Here at Pearce

Our vision is to look, live, and love like Jesus. We work to fulfill this through our mission to be and make disciples of Jesus that love God and neighbor. And all of this is done through three strategic priorities—Worship, Community, and Service.

“1 for 1” Summer Nursery Opportunity

We want parents to be free to worship and know their children are well cared for, so we’re asking everyone to consider serving in the nursery this summer one time this summer, for one service (“1 for 1”). Pick a time at the summer nursery wall in the lobby after services or click “learn more” below to let Abby Monroe know that you’re available to help.
