Priest Lake is a small church doing big things!

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 community outreach as a way to deepen our relationship with God and with our fellow man.

Angaza Nuru

Angaza Nuru When the Oyaro family came to PLPC from Kenya, no one knew how much God would use them to transform the hearts and minds of the church.

PLPC Garden

Community Garden

In the spring of 2019, the PLPC Community Garden was born! We partner with Smith Springs Community Center to teach kids and adults how to plant and maintain vegetables. We then distribute the harvested bounty to our neighborhood members who have less resources. Volunteers are always welcome… contact the church office for more information.

Blessing Box

What began in the Summer of 2020 as an extension of our Garden Ministry, has become a ministry all it’s own. The Blessing Box provides an opportunity for our congregation and community to share with one another non-perishable food, toiletries, and school supplies. The motto is “Take what you need, Share what you can”. The Blessing Box is located on the front porch of the cabin.

Since then, Rock Eternal has been meeting on Sunday nights at 7:00 p.m. for worship. Our two communities (pre-Covid) meet on Wednesday evenings 12 weeks per year to share a meal, children’s study time and adult conversational English. We also…
