Park Lake On Wednesday (P.L.O.W.)

                  Park Lake On Wednesday (1st & 3rd Wed. of month, 2nd Wed. is  Committee Night for most PLPC Congregational Committees)

                  6:00 - 7:45 p.m.


Park Lake is committed to being the Body of Christ. This means growing in our faith, in our commitment to Christ, in our community as believers. One of the ways we do this is through gathering mid-week to break bread together, share a meal, share concerns, laugh, talk, and yes, even learn. This is an intergenerational gathering. Come pray with us about people who stand in special need. Come, we’ll sing Happy Birthday or Happy Anniversary to you on your special day! Come be with your church family. Come touch base. Come relax. We have activities for all ages and interests:

 Handbells (practices each Wed. of the month)

                                                         6:45 p.m. led by Robb Ross


Child Care

Child care is available for infants and young children.


Elementary age group

Arts, games, mission project.


Middle and Senior High groups

           Gather for a break during the busy school week just to ‘hang’ and be with friends.
