PVCC has several people whose hearts and minds are particularly committed to Missions – on a local, national, and global scale. Our current Missions Team includes Mary Pafford, Olivia Halliburton, Austin and Erica Trusty, Nancy Kinsey, and Michael and Kelli Corrigan.
For more information about Missions at PVCC, contact Austin Trusty or Michael Corrigan.
Several times throughout the year, we invite missionaries we support to share updates on their ministry, tell us how we can pray for them, and let us thank them for their service. We also collect change for these missionaries in our Missions Can.
Once every few years, we send a group from our church out to do mission work. We’ve made several trips to support ministries listed below; we’ve also made other trips as well. Keep an eye out for the next opportunity!
IDES Food Packing Night
Every Summer, PVCC hosts IDES (International Disaster Emergency Services) for a night of packing nonperishable meals to be shipped to those in need overseas. Each year, our goal is to pack over 10,000 meals! Our tentative 2018 date is Friday, July 20.
For more information about this specific event, contact the Missions Team, or Denise O’Grady.
Operation Christmas Child
Each Fall, we participate in Operation Christmas Child – sharing the love of Christ and the joy of Christmas with children overseas.
