At PFC we understand ministry to be something that happens corporately and individually; inside and outside of our faith community. Church serves as a place where we educate, equip and encourage each other to take the truth and love of Christ into the spaces where we each live, work and play. There are also things that we can uniquely accomplish together to bless those beyond our own local church community. Below you will find the current ministries of PFC arranged in tabs. Please peruse them. Perhaps you will find a gap in them. If so, it may be the beginning of God calling you…

Sunday School

Sunday School is for all ages, from 3 year olds to adults. Sunday School meets from 10 to 10:45am. Children’s classes use crafts, music, Bible stories, and more to teach students how to walk in relationship with God. All classes use faith-based curricula to develop the faith of those seeking God. For more information on Sunday School up to 5th grade speak with our Director of Children's Ministry, Brandi Russell. For information on junior/senior high and adult Sunday School, speak with our PFC Elders or contact the church office.

Nursery

Nursery is provided during both the Worship Services and the Sunday School hours. Children will have the opportunity to hear a story from the Bible, play, listen to music, and do crafts during this time. Nursery is provided for infants through 3-year-olds, and loving servants of God care for the children. Nursery is also offered for various other events; please contact Brandi Russel for further information.

Junior Church

Junior Church is provided during our 11am service. Pre-kindergarten to 1st grade are dismissed for this ministry after the Sunday morning announcement time. Children interact with a story from the Bible, sing, and do crafts. Second grade through 5th grade participate in Junior Church during the sermon portion of the service, engaging in biblical learning and activities. Brandi Russell directs Junior Church.

PFC Kid's Nights

Three times a year, PFC kids get together for a great time of music, fun, and learning.

If you have questions, speak with our Director of Children's Ministry, Brandi Russell.

Bible Studies

Various Bible studies are offered throughout the week at PFC. If you are interested in getting connected to a midweek time of study and fellowship, please contact the church office, for information on the current studies being offered.

Take Them A Meal

PFC Kids' Summer Nights

This is a highlight of the church year for our children as well as the adults who volunteer. Usually held in July, this week-long program meets for two hours each evening. A multitude of volunteers are needed to provide a quality Summer Nights Event for kids: station leaders, crew leaders, decorating committee, and many more. The congregation can also participate by donating needed materials.

Halloween Night Pit Stop

Parker Ford Church provides a Halloween Night Pit Stop for parents and kids each year on October 31. Trick-or-Treaters and their moms and dads are able to stop by PFC to use the restrooms, grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, and increase their candy count. There are free family pictures of kids in their costumes as well as several opportunities for children to win prizes.

Stitchers in Christ

This is a ministry at PFC where a group of people in the congregation, get together and use needlework as an expression of love and encouragement to others. The idea is very traditional: crocheting, knitting or sewing to craft shawls, lap robes, baby blankets, etc., to wrap a recipient with God’s love and comfort through prayers said during the creative process and those sent along with the completed item. They meet the first Saturday of every month, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you are interested in get involved or would like more information, please contact Bette Wenger.

Folks in need of a meal are bused from Pottstown to Coventry Christian School where they enjoy a great community night including food, music, prayer and a brief devotional. Food and clothes as well as other resources are often available. This night has become a spiritual highlight for many people in our area! Contact Jeri Lovatt for details.
