There are many ways to stay connected to our church family during this time as well as ways to be encouraged through Scripture by our pastors and staff.

Protective Masks Project

Help meet the need for protective masks by serving in a few tangible ways. As many of you have seen on the news, several 2PC members are engaged in serving those on the front lines by making protective masks.

If you are interested in helping, please fill out this form to let the Domestic Outreach team know.

Watch this how-to video for an explanation of how to make the masks.

Frozen Meals Available

Service Opportunities

Use This Card to Help a Neighbor If you are able, print a few flyers (pdf download here) and leave them on the front doors of houses in your neighborhood. This is a great way to serve those who live near you and might not be able to get to the grocery or simply need someone to talk to by phone.

Caring for Our Flock
