Teaching is fun, the lessons are planned for you and the time commitment is as little as a month of Sundays.
PCM began its work in the fall of 1998. Our vision has been to create an intentional caring connection among all First Church members, especially those that are homebound, in nursing facilities, hospitalized or going through a difficult time. Our mission is to do Christ’s work by creating opportunities for our parishioners to use their gifts as they reach out to one another in love.
