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.

Special Events

Welcome to the Kingdom of Light!

PCC All-Kids Easter Celebration
9:00 & 10:30 •  Easter Sunday, April 20th
 
On Easter Sunday our Lenten theme of “darkness into light” will come together in a Big Way! Children 2 years old through 5th grade will take part in a hands-on experience as they journey from the “kingdom of darkness & shadows”, where they are rescued by King Jesus. They will be invited into the King’s Banquet in the Kingdom of Light—a time of celebration that will include worship, special crafts, and of course, the King’s Feast!  
                                                                                                                                                                    
We have lots of great activities planned to help children experience the wonder and mystery of Jesus’ victory over the darkness of sin and death, and his welcoming into the goodness of God’s Kingdom. Volunteers are needed to make this all happen!  If you’d like to be part of this wondrous celebration, please contact Vikki Randall 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)

Children's Choir Musical

On Sunday, May 18th, at 10 am our Children's Choir will present the musical "Table of Five...Thousand". This will be a joint service (only 1 service for this Sunday) and there will be no Sunday School (both hours) because all kids are invited to join us in the 10 am worship service to enjoy the musical.
