THERE ARE LOTS OF WAYS TO GET CONNECTED!
One of the best ways to get connected is by attending a Discover PBC class, joining a Life Group, and by actively serving in a ministry to make an eternal difference. Pray and ask God if He would have you join the PBC family. What Life Group is He leading you to? How is He calling you to serve?
If you need one-on-one help finding God’s place for you to serve in a PBC ministry or you want to get connected, please contact Pam Janney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Life Groups at PBC are made up of small groups of people doing life together. Jesus came that we might have life. Life is all about Living In Faith Every day, Living In Fellowship Every day, and Living In Freedom Every day. The way we grow together as a church family is through these groups.
Life Groups consist of these four functions:
Find or start a Life Group! Life Groups at PBC help you do life with other people and grow in your walk with God. Life Groups meet at different times in multiple locations. We have Life Groups that meet every Sunday morning at 9:30 AM, along with many groups that meet during the week i.e., young couples, singles, men’s, women’s etc. Life Groups help you experience the abundance of life together and connect with other people! If you are interested in joining a group, please fill out the response card on Sunday morning, and place it in one of the black boxes as you leave.
Life Group Leadership: We believe that real-life change takes place in the context of relationships. As a Life Group Leader, you have the greatest opportunity to connect with others, fulfill your passions, develop your gifts, and live out the Great Commission. You must be a member of PBC to lead a Life Group. If you are interested in becoming a member or if you are not sure if you are a member, please come to Discover PBC or contact the church office for more information.
