Families are vital to Pasadena Covenant because spiritual formation begins in the home. We seek to support you and your kids by providing quality programs and opportunities for parents and children to connect with God, our church community, and the broader world. There are many ways for children and families to connect at PCC.

Our Mission

Look UP! celebrating what God is doing

Look OUT! reaching out to others

Look Around! investing deeply in relationships 

Look for us on facebook

PasCov parents:  Please look for us on facebook: "Pasadena Covenant Family Ministries". Join the conversation as we explore new ways to "go deep" with our kids during our Journey to the Promised Land!

Nursery

Infants – 0 - 23 month in the nursery   Nusery

The youngest members of our church family (ages 0 - 23 months) learn about God's love in simple ways:  through a warm and caring welcome, a gentle hug, a laugh, a smile.

A room for nursing moms (with video feed from worship) is available in the lobby of the sanctuary as well.

2's & 3's begin their time in the Godly Play Story Room.  Godly play is an interactive, hands-on storytelling program that emphasizes worship, wonder, and expriencing God's presence.  After the story they return to their classroom for snack, crafts and free play. 

Ages 4 Years Old - 5th Grade Begin in the Worship Service

We strive to be a multigenerational church, singing a mix of contemporary songs and hymns and finding ways for all generations to seek and experience God together.

After dismissal from the worship service, kids in grades one through five have a fun and interactive time, discussing and asking questions about our faith and engaging in lots of hands-on crafts, games and other activities. Their time together includes both large group Bible study and small group follow-up. On the first Sunday of each month, the children in grades 1 - 5 stay in the worship to participate in the Communion service.

Special Events

PasCov Kids' Ministry

On Sunday mornings (10:30 am) PCC Kids' Ministry will begin a three-part series using fun, interactive elements to help kids see the grace and goodness of Christ in the grand arc of Scripture:
2014-15:  Journey TO the Promised Land (seeing the hope of Christ in the biblical narratives)
2015-16:  Journey IN the Promised Land (learning from Jesus' parables how to live as a community in the Kingdom of God)
2016-17:  Journey FROM the Promised Land (learning from Acts & the Epistles what it means to share God's love with a broken & beautiful world)
 
To join our team and be a part of this journey, contact Vikki Randall at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Journey IN the Promised Land ·  God's Big Welcome  · Sunday mornings at 10:30am

We've arrived! Last year we studied the Journey TO the promised land—stories from the Old Testament of how God led his people. Now the excitement begins: we've arrived in the Promised Land, and JESUS is here! In April we will focus on Jesus' teachings and answer the question: who is Jesus?

 CANCELLED! Narnia Adventure  All-Church Camp-Out  Monrovia Canyon Park • Fri-Sun, June 24-26, 2016 

Sadly, as you have probably seen on the news, Monrovia Cnyn Park is currently closed due to the Duarte fire, so the all-church camp-out scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled. We were able to preserve one treasured aspect of the camp-out: the Parents & Adults' night out/ kids sleepover Saturday night for gradeschoolers (Parents & Adults' night out/kids sleepover is for those who had already signed up). The kids Sunday School June 26th has been uncancelled— we'll be having a "campfire" worship time led by Thomas Hale at 10:30 am for all the kids in Logosland. For more info about the sleepover/parents night out, contact Vikki at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Join our Kids' Ministry Team!  Volunteers needed for summer & fall • particularly for our adorable 2 & 3 year olds!

More than 50 kids are a part of our ministry every Sunday—growing, learning, and responding to the truth of God's love. We have an amazing team that is blessed to watch them grow, hear their often profound questions, and see how God is at work in these young lives. We need volunteers to join our team with all ages, but particularly for the 2 and 3 year old class. A great way to sample this ministry and see what it's all about is with summer Sunday School—no planning or prep is needed, just come alongside to serve as mentor and friend to our kids. This summer we'll be meeting together on the courtyard for "stories by the sea"—experiencing Jesus' parables—led by Colleen Thaxton and Vikki Randall. You can volunteer 2, 3 or more Sundays—just contact Vikki at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Family Ministry Opportunity • Door of Hope birthday Club

Birthday Club is an easy, fun, and meaningful ministry which the whole family can do together! The first Friday of each month our team provides a simple birthday party for the children & families at Door of Hope.  Door of Hope is a Christ Centered ministry to equip homeless families in our neighborhood to rebuild their lives.  The families on our birthday club team volunteer 3 or  4 Fridays out of the year to provide a cake, game or craft as part of the birthday celebration.  This is an important way we have been able to build relationships with these families.  We’re looking to expand the team in 2014, for more information about how you can be a part, contact Vikki Randall at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Jump Start Back-to-School Daycamp, August 1-5, 9am-12:30pm 

Jump Start is a back-to-school daycamp held at Pasadena Covenant Church each year for the neighborhood kids. Our focus is on building literacy and math skills through fun, hands-on activities. The kids are already asking about when the next camp will be.
