child through the meaning and significance of this important event in their lives. Baptisms are conducted publicly by PCC pastors in the Fall and Winter during Sunday morning worship services and in the Summer during Sunday evening picnics at Fort Monroe or PCC.
