Upcoming Events




REACH Jr 2022

CALLING ALL 3rd, 4th, & 5th GRADERS! Join us on Saturday, March 26th-Sunday, March 27th from noon to noon for REACH Jr!

REACH Jr. is an exciting event filled with fun, games, music, videos, food, and small group Bible Study for 3rd-5th graders.  It is hosted here at Providence Baptist Church and is led by SHINE Ministry leaders and some of our IMPACT Students.  The theme for this year's event is WHAT A MESS: Learning to Trust God When Life Gets Messy.  Our focal verse for the weekend: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” - Proverbs 3:5-6.
There is a charge of $20 which covers three meals, all supplies, and activities. Please pay by cash or check at the door. Participants just need to bring a Bible, sleeping bag, pillow, change of clothes, toiletries, and a positive attitude! :) We will take care of the rest!

Child Safety and Security

Providence Baptist Church takes the safety and security of children very seriously.  Each worker in our children's and preschool ministry areas must undergo a background check.  Furthermore, we use a secure computer check-in system to ensure the safety of our children.  

Children's Weekly Schedule

Grow Groups—Sunday 9:00am in the Family Life Center (FLC)

Children in kindergarten through 5th grade meet for large group worship with music and skits to introduce the "Bottom Line" for the week.  Afterwards, break into grade-based small groups to hear the day's Bible lesson and learn how to apply it to real life.

NOTE:  Children (K-5th grade) will attend Grow Groups during the same hour their parents do.  They will then attend the "big church" worship service at 10:30am with their parents — observing adults in worship and participating in the same is an extremely valuable component of spiritual formation.

LIFE Groups for Kids—Wednesday 6:30pm in the Family Life Center (FLC)

Through a short lesson, video, and games, children learn about prayer, Bible study, missions, and how they can spread the love of God in the world.


Everything that SHINE does — Sunday Worship and Grow Groups, Wednesday LIFE Groups, and special events — is designed to reinforce or teach one of our three key values for SHINE:

God loves everyone, including me.
God wants me to love others.
God gives me family and friends to help me grow.
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will SHINE among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.
Philippians 2:14-16

Want to Get Involved?

SHINE Children's Ministry relies on God to teach and care for our children through volunteers from our church body. Christ taught his disciples to do what they knew best, and above else, to trust in him. From feeding the multitudes to rowing across a lake, when we do our part and trust in God, he works through us and ultimately grows our faith. You needn't have some special set of skills in order to positively impact the children in our church — merely a love for young souls and faith that God can and will supply what you need to serve in this capacity. Please contact Jennifer Pyne jenniferpyne@pbcharrisburg.org for information on how to start the volunteer process.
