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.
Together, we have the opportunity to IMMERSE ourselves in God’s Word through IMMERSE’s the POETS…Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, and Lamentations, during the Sunday Cool hour and worship service beginning, Sunday, Jan. 9. Together, we will begin with a short video in the Fellowship Hall, then break into smaller adult groups (The teens will break separately and be guided by Mike Kiehl) for discussion of the questions below. Before time ends, we will gather back together for a time of further sharing and reflection.
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.
