On Sunday, May 7th, we will mobilize as a congregation to worship God through service to our community. This will be a powerful day to meet the needs of both individuals and organizations in the Maple Valley area. Whether you call MVPC home or not, we invite you to participate with us! We will gather at 10am for a brief time of worship and a short message before going out into the community to serve.
