Our goal at PPC is not to make your life busier but to help to integrate faith into all of life. Below are a few examples as to how we do this. But if one of these are not where you are at there are plenty of other opportunities to help with youth, kids and seniors. For further details please contact our pastor Joel, Email

The Raw Carrot

The goal of the Raw Carrot ministry is to hire individuals that are currently on social assistance or that have barriers to traditional employment to cook up healthy, handcrafted gourmet soups that are sold at farmer’s markets, community events and retail locations in the Paris community and beyond. Proceeds from the sales fund the participant salaries to enable them to participate in meaningful economic employment.  Through this ministry, we aim to develop community, build self-confidence and increase livelihood security.  The Raw Carrot emerged as a result of the Drop-In & Catch Up that the church runs.

Do you have a heart for the disadvantaged in our community?  Then Boarding Home ministry is tailor made for you. Boarding home residents are the forgotten people of our society; isolated because of the challenges they cope with on a daily basis.The visits from the volunteers bring great joy to the residents.  The time spent in simple conversation and a refreshment proves to be rewarding to the volunteer as well.  The residents and Boarding Home staff are very supportive of this ministry.
