Why Youth Ministry

Just because we live in a small rural community doesn’t mean the changing times don’t affect us. You don’t have to listen very long to hear the devastating message some of our kids are hearing in public schools and our colleges. Instead of teaching the golden rule, it seems as though many of our teachers and professors are on a different mission. Many feel the need to spread the word that there is no God. Or that we have evolved from apes. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The scariest part is most of our kids have not been taught the real truth of the Bible. When this is the case we are in danger of believing these lies. What are we to do about this? The Bible makes it very clear. We are to teach God’s Word to our children. We show them that, “Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.”

As Christians it is well past time to stand-up for Jesus in our homes, community and workplace. In this fast paced world of technology we need to give our kids a firm foundation. We at PCCC are taking this command seriously. Last week we introduced our new Family Life Minister, Zach Korff to our congregation. He is ready, willing and able to lead the charge to get our kids ready for all the challenges that life is throwing at them. He reminded us he cannot do this alone and he needs parents and others who feel God tugging at their hearts about this mission to join him.

We at PCCC invite parents and those of you without a church family to join us on this journey. Let’s work together to be about changing these times for the better! Take time to honor God. It will bring life to you and your family. For questions about this ministry you may call the office at 765-645-5058.
