Birth - Kindergarten
Welcome to PCBC Kids!
Our early childhood ministry is all about showing kids they are deeply loved by their families, their church, and by God. Infants and toddlers are introduced to these concepts through attentive and compassionate care, the joy of play, singing together, and hearing Bible stories. It’s a thrill to watch our preschoolers and kindergarteners learn Scripture by exploring and creating through exciting hands-on activities. As our church family grows, our continued prayer is for every child at PCBC to experience the love of God in a genuine and lasting way, and to follow Jesus every day.
Beginning August 29, 2018
We welcome your child to Awana!
PCBC’s Kids Ministry wants to equip parents to raise kids to follow Jesus every day. We simplify that for our kids with one phrase: “Love Jesus; love others.” Awana is designed to help children hide God’s Word in their hearts with the aid of unique curriculum, age-appropriate games and activities, and helpful incentives to keep them going in their Scripture memory.
Who can attend Awana?
Awana at PCBC is for children 3 years old by August 29, 2018 through those who are in 4th Grade. You do not have to be a member of PCBC for your child to be a part of Awana.
May I drop my child off at Awana?
Parents must stay on campus while their child attends Awana. For those parents not volunteering in the program, we offer a wide range of classes on Wednesday at Park Cities.

Beginning August 29, 2018
For over 70 years, the PCBC Children’s Choir Ministry has been encouraging children to love, follow, and serve Jesus. Each week, trained directors and volunteers teach hundreds of our children how to lead in worship, ingraining God’s Word upon their hearts and minds with great hymns and songs of faith that bring generations together. We welcome all children ages 2 through 6th grade to learn to sing praises for a lifetime! You do not have to be a member of PCBC for your child to be a part of choir! We ask that you stay on campus while your child attends choir.
*By May 15
A parent or other responsible adult must accompany each child in 2-year-old choir. There is an enrollment limit in this choir only because of the interactive curriculum.

Better Moms Make a Better World.
WHO: MOPS is an organization open to ALL mothers of children from birth through kindergarten. We also welcome mothers-to-be who are expecting their first child.
WHAT: The goal of our MOPS group is to provide support to mothers of preschoolers, and provide a place where moms can develop relationships with other moms who are going through the same phase of life. During each meeting, we have a speaker on topics relevant to marriage, child-rearing and personal growth. We also have small-group time to allow moms to share with each other and develop relationships. While the moms meet, our children meet in classes of their own where they will enjoy crafts & playtime and learn about the Bible. (Childcare space is limited).
WHEN: We meet every other Monday morning during the school year, 9:15-11:45am.
WHERE: 3rd floor of the Community Life Center (CLC) at PCBC

FLIGHT PLAN 252
And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. - Luke 2:52
Flight Plan 252 is the partnership between PCBC and parents as we desire to serve as a resource to help as you disciple your children. It offers a guide for your family’s faith journey – beginning before birth and ending with high school graduation, when your kids launch into the next phase of their lives. In each life stage, Flight Plan 252 offers practical steps that you can take to develop a strong, lasting faith in your child’s life, through:
Parent Practices – conversations and activities with your family to develop faith skills.
Church Partnerships – seminars and classes at PCBC to teach concepts that you can reinforce at home.
Celebration Moments – memory-making moments that will solidify your child’s spiritual heritage.
