NURSERY MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
Would you like to assist in the nursery ministry of PPC? We are looking for folks who are willing to enjoy the opportunity of caring for our smallest members and friends during our Sunday AM services.
Or, perhaps helping facilitate the cleaning of our nursery facility would be a better fit for you to minister with us. Nursery cleaning would involve approximately an hour a week, on a rotation basis.
If either of these nursery ministry opportunities are of interest to you, please see Darryl.
An important element of our goal to come alongside of survivors of domestic abuse is Refuge Ministries. We are currently holding weekly support groups for women and men, here at Providence, and welcome others to join us and find healing and redemption from oppression. Do you know someone who would benefit from participating in these weekly support groups? Please see Vince for more information.
NEW MEN’S STUDY
