Serve


To belong means to be accepted and included, as one with a purpose. At PAC, serving others is something we do together, with Jesus as our model (Mark 10:45). It's part of who we are. We believe everyone has something special to contribute, and when we serve others––with friends at our side––we experience what it means to belong as we grow in faith and discover our purpose.


Below are very practical ways you can be involved in the life of PAC. Opportunities are alphabetically organized by area of ministry. Spiritual gifts are listed to help you find your niche.
