Mission, Evangelism, and Volunteering
In response to Christ's reminder, "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these... you did it to me," Priest Lake Presbyterian Church believes strongly in Mission outreach as a way to deepen our relationship with God and with our fellow man. The second Sunday of the month is Mission Sunday. Learn more about our relationships with the missions we serve and see how you can connect with others.
The youth of our community are a true mission for this church. Through our Sunday night Konnect program, we create welcoming, fun, and safe learning environment for the children and youth of our community.
|Project J.O.Y. (Joyous Offering of Youth)
This youth-driven project is the church's biggest mission. We collect food, clothing, toiletries, and learning bags to distribute to an impoverished community in the Appalachian mountain area of Kentucky [more]
|Martha O'Bryan Center
Martha O'Bryan Center, a Christian outreach ministry located in the James A. Cayce Homes, supports and empowers individuals and families in need living in the East Nashville and surrounding community to attain greater levels of well-being and self-reliance, and provides opportunities for people to respond to God's love by giving through service.
PLPC participates in Miss Martha's Ice Cream Crankin' each year.
|5 Cents a Meal
The Presbyterian Hunger Program (PHP), a ministry of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), works to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes, responding with compassion and justice to poor and hungry people in local communities in the United States and internationally.
Through giving to the annual One Great Hour of Sharing offering and year-round support of the Hunger Fund through 4 Cents a Meal collections, Presbyterians provide the PHP with approximately four million dollars a year to support ministries of direct food relief, development assistance, public policy advocacy, education, and lifestyle integrity. The PHP seeks to fulfill its mission through strategic grantmaking, print and web educational and worship materials, and participatory programs that allow us to recognize and love especially the most vulnerable of our neighbors next door and across the planet.
Through grants, this mission benefits local programs such as Project JOY.
Every 4th Sunday, the youth of the church take up a special offering to support this mission.
|Second Harvest Food Bank
Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee opened its doors in 1978 with commitment from several community leaders. The purpose of the organization was to provide a central distribution center for companies, groups, and individuals who wished to help provide food for Middle Tennessee's hungry. Second Harvest's mission is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community.
The Ladies' Lunch Bunch makes monthly donations to this worthwhile cause.
The Christian Kitchen provides meals for friends and members of the church in times of need. Contact the church office if you know of someone in our church community who needs a meal during a time of need.
Anyone interested in being an usher or greeter is very welcome. Greeters hand out church bulletins before the service and assist the Ushers with taking up the offering. To become an usher or greeter, speak to the Worship Elder who will give you the very brief training necessary. On days when communion is served, the ushers/greeters must be Elders.
