The desire of Providence Baptist Church is to be a place where children of all ages feel at home while learning about Jesus. PBC wants to partner with families in leading babies through sixth graders to grow closer to Jesus. PBC Kids teaches children about Jesus and His love for them by playing and singing, hearing Bible stories and developing relationships. It is important to us to provide a safe, nurturing environment where your young one can take their first steps toward faith. We want your kids to love coming to church!Let us know how we can help you as you get plugged into PBC Kids!
