The Bulb – We partner with The Bulb to bring a mobile product Market to PPC every Thursday. Together, we are creating a world where food is a right and not a privilege. It is free for everyone in the community. There are no qualifications, no one is turned away. If you have been at work all day and are exhausted, and seeing a friendly face is what you need most come. If you are just barely making it and the market would be the difference in your weekly budget, come. If don’t know where your next meal is coming from, we definitely want you to come and come often. Each of you are the reason we do what we do. We are the church. We are family.
A majority of the produce comes from small, sustainable North Carolina and South Carolina farms that are working to meaningfully connect local produce to the community.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
The Prayer Shawl Ministry, sponsored by the Stephen Ministers, constructs and delivers prayer shawls to individuals who are experiencing major life events and who would benefit from knowing others have been and will continue to pray for them. The recipients are not limited to PPC members; however, distribution is controlled to prevent multiple shawls from being presented to the same recipient.
If you think someone is in need of a shawl, contact any Stephen Minister, Deacon, pastor, or the Prayer Shawl Ministry members.
