Welcome to Children’s Ministry at PBC Cupertino. We love kids and are delighted to be part of their lives. Our ministry is kid-friendly and God-centered, and our goals are simple:
- Support families in the spiritual training of their children – be a place where every child grows in his or her love and understanding of God, the Bible and Christ.
- Provide a nurturing, kid-friendly place – be a place where every child thrives.
- Be relevant, relational, and fun – be a place where every kid wants to come.
We believe relationships are the key to ministry and so we put a premium on having many, loving adults interacting with the children. Our desire is to create a community for children – a comfortable environment where friendships are encouraged, where God is seen in their everyday world, and where age-appropriate, interactive learning is used. Our aim is to provide a loving foundation that prepares them for a life-changing relationship with Jesus.
