We're celebrating our special PIMC community at noon on Sunday, March 26 . We're calling it "Thank You Sunday" because we are grateful for everyone who supports PIMC through their time, talents and treasure.

Stewardship Circle Retreat

Peace in the Midst of Everything - A Day of Meditation and Ease with Robert Beatty, Saturday March 25th, 9am - 4:00pm.

Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
