Ministries

The Bible makes clear that as followers of Jesus Christ we are children of our Heavenly Father. We belong to him, and we belong to one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.  Every single one of us has an important part to play and together we tell the story of Jesus in a way that we could not express alone.

We don’t grow or mature in Christ without community. The life of Christ is not lived out individually but rather through relationships with other people.  Our encouragement at PBCC is always to be involved in a smaller community where we can apply what we know into how we live with others through loving, serving, forgiving, accepting, and speaking.

There are a variety of ministries and communities here at PBCC in which you can connect, serve and grow in your faith.  Check here and on the  Serving page to discover all that is going on.

Growth Groups

At PBCC, our primary aim is to know Jesus and make him known. One of our family values for fulfilling this goal is discipleship through relationships. PBCC aims to be a discipling community because in the Great Commission of Matthew 28, Jesus commands his followers to do one thing – make disciples. Making disciples requires authentic relationships, because only life-on-life, with the help of the Holy Spirit, can provide the necessary ingredients to enact real-life transformation. At PBCC, small groups…

Men

Men’s Ministry at PBCC exists to provide a place where men can both come to know Jesus as Lord and also learn how God works in their daily lives as they are transformed through the work of the Spirit. This is done by offering a variety of activities including Bible Studies, Small Groups, and Retreats. Our goal is to see men “grow in wisdom and stature,” and to see this growth manifest itself in the way men relate to God…

Women’s Ministries

Welcome Women!  At PBCC, both at large and in Women’s Ministries specifically, we continue to be committed to helping people grow in Christ deeply and share God’s love widely.  Generally we grow in maturity and fullness in Christ through the study of His Word, through relationships with others and through serving Him.  Women’s small group Bible studies can be a key component in our spiritual transformation, so they’re an integral part of Women’s Ministries.  Our small groups are open to…

Visual Arts Ministry

Art and artists have a place in the life and worship of the Christian community.  Our God is a creative God who made physical matter with substance, function, and beauty.  He gave man the ability to be creative, honoring Him with the objects of beauty we make.  Art that reflects truths about our Lord and our faith in physical form, gives us tangible encouragement, help us focus on and trust in what we cannot see, and allows us to expand…

Young At Heart

If you feel “young at heart” your age doesn’t matter!  We are a diverse group of adults; married, widowed and single, who love to have fun and fellowship together. We like good food, music, meeting new people and making friends.  We’ll enjoy a meal together and have a short program that is inspirational, educational and entertaining. Don’t miss this great opportunity to spend a couple of hours with friends.  Our friendly team loves to serve you and have fun too!…

High School

PBCC’s high school group, LIGHTS, is a church family which seeks an honest faith lived out through relationship, worship, service, and compassion. In a world of loveless discussion and wounded people, we desire to follow Jesus through the darkness of every day and into abundant life. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.…

Middle School

Middle School is a very difficult and life-shaping time for most young teens and pre-teens. We are here to help our kids navigate this season in life and to encourage, support and teach what it means to live in relationship with the living God through His Son Jesus Christ.   We have more reason to celebrate than anyone else on Earth; the party’s here! God has given us the gift of life, value, identity and total acceptance. So we celebrate this…

Young Couples

The Young Couples Ministry at PBCC is for dating, engaged, and married couples (with or without children) in the early years of their relationship.  Our desire is to help couples grow in their faith, in their marriage, and develop friendships that last a lifetime.  We  enjoy gathering for various social activities, and meet regularly as a study and fellowship group twice a month on every-other Thursday.  We are a loving community that delights in being together, encouraging one another, and…
