Here is the updated vision, values, and mission.
Vision:  PPMCC exists to do justice, embrace God’s love for ALL, and to walk humbly with our God.

Values:

  • Spirituality:  We support people on their journey to connect with God, and, as a church, we invite people to experience God through the life and teachings of Jesus.
  • Inclusion – Love is our greatest moral value and resisting exclusion is a primary focus of our ministry.  We provide a community where everyone is included in the family of God and unconditionally welcomed at God’s table.
  • Community – Our deep desire is to offer a safe, compassionate, and open community for people to worship, learn, and grow in their faith.  We are committed to equipping ourselves and each other to do the work that God has called us to do in the world.
  • Justice – We are committed to resisting the structures that oppress people and standing with those who suffer under the weight of oppressive systems.

Mission: PPMCC provides reconciliation, healing and hope for all people by:

  • Celebrating an inclusive spirituality that respects the diversity of all;
  • Experiencing God’s presence through authentic worship and meaningful relationships;
  • Fostering a culture that encourages outreach to our community; and by
  • Embodying the example of Christ by participating in justice work for the oppressed.

Outside My Own Little World

It seems the world these days teeters between those who seek to protect “their own” and those who dare to declare that all are worthy of compassion and care. Years ago, Matthew West wrote a song called “My Own Little World” (check out the video below). It resonates perhaps even more today than when he wrote it as an anthem of encouragement to get out of ourselves and our “own little world.” In this series, we will remember why we are a Body together–being the hands and feet of Christ in a frightened and hurting world. We will focus not just on maintaining the church, but why it is that the church exists at all. We will reaffirm our purpose in the world and who we are together.

Join us on Sundays between October 9 & November 20 at 10 am!
