Our PCC Vision: An inclusive community, celebrating God's unconditional love ...
- We join and support efforts to improve the lives of residents in the local area through Valley Outreach, Community Thread, Connect Center and Homeless Strategy and Advocacy Team (HSAT) of Washington County. We are hosting a June 2023 Red Cross Blood Drive.
- At People's Park, we maintain a labyrinth and a community garden for community enjoyment. We participate in a major environmental restoration effort with the Washington County Conservation District and Middle St. Croix Watershed, redeveloping two acres as native prairie to attract pollinators, wildlife, native plants and flowers.
- Our Justice and Outreach Team Supports the congregation in social justice advocacy and direct action in collaboration with like-minded community organizations in the St. Croix Valley. We engage in quarterly mission initiatives under the broad areas of economic, identity and environmental justice. Each mission includes giving (financial support), learning (system-level understanding) and action/advocacy. 2023 quarterly missions: affordable housing/homelessness (winter), land recognition and stewardship (spring), a pause for the summer, LGBTQ Inclusivity (fall).
