That All May Know Him!
Philippians 3:10a (NLT) – “I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead.”
Our Missions Conference at PPC is going to look a little different this year! Because of the COVID pandemic, we’ve changed many of the components of our missions conference. However, the mission remains that same! We desire at PPC to pray, give and go so that all may know him!
Our missions conference goal is $130,000. The monies raised will go towards supporting local and global missions partners as well as several special projects planned for this upcoming year. We’re believing that as you’ve experienced the mighty power of Christ in your life, that you’ll partner with us in helping others experience that same saving power.
Together, we can reach our missions goal and continue to fulfil our mission to go into the world and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20).
