1st - 5th Grade
Our elementary students thrive in interactive Bible studies, group times, and intentional conversations about the Gospel and faith. Children at this stage of the journey begin to realize their own sin and personal need for a Savior. Their questions create a multitude of opportunities to have meaningful discussions about the Gospel of Christ! Our goal during this season is to partner with parents in sharing the Gospel message regularly and to instill a love for serving others.
Introducing Kid's Collective!
PCBC’s Wednesday night program for 1st-5th graders that’s designed to give kids a holistic picture of what it looks like to worship the Lord—and to have fun, too.
What is Kids Collective?
Kids Collective combines two of PCBC’s most-loved kids’ programs, Children’s Choir and the scripture memory model from AWANA – using The Gospel Project, our churchwide scripture reading and memory platform.
How Does Kids Collective Work?
We start with the Music component and progress to Scripture and then to Worship Arts. Our teaching staff will safely move kids between sessions through the evening.
Part 1 - Music
Focusing on worship through music—playing musical instruments, movement, singing songs, games, and more.
Part 2 - Scripture
A deeper dive into the Bible story and scripture memory verse from the previous Sunday – following the Gospel Project reading plan that we are following as a church.
Part 3 - Worship arts
Kids choose their top three track options and they will rotate through two of them during the semester.
Tracks include art, woodworking, cooking/hospitality, skits/drama, vocals, Kids Worship team, photography, Legos, and more. They can even choose to learn how to operate the soundboard so they can help with Kids Worship on Sunday mornings.
The worship arts tracks aim to teach kids how to use their specific gifts and talents to honor and worship God.
Come and enjoy the complete Kids Collective experience! We’ll learn to worship God with our whole lives and use our gifts sand talents for Him.
*Preschool and kindergarten students will continue with choir and AWANA.
We are an active, fun-loving community of all ages and skill levels who relish the thrill of competition and the camaraderie it encourages with others. Adults and children as young as preschool aged participate in our PCBC team sports leagues, camps, and exercise programs offered all year long. Our programs are accessible to those in our church family as well as members of the surrounding community. For many, it is their first introduction to PCBC and an open door to finding a new church home. We love how sports and recreation bring people of all walks of life together!
