At PUCC, our adult ministry includes many programs that adults of all ages can explore and join.
The Quilt Ministry was inspired by a group of several members of PUCC who enjoy quilting and wanted to offer support to those in our congregation experiencing a difficult time or recovering from surgery. For church members identified as benefiting from this support, the Quilt Ministry Team will make quilt squares available for church members to write a note of support or encouragement on a square that the Quilt Ministry Team will then finish into a quilt. The completed quilt is then given to the member in need in hopes they will be comforted by the words of love, faith and support from the congregation. In addition to the prayer quilts, the Quilt Ministry Team also make quilts that are presented to families when an infant is baptized.
ACE – Adult Christian Education
The Adult Christian Education programs offered at PUCC include a variety of opportunities for our congregation to participate in at various times throughout the year. We offer Bible studies or series with discussions, along with book clubs where participants can share in discussion regarding a particular book. Presentations sharing spiritual trips or journeys have been shared, as well as informational/discussion programs regarding church activities or the wider community have been offered for greater understanding.
The Meal Train is a ministry designed to support church families in need of meals during difficult times with church members willing to provide a meal when needed.
As a Stephen Ministry congregation, our formally trained Stephen Ministers are equipped and empowered lay caregivers that provide one-to-one long term, confidential, Christ-centered care to those that are experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment.
One of the ministries we share at PUCC is our ChristCare Groups. These are small groups of members who meet together regularly for study, sharing, prayer and fellowship. We currently have 5 groups including a couple of women’s groups, a men’s group, and a mixed gender group, and they have proven to be a powerful way to support and care for one another and to grow personally and spiritually. Our ChristCare groups provide members with a place where they can grow together and grow in Christ through listening, discussing and reflecting upon Scripture and applying God’s truth to their daily lives. Together, they care for one another and share in study, worship, fellowship and service.
