PCCUCC provides outreach to the Plainfield community and wider areas through a multitude of outreach missions. On a regular basis, we support local organizations such as:
Morning Star Mission:
Morning Star Mission has been providing shelter, food, clothing, and hope to those in need in Joliet since 1909. On the first Saturday of every month, our church serves lunch at the mission. At Easter and Christmas, we host a gift-giving exchange to benefit families and children.
Growing Hope Globally:
Growing Hope Globally (formerly Foods Resource Bank) is a Christian-based program that promotes self-sufficiency by providing food, seed, education, supplies, and tools for hungry people and poorly equipped farmers in underdeveloped nations. We partners with several other Illinois churches from different denominations to raise funds for the Foods Resource Bank each year. Nearly $700,000 has been raised since this partnership began 10 years ago.
We also seek to improve the spirit of fellowship among our congregation by organizing holiday meals and special events, as well as year round commitments such as prayer chains and emergency meals. All of these ministries strengthen the life of the congregation, nurture its members, and empower us to be "a joyous family where all are welcome to grow in faith and love."
Five for Five Special Mission
In addition, we also partner with the UCC to support the Five for Five Special Mission Offerings. These special offerings contribute to wider ministries in the U.S. and around the world.
