The International and Local Missions Ministries at MPPC strive to follow Christ’s example and call to love our neighbors as ourselves—by sharing the Good News of God’s grace in our lives, standing with the poor and needy, and giving a voice to the voiceless. Whether that means we are walking across the street, helping out across town, or traveling to other countries, members of MPPC are learning what it means to be the hands and feet of Christ through missional partnership and mutual service with others.


The heart of Local Missions at MPPC is to connect with children and families in need, sharing the love of Christ in empowering and life-giving ways.
