Who We Are

A welcoming community for college students at UNC

We are a Presbyterian Church (USA) Christian community in Chapel Hill creating space for students to believe, belong, and become. UNC PCM strives to provide an inclusive, affirming space for students to explore their faith, ask questions, build community, and grow together.

In the big campus community of UNC, PCM hopes to be a community where you feel known and seen. PCM welcomes you, no matter where you are in your faith journey. This space is for you!
What We Do

PCM has a wealth of programming and opportunities available to students.

Thursday Night Programs

Our primary programming happens on Thursday nights, from 6-8pm: this is a great time to share a home-cooked meal, experience fellowship, and explore faith together.

 From 6-7pm, we all share a meal together, inclusive of all dietary restrictions, and homemade by students on our leadership team. From 7-8pm, we spend an hour engaging in large and small groups with a student-led discussion topic. Past topics have included holy anger, uncertainty and doubt, expansive gender identities in scripture, and theology & play, but topics are always changing, and are based on student interests.

Bible Study

Each semester, we begin a new weekly Bible study, supported by PCM staff and by staff at University Presbyterian Church. These weekly discussions are casual, fun, and open-minded—no pre-knowledge or Bible trivia skills needed! PCM Bible study is a great way to start exploring scripture and asking questions, whether you’re well-versed, or it’s your first time leafing through a Bible.

Retreats

PCM loves to travel! Each year, we go on a minimum of four optional retreats:

Fall Retreat at Montreat

Montreat College Conference

Spring Break Trip (past trips: Cuba, New Mexico, NC Mountain Backpacking, California)

Spring Beach Retreat

 PCM Retreats are a great way to grow closer in community, to take a break from the stressors of college, and to spend time laughing, bonding, relaxing, and reflecting together.

Trips are all sliding scale, and scholarships and financial assistance are available for all PCM travel—we never want cost to be a barrier.
