11 We pray that our God and Father and our Lord Jesus will prepare the way for us to come to you. 12 We pray that the Lord will make your love grow more and more for each other and for all people. We pray that you will love others as we love you and 13 that your hearts will be made strong. (1 Thess. 3:11-13a, ICB)

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.
