PCOP is home to a number of community groups and two congregations--there's almost always something going on! When you're planning to visit, you might wonder just where those rooms are. Here's a virtual tour of this building that houses our church, so you'll be ready to find whatever group or event you're looking for.
When you enter the building from the parking lot, you'll be greeted at the welcome center.
Turn left to enter the older part of the building, originally built in 1959. The Narthex (which has restrooms to the left) is the transitional space, between outside and the sanctuary. This portion of the building (Narthex and Sanctuary) is not air conditioned.
Passing through the Narthex, you'll find yourself in the sanctuary. With both grand piano and pipe organ, pews and space for wheelchairs, and seating for up to 300, it is a beautiful space for gathering to worship.
Across the entryway, to the right of the welcome center, you'll find our beautiful library. Stocked with a wide selection of books, comfortable chairs, and good light, it is a welcoming place for all!
If you turn to the right after entering the building, you'll see the church office. Stop here for all kinds of information!
Down the hall on the left is our main meeting and fellowship space, the Cosby Room. Named for Geraldine Cosby, one of our faithful charter members and the first woman ordained as an elder in the congregation, just two years after founding! The Cosby Room can be configured in any number of ways, and can seat up to ~75 around tables.
Continue down the hall through the double doors, and the next door on your left (opposite the restrooms) will be the music room.
And on the right, opposite the nursery, you'll find a multi-purpose classroom with chairs, tables, a sofa, and plenty of wall space!
The nursery is at the end of the hall, providing safe space for our littlest members and visitors to play and learn. There is a crib and changing table in a separate, quiet room, behind the craft room (not pictured). The main nursery has toys and books, and is staffed every Sunday morning by a professional caregiver and a church volunteer who has been trained in our child protection policy.
Downstairs (accessible either from outdoor stairs at the west end of the building, or indoor stairs near the welcome center), you'll find two small classroom spaces, a very large (partition-able) multi-purpose space, a kitchen, and restrooms. This is where we host PADS every Wednesday evening from October through April, as well as Summer Suppers, and a variety of community groups ranging from theater troupes to Boy Scouts to exercise classes.
