Spring seminar or special program

In the Spring of each year, PPRC hosts a lecture, or other special program, to which we invite the public.

On Friday, June 7, 2019 at 7:00 PM Reverend Andrew Lanning, of Byron Center PRC in Michigan, presented a lecture titled
'The Necessity of Church Membership.' It was held in the sanctuary of our church with a question and answer session
and refreshments to follow. Click here if you would like to listen to the lecture.


Children's program

At the end of Catechism Classes each spring, the students, ranging in age from 4 to 14, host an evening where individual and class projects are presented and on display.  Their imagination and ingenuity always amazes!  Light refreshments are served.


Memorial day picnic

Memorial Day sees PPRC members, family, and friends at a local park enjoying fellowship, food, and fun.  Children ride bikes, play games, enjoy a water slide while adults play tennis, basketball, deck hockey, baseball, or board games.  Fellowship and food are plentiful!
