The PBC Youth Ministry is a time for Middle and High-School Students to grow in their walks with God and in their relationships with one another through regularly Discipleship Groups, Monthly Activities, and Summer mission-camp opportunities.
We currently have two classes for students. One for Middle School and one for High School. We’d love for you to join us as we dive into the Word of God together and seek to align our lives with His Word.
One of our goals is to do monthly activities designed to engage students in a variety of fun ways. In the past, we have had a hayride/bonfire, pool party, D-Now overnight event, Christmas-themed progressive dinner, bowling, dodgeball and more. We’ve also served at Madison Fields, a farm that focuses on people with special needs, packed meals for Rise Against Hunger, and have served at the Frederick Rescue Mission.

We believe that students can make a difference in the world and in our community. We are still finalizing our plans for this coming summer, but this is what we’re working on:
- M-Fuge Philadelphia – June 19-24, 2023- Cost: $TBD – M-Fuge is a summer camp and mission trip all wrapped up together. There are crazy summer camp games, meaningful times of worship, and growth oriented Bible Studies – along with impactful opportunities to minister in the community. If you’re interested in going – contact Pastor Armal for more details.
- Adventures in Art Camp – July 10-14, 2023 – this is a summer camp for kids in grades 1-8 that PBC hosts. High School students are invited to help serve and make a difference in the lives of elementary and middle school students in our community.
