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 (6th grade-12th grade) have their own class.
For Fall 2022:
In the book, “Just Like Jesus,” author Max Lucado asks, “What if, for one day, Jesus were to become you? What if, for twenty-four hours, Jesus wakes up in your skin, walks in your shoes, lives in your house, assumes your school, work, and activity schedule? Your friends? With Jesus fully in you, what would you be like? What would you think? How would you interact with your parents, teachers, friends, social media? Would your family and friends notice any changes? How would your day be different?” These are just a few of the questions we will ponder together as we learn that God calls and empowers us to take on the very “characteristics of Jesus” in our daily lives and interactions.
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 organizing Ultimate 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.
