Growing a Christ-centered community who welcomes gladly, sings joyfully and serves boldly!PLC Mission Statement
Our Mission Statement Explained
Welcome Gladly: This is at the core of who we are as a congregation. It is our intention to energetically greet you, help you feel relaxed and appreciated, and make sure that when you depart you have been blessed by your worship experience.
Sing Joyfully: This is a great strength of our fellowship. Our music program is led by excellent music staff that elevate our worship. Our praise team, bell and channel choirs collaborate effectively to deliver an inspirational blended service.
Serve Boldly: This is at the center of following Jesus. We seek to involve every person to actively serve in some capacity. We practice our faith by quilting and greeting, joining the Care Team, servicing in leadership or traveling on a mission trip.
