Service is one of the key strategies that drives us as a church. But for most of us, even the best of intentions don’t always translate to consistent action. We may be limited by time, mobility, and transportation. Sometimes the sheer magnitude of service opportunities can leave us feeling overwhelmed.
PCBC Serves exists to remedy these problems by creating centralized, hands-on service opportunities on a monthly basis right here at Park Cities. Every month’s gathering features a ministry partner who you can directly support by participating in a short service project—assembling meal kits, measuring and packaging non-perishables, writing encouraging notes, and much more.
“The goal was to get more folks serving on a regular basis,” explains Mission Volunteer Coordinator Jessica Lamberth. “We saw that there are a lot of folks that want to help, but can’t get out in the community.”
PCBC Serves began as an additional activity for senior adults who meet at the church every week for lunch. After the positive response, the opportunity was expanded to all.
“We wanted our gatherings to serve as a great introduction to our ministry partners as well as a simple opportunity to serve,” said Lamberth. “People can leave with a sense of accomplishment, knowing they made a real difference in someone’s life. It also opens the door to finding out what ministries you’re passionate about.”
Older elementary children, middle schoolers, and high school students are also welcome to join their parents and participate in the monthly project.
