Serve

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. Pastor Richard and his wife Elizabeth serve a mission congregation in Bodoi, Kenya. They came to the United States to visit their daughters, but health concerns have kept them here in the states. The whole Oyaro family helped PLPC to become aware of the needs of the small and ” forgotten”…

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.

The Branch

Jesus taught us to love our neighbors. One way we show our love is to help feed our neighbors in need. The Branch of Nashville is a food pantry that serves over 1000 families a month. They receive food from our government and food distributors such as Amazon. Sorting the food and making bags of meat, fresh produce, breads, and can goods takes many hands. The first Monday of every month from 10;00-12:00, volunteers from PLPC go to The Branch…

Rock Eternal Arabic-Speaking Worship Community

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…
