One of PCC’s core values is “Being Children and Youth Oriented” meaning we try to be intentional about including children and youth in the life of the church rather than making it an atmosphere that is only for adults. Any volunteer working with youth must have up to date background clearance on file with the church office.
During Sunday School, the youth (7th grade-12th grade) have their own class.
Various special events for the youth include participation in the 30 Hour Famine, sponsored by World Vision; retreat at one of our church camps, Mission Meadows; CHIC – a national, week-long gathering of teens from all across the Evangelical Covenant denomination for discipleship, outreach and fun on the campus of the University of Tennessee. This event occurs once every three years; outings to nearby amateur hockey games.
During the summer months, Our youth participate in an outreach for youth in the community by organizingUltimate Frisbee games at an area park. At times over 50 youth attend where fun is had by all, but more importantly, relationships are developed and strengthened.
