PCW has been experiencing a recent resurgence in visitation, worship attendance and membership. In four years, our average worship attendance has nearly doubled. Over that same period, we have increased our membership by nearly 10% each year. Exciting things are happening here and we would love for you to be a part of it!
Our Wednesday night youth group meets twice a month. During the school year, we have Sunday school classrooms for all ages and we have a fully staffed nursery for the convenience of young families. We also have a Parent's Day Out program during the week that allows parents to drop off their young children at church for structured care.
We have some fun activities throughout the year including our community Easter Egg Hunt where we hosted over 140 children this year. We also support and volunteer for various mission projects in the name of Jesus Christ, including Loving Hearts Outreach, the Harvest Table and Warner’s Coat Drive (to name just a few). We have a thriving mission garden that grows green beans, potatoes, spinach and sweet potatoes throughout the year that are all donated to the food pantries of Washington to feed the hungry. And, this fall (2017), we are launching a new Weekend Meals on Wheels ministry!
