Our mission is to lead all children and their families to a life-changing, ever growing relationship with Jesus.
We consider it a privilege to serve the children and parents of our church family and local community.
PBC Kids Ministries
PBC teachers and helpers have a heart for children and work to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for each child while their parents or caretakers attend Adult Classes and Worship Services. All of our primary teachers have attended PBC for at least 6 months undergo a background check and child safety training. Our secondary adult helpers must also have completed a background check and child safety training. Check-in/out procedures are enforced in every setting.

Sunday Morning 9:30am Ministries
Children’s classes are offered to children from nursery through Grade 5 at 9:30am. We want your children to experience the person and character of Jesus Christ. Your children will experience Christ through stories, crafts, song and small group experiences designed to introduce them to our Savior. Expect a lot of fun and learning! They learn to praise God together during a sing time from 10:30-10:45am. Parents, need to pick up their kids (K-3rd) by 10:45am to attend the worship service as a family. 4th-5th graders will be dismissed for the worship service on their own.
Sunday Morning 11:00am Worship Services
At 11:00am, Kindergarten – 5th graders enjoy worship in the main auditorium with their families. Approximately mid-way through the worship service each week, Kindergarten-3rd children will be dismissed to Children’s Church. Teachers will be enjoying worship as well and will lead the children back to the kid’s program at that time. 4th-5th graders remain in the worship service to worship with their families (see more below).
4th & 5th Grade Ministry
Kids are growing up in a vastly different time from even just 10 years ago. Social media has completely transformed the way everyone communicates and interacts with the world around them. More importantly, it is at this age that kids begin taking all the Bible stories they’ve heard their whole life and try to fit them together in a cohesive way while ALSO learning how to navigate friendships, social media, entertainment, and family dynamics.
4th-5th Grade With this in mind, PBC has develop a pre-teen ministry to help kids begin to put all of this together through a Biblical lens. Our goal for this ministry is to keep the wonder and innocence of childhood while adding spiritual discernment to navigate the world around them (Matthew 10:16).
We are so incredibly grateful and thrilled take this journey with you and your children. 4th and 5th Graders meet in the upstairs balcony (south) of the Main Building. Each week, they will check-in there and be released at 10:45am to attend the 11:00am worship service in the same way as Jr and Sr High students – worshiping with their parents or ministry leaders.
Please contact 4th and 5th Grade Ministry Team leaders (Pat & Betty Hart) or the church office with any questions you may have.
