Outreach to others is one of the most vital components of our church. Our congregation is passionate about serving the least and the lost and making our community a better place. We can be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, and in doing so, be a blessing to others.  To learn how you can be more involved in Local Outreach, contact Beth Spencer at 404.240.8234 or beths@prumc.org.
