Our culture loves restoration. Whether it be reality shows about homes restored, stories of lives and relationships restored, or the store Restoration Hardware, there is something that draws us to the concept. At PCC, we are about restoration as well. Restoration brings hope. We live in the hope that there is Good News for every broken human being as well as the broken systems in our culture. God is the ultimate Fixer Upper – He loves to rebuild, restore, and renew broken lives.
Join us for an 12-week journey through the book of Nehemiah and what is quite possibly the most famous restoration project in the Old Testament: the rebuilding of the walls and people of Jerusalem. God took Nehemiah on a journey (literally and spiritually) to restore hope to a broken people, to rebuild walls of a city that lay in ruin, and finally to spiritually renew a community that had grown spiritually cold. In our journey through this book, we’ll be encouraged anew to be healed as we participate in the healing of others!

We’d love to highlight stories of PCC’ers who are, through their everyday lives, partnering with God to restore, rebuild, and renew what is broken in our world! Who do you know who is living in such a significant way that they are being renewed – being healed as they participate in the healing of others? Who do you know who is restoring, rebuilding, or renewing our world through their neighborhood, their family, their marriage, or their life in some way?
