Pepperell Christian Fellowship began in the 1980s as community Bible study, and then, in 1988, was officially established as church. Our first services were held in a private home, and when we outgrew that space, we rented a building on Sunday mornings in a local office park. Wanting a more permanent home, we moved to our current location at 17 Main Street in 1992. After more growth, we began a building project, and in 2002 we moved into our new and current worship facility.
Pastor Stephen Witmer came to PCF from a teaching position at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in the spring of 2008, and continues the strong tradition, starting with our founding as a community Bible study, of keeping the Word of God at the core of PCF. This is true not only at Sunday worship, but at the women’s and men’s Bible studies, at weekly Youth Group meetings, at our Life Groups that meet in the homes of those who attend PCF, and at our several other activities and events.
Pepperell Christian Fellowship has grown up in the community of Pepperell, and, though many people from surrounding communities participate in the life of PCF, it is an important part of our mission that we be a community church, that we bring the Word to our community, and that we serve our community. Our mission statement states what PCF holds to be most important: We exist to be a Jesus-centered community in Pepperell, speaking gospel words and doing gospel works to display the worth of God to the world.
