    Kids Collective | 1st-5th Grade

    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 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.

    6th Graders are able to take part in Carol Choir.

    “When children have church music instruction as part of their spiritual development, the blessing is powerful and lasts a lifetime.” - Karen Zukoski, PCBC Children’s Choir Coordinator

    Locations: Community Life Center/Pleitz Building/Choral Hall
    Contact: Karen Zukoski | | 214.860.1552

    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.

    “Going deeper on Wednesdays with what they’ve learned on Sundays equips kids as they learn the Bible, and also equips parents to dive into the weekly scripture with their kids.” – Jay Miller, PCBC Kids Minister

    Part 3 - Worship Arts

    Kids choose their top three track options and rotate through two of them during the semester. Tracks include art, woodworking, cooking/hospitality, skits/drama, vocals, Kids Worship team, photography, Legos, and more.

    “Worshipping the Lord is more than just singing, more than just scripture. It happens through every part of our lives, and we’re excited to encourage children to worship the Lord through their own unique gifts.” – Jay Miller

    Lifetime Classes for Adults

    The Book of Revelation in its Historical Setting

    The book of Revelation was written to Christians living in Asia Minor at the end of the first century. The images in this book, while strange to us, were readily recognizable to the original audience. We will explore what Revelation said to those Christians long ago. In so doing, we will begin to see what it still communicates to us regarding being faithful followers of Christ.

    Care and Recovery Groups

    Care and Recovery ministry at PCBC is about helping Christ followers who feel trapped by feelings, behaviors and thought patterns that leave them with shame, guilt, and despair, learn to worship, connect, serve and multiply.

    Our theme verse is Revelation 12:11: “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” Our ministry is about learning how to worship, connect, serve and multiply for real people who have real obstacles like mental health issues (depression, anxiety, bipolar), addictions (chemical, pornography, food, gambling), relationship struggles (codependency, abuse), and more.

    We meet once a week and we know that may not be enough for everyone, so we strive to help connect you to other groups and opportunities God might use to help you become all that He created you to be.
