On January 9, 1983, two Bible study groups met under the leadership of the founding pastor, Dr. W. Millar Crawford at the Pittsford Recreation Center to form Pittsford Community Church (PCC). The congregation moved to St. John Fisher College in July 1983. In September 1983 a group held an overnight retreat at the Watson Homestead to discuss doctrine and form a constitution. In addition to Sunday services, home Bible study groups continued to be an important part of the life of PCC. Pastor Dana Goodnough joined the PCC ministry team in September 1985.
