Sports & Recreation

Sports & Recreation

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!

Men's Basketball

Our Men's Basketball League is an eight week season that's played in the Fall and Spring. Teams are split into two leagues, competitive and recreational. Our league is also geared to form community and help the men grow in Christ. A quick devotional and prayer is done before every game to remind us men that we are to glorify God in all we do.
