PCC Kids' Ministry Volunteer Schedule for Spring & Summer 2015

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!

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 to the Cross: Sundays, Feb. 15 - April 5th, 9am in Fellowship Hall

Journey to the Cross is a great way for gradeschoolers to prepare for Lent and Easter in a fun, interactive way.  This year Ashley Thaxton will be leading the kids in a program using movement, drama and drums to prepare a cool visual representation of the themes we'll be studying during Lent.  The kids will be presenting their piece as part of the worship service on Easter Sunday (April 5th).  Join us Sundays at 9:00 in the Fellowship Hall (basement under the sanctuary).  There will be no Edge during Lent so the older kids can be a part of this program.  

Adult helpers are needed—email Vikki at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to help one or more Sundays.

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)
