Adult Ministry at PPBC
The Ladies’ Ministry
Meets the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 6PM in the Family Life Center dining area
 
Each meeting starts with fellowship over dinner (rotating cooking schedule) and prayer. Then they work on the selected outreach project for that month.
 
The Ladies’ Ministry selects an outreach project every month that they support.
Some past projects include:
  • Winter coats for the Battered Women’s Shelter in Monroe
  • Providing books for the Backpack Ministry
  • Provide full Easter Baskets for the children that were on the Angel Tree at Christmas
  • Make and deliver Mother’s Day gift bags for the Women’s Shelter
  • School Supplies for Indian Trail Elementary School
  • Shoe-boxes for Samaritan’s Purse
  • Monetary Donation for Samaritan’s Purse for Hurricane Relief
  • Christmas Gift Baskets for our Shut-Ins
 
They also cross-support other ministries within the church (like The Angel Tree,  The Backpack Ministry, and The Missions Team). And they collect items for the homeless among other charity work not in the monthly list.
 
All ladies are welcome to join the Ladies’ Ministry.

The Men’s Ministry
The Men’s Ministry is in the process of rebuilding this adult ministry and is looking for more active participants.
 
Our current participants typically volunteer through this ministry service to our elderly congregants and members with activities around their homes that they have trouble doing on their own. In the past The Men’s Ministry has also had fellowship meals and gatherings to provide brotherly support and would like to restart this again on a regular basis. And they are also looking in the future to start a Small Group Discipleship for men centered around selected bible study topics.
 
If you have an interest in joining our church’s Men’s Ministry, please contact our church office at (704) 847-9237.
