Welcome to Children's Ministry @PDCPC!
Our goal is to help our children connect with God, with others, and with the world through Christ.
We do this through a variety of programs that celebrate the age and stage of a child's life & bring the message of Jesus to their world in very practical & relatable ways. We sing, dance, read stories, do art, have discussions, play games, eat snacks... after all, following Jesus is anything but dull & we want our kids to think about church as being a place that is full of adventure & life.
Birth-3 years old- Nursery Care & The Family Room.
If you have a child who is birth-preschool aged, we have set up a special Nursery & Family Room where you are welcome to take your child so that he/she can play with age appropriate toys & run around while you attend the worship service. The nursery is staffed with trained and screened staff, so you can be assured that your children are in the best of hands.
If your child is not ready to be dropped off, feel free to stay in the Nursery & Family Room and watch a live broadcast of the worship service on a big screen TV.
The family room is equipped with a changing table, crib, role-play toys, and other age-appropriate games and activities for infants-toddlers.
3 years old (potty trained) - 5th Grade
Children in Preschool to Grade 5 begin the worship service in the Sanctuary with their families and are dismissed to Sunday School from there.
Once they are dismissed, kids go with our Children's Director to their classrooms where they hear a Bible story, do some activities related to the story of the day, sing some songs, play games, and connect with their leaders. Children are picked up at their classrooms in the Family Life Center once church is over.
Join us for Sprouts Wednesday Clubhouse, a fun and engaging mid-week program for kids birth-5th grade where they can explore their faith through Bible stories, music, games, and conversation. Dinner is included, free of charge!
Every Wednesday, September 19 2018- May 29, 5:30pm-7:15pm.
We take the safety of our children very seriously. All teachers are required to submit to a thorough background check. In addition, all teacher helpers must attend training and must adhere to our Church's Safe Sanctuary policies.

We have a brand new Children's Library stocked with books that will inspire learning, curiosity, and growth in our kids. We are happy to have the library open every Sunday following the worship service, and every Wednesday for the Summer Program. Children (and their parents!) can check out books to take home & bring them back once they have finished with them.
