FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are you still in person? What does a Sunday look like?
Yes we are worshipping in person. Coronvirus has made worshipping hard, but not impossible. We as a church are taking safety measures while also seeking to faithfully fulfill our calling to gather and worship God. Montgomery County is currently requiring masks for public indoor settings – churches included. At 9:30 am we’ll meet in the lobby of the gym for a time of fellowship. At 10:00AM we have Bible studies for all ages. Some classes may be available virtually. Please contact the office for more information on those. At 11 am we have our Worship Service. During the service, Kids Connection is available for children who are 3rd grade and under. To keep all of us safe we are wearing masks and are spreading out across the sanctuary as much as possible. If you still feel uncomfortable attending in person, we are streaming live every Sunday!
What is the music like?
The music we sing at Poolesville seeks to be a blend of old and new. We love the doctrinally-rich hymns and we find blessing in the choruses of the twenty-first century. We strongly prefer congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body singing praise to God with one voice, over performed music, which tends to spotlight the abilities of some while encouraging passivity in the rest.
What are the sermons like?
Preaching at PBC seeks to be relevant to today’s issues, but still remains fully expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. On a regular basis, our sermon series alternate between the Old and New Testaments. All preaching is gospel-driven.
