Deacons

The word deacon is derived from the Greek word diakonos, which simply means servant.

The Deacon Ministry at PBC is centered on service. The Deacon Body is service-driven and not an administrative board. The main function of the deacons at PBC is to carry out the Family Ministry Plan, support the pastor, support the staff and support the Church through faithful attendance and prayer.

Music

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing. Psalm 100:2

Adult Choir
The adult choir is a 30 voice choral group that provides leadership during the worship hour and also presents special musical presentations throughout the year at PBC. We are always looking for new members willing to learAn more about sharing their musical gifts to lift songs of praise to God. We meet at 7:00 on Wednesday evenings for a weekly rehearsal and always welcome anyone that would like to visit either to listen or to participate.

Children’s Choir
PBC has a fully graded children’s choir program. There are opportunities for ages 4 years through the 6th grade. During the years of children’s choir, children will learn about the Savior that we have in Jesus Christ while also learning basic musical skills. Our ultimate goal is that children will be able to have a rudimentary knowledge of music reading by the time they enter the 7th grade and that they will commit to continuing using their musical talent to involve themselves in the music ministry of the church.

Preschool

“Let the little children come to me…”  Mark 10:14
Quality and constructive child-care for our youngest preschoolers is provided in a safe, well-tended area from birth through three years of age.

Each parent is given a silent pager in order for the Preschool Leader to contact them if necessary. The pager is returned when the parent picks up their child following the worship service.
During the worship hour children four years of age to school age attend Little Big Church which provides preschool training for sanctuary worship. These children in Little Big Church learn to be attentive and learn what to expect in “big church.”
Preschool Coordinators supervise the preschool department ad plan activities for the children.

We believe that it is equally important to teach those of every age about Christ. Our Preschool program centers on teaching the fundamentals in an engaging, safe environment.

Children

“Train up a child in the way he should go…” Proverbs 22:6

We have fun in the Children’s Department. Under the experienced leadership of a Children’s Ministry Team. The children have goals for their Bible Study and fun learning to grow in their Christian nurturing. Join them! There is a place for you and your children. JOIN US!

Youth Students

A variety of ministries for all different kinds of students!  Come join the fun in The Well!

Adults

Working together works!
“Enjoy your life—it’s later than you think.

“We’ll be happy when …We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get our act together and start enjoying salvation. The truth is there’s no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when? Your life will always be filled with challenges. It’s best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyways. Jesus is the way. So, treasure every moment that you have and treasure it more because you shared it with PBC, special enough to spend your time with … and remember that time waits for no one.”

We have different studies to help you grow in your faith, no matter where you are in walk with Christ now. See our “Current Bible Studies” Page for more information.

Senior Adults

Aging gratefully as well as gracefully.
 Our Senior Adults are active:

Second Tuesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. – The “Ain’t Done Yet” (ADY) club meets. The ADY is sponsored by PBC for the purpose of promoting fellowship among retired people and others in our church and community. A covered dish luncheon and program are the highlight of the gathering.

Our Senior Adults are a vital, active group in our community and church. They are truly young at heart, taking part in many activities. See our “Services and Events” page for more information.

Operation Inasmuch

 

Operation Inasmuch is a national organization based on the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40: “Inasmuch as you did it [fed the hungry, healed he sick, clothed the naked, visited the imprisoned], you did it for me.” Over 2,000 churches across the nation utilize Operation Inasmuch’s model of community service. Pintlala Baptist Church participates in the community action two different days a year and offers services of home repair and small construction projects, yard work, medical clinic, yard sale giveaway, food bags, litter pick-up, car wash and clinic and many other projects. Margaret Dunn spearheads this active, productive and intergenerational service day.

Most importantly, we will explore the depths of God’s character as it is communicated through the Bible. Our definition of “young” is very flexible, so come join us!
