In Matthew 28, Jesus Christ gave his church a very clear mission when he said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” We would love to come alongside you during your college years as you figure out how your life fits into God’s great story. As you become a disciple of Christ, we want to help you to get involved in making disciples, whether that’s on campus, at our church, around the city, or around the world.

Being Missional on Sunday
College students can be an incredible blessing to the ministry of PCPC on Sunday mornings. Here are a number of options.
• The Nursery – Volunteers are needed to care for babies, toddlers, and young children while parents attend corporate worship and Sunday school. This may sound fun or terrifying to you, but it’s an awesome ministry and a huge blessing to the church. You can be involved once a month or more often. Contact Gale Emerson to find out how to get involved.
• Children’s Ministry – Volunteers in children’s ministry assist with Sunday school for children up through 4th grade. A great team of parents and young adults serves in children’s ministry, and you would be blessed getting to work with these people. Contact Heather Squibb if you are interested.
• Middle School Ministry – 5th through 8th graders meet at at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays in “The Hangout.” Volunteers are crucial for building relationships with the students and facilitating small group discussion and teaching. Contact Christen Nutter for more information about volunteering with youth.
• High School Ministry – 9th through 12th graders have their Sunday school at 11:00 a.m. As with middle school, there are different ways to volunteer with high school students. You could be a Sunday morning volunteer, you could be a small group co-leader, you could be involved in short-term mission trips and retreats. Contact Christen Nutter for more information.
• PCPC Choir - A number of college students sing with the choir in the Sunday morning worship services. You don’t have to sing a solo if you’re not ready! Contact J. Marty Cope to learn more.
