Friday fellowships consist of games, youth-led worship, and teachings that deal with relevant issues that equip the youth with biblical wisdom to be lights within their urban context in the Bronx.

Love On The Streets
Love on the Streets (LOTS) is the heart of PLCC to gladly serve the least, the last, and the lost in the urban community. LOTS consists of community outreach to provide the physical and spiritual needs of individuals in the most impoverished areas of the Bronx. LOTS delivers hundreds of hot meals and essential supplies once a month to homeless individuals on the streets. The pantry also serves needy families with bags of donated nutritious groceries. Our team meets these individuals where they reside in places such as under bridges and near gas stations to feed, provide basic supplies, and pray for them. LOTS is overseen by Pastor Rosie Archilla and lead by Michelle Campos.
LOTS Ministry meets the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 9 am-11 am. All volunteers and food donations are greatly welcomed.
