JPC Families!


We’ve got several great things going on and coming up for Children, Youth, and Families at JPC! Summer VBS program planning is in the works and will be right around the corner, so be looking for more info to come! Please reach out to Jane for any more information, or if you would be willing to volunteer with these programs in the life of the church.


Worship & Prayer Buddies: We have been offering a youth program on worship after the children’s sermon on Sunday mornings. It will go until Palm Sunday, April 2nd, and as part of the goal of the program, the kids and youth will be transitioning back to staying in worship after the children’s sermon on Palm Sunday. Going along with this, we are planning to have a Worship & Prayer Buddy program that will pair an adult with each kid or youth (Elementary & Middle School) who would like to be a part of this starting the Sunday before Palm Sunday – March 26th. They will have the opportunity to sit together in worship occasionally, join for other times that JPC kids & youth meet, and commit to be in prayer for them each week. Adults who are willing and interested, please sign up with Jane by March 19th. You can email her at If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask Jane!


Lenten Meditation/Prayer Series: Children & Youth will not meet on March 12 & March 19 (over Spring Break), but will meet the last 2 Sundays (March 26 & April 2) from 5:30-6 PM. This has been a great opportunity for children, youth, and families to participate in an intergenerational Lenten prayer time that includes music, readings, and silent prayer. Children & youth join the adults for the beginning and ending parts and go with Jane to the youth room for the middle portion. We will plan to have a soup & bread dinner together after the last session (April 2nd) to close the series as we look forward to Easter!
