We aim as a church to display the worth of God to the world, so outreach is very important to us. We serve our community by volunteering at our local senior center, serving and support Real Options pregnancy center, supporting our local food pantry, Pepperell Aid from Community to Home, providing local aid through our Deacons’ Fund, and inviting the people of Pepperell and surrounding communities to free concerts and fun events (such as Bible Venture formerly Vacation Bible School). A Serenity Choir based at PCF is available to sing to anyone in the local community who is unwell or home-bound and in need of encouragement.
As a church, we devote more than 10% of our income to supporting a number of missionary families and organizations, both at home and abroad. Our missionaries are engaged in a wide sweep of gospel activity: leading gospel camps for kids, ministering to juvenile prison inmates around the world, helping young, single mothers, translating the Bible into other languages, training Christian leaders in Africa, coordinating relief efforts to Muslims in the Middle East, and ministering to residents of nursing homes in New Hampshire. We regularly have our missionaries visit us, and we also lead short-term teams to visit our missionaries (we’ve taken teams to Haiti and Uganda).
To learn more about the missionaries and ministries that we support, please visit their web pages.
