This conversation sheet offers families and individuals a source of reflection and discussion around the scripture lesson. And for our young ones: please enjoy this week's children's bulletin.

Receiving of offerings is missing from our order of worship but continues to be important to sustain our church community.

We look forward to welcoming our interim pastor, the Rev. Deborah Packard, on May 31st at her first worship with PPC! Please read this intro letter from Lori Girard on behalf of the Interim Pastor Search Committee, as well as Pastor Deb's bio.
