What We Do
Welcome to JKPC!
Our church building and campus is used throughout the week, not just on Sunday morning. Volunteers are important to church life. We tend God's Pollinator Garden in an effort to conserve Monarch butterflies, bees and other pollinators.
One of our Matthew 25 initiatives is to support efforts to eliminate poverty. We do this by donating food regularly as part of our First Fruits offering, the first Sunday of the month and with Thanksgiving "baskets" each November to clients of Eastern Area Community Ministries. We also hope to begin a Senior Nutrition Meals program as Covid restrictions are lifted.
Below you will find additional activities we do in and outside the church and how we are involved in the community.

What is a Matthew 25 church?
Matthew 25:31–46 calls all of us to actively engage in the world around us, so our faith comes alive and we wake up to new possibilities. Convicted by this passage, both the 222nd and 223rd General Assemblies (2016 and 2018) exhorted the PC(USA) to act boldly and compassionately to see our neighbors through Jesus’ eyes and serve those who are marginalized or in need — people who are hungry, thirsty, naked, sick, imprisoned, strangers, poor or oppressed in other ways and in need of welcoming.
