Services

At PGCC you can expect to be welcomed by everyone you meet as soon as you walk in the door. There’s no dress code here, and we don’t expect you to be perfect, either. Simply come as you are – but we guarantee that you won’t leave as you came.

Sunday School

Before the main service on Sunday, you have an opportunity to learn at a more personal level with your peers. We offer classes at 9:45 a.m. for every age group. There is both a co-ed and a ladies-only adult class, as well as classes for the youth (high school and middle school), the younger children, and nursery.

Sunday Worship Service

At 11:00 a.m. every week we come together to learn about and worship God. Here you will be able to freely worship through music, preaching and opportunities to give. No two weeks are exactly the same as you can expect both traditional and contemporary music styles as well as fresh, challenging sermons about the things that matter.

Nursery

We offer a nursery ministry to be of service to families with infants. Our experienced volunteers will take care of your infant children during Morning Worship.  All of our nursery volunteers go through a screening process with the Virginia State Police.

Tots’ Church

During our Sunday Morning Worship, we also provide a Tots’ Church for children ages 3-6.  After our pastor shares a children’s sermon with them (called “Time With My Buddies”) they are then released to go to the Christian Education Wing for a time of games, snacks, and a lesson in God’s Word complete with crafts, again overseen by our screened, experienced volunteers.

Wednesday Family Night

Opportunities to learn and to build lasting friendships are available on Wednesday evenings at Family Night. For the children it’s our KFC group – Kids For Christ. There is an exciting 29eleven Youth Ministry for the teenagers (the 29eleven is for Jeremiah 29:11 – check it out!) – full of games, music, and fun (yet important) lessons for life. The adults also get together to pray, sing, and then chat about God, faith, and life in general.

You may also participate in a covered-dish meal shared beforehand. There’s nothing like eating dinner with people who value your friendship – so come on out and bring a friend or two . . . or even the whole family!

Beliefs

God

We believe in one, holy, eternal God. This God has revealed Himself in many ways, but most clearly through the Written Word of the Holy Bible and in the person of Jesus Christ. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Hebrews 1:1-3; Colossians 1:15)

The Bible

We believe the Word of God as recorded in the Old and New Testaments is infallible, and is sufficient rule and guide for living a Christian life. (2 Timothy 3:16)

Humanity

We believe that mankind is of sinful nature, separated from God by this sin, and in need of being reconciled to God. (Psalm 14:2-3; Isaiah 59:2; Romans 3:23-24)

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ the Righteous is He who makes this reconciliation possible, and that there is no other way by which we can be made right with God. (2 Corinthians 5:18-19; 1 Timothy 2:5; John 14:6; Acts 4:12)

Salvation – God’s Offer

We believe in the necessity of each individual entering into a personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ; for although we are all God’s creations, it is only through this personal faith relationship that we can become children of God. (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12)

Salvation – Our Response

We believe that our response to this free gift of salvation is to make Jesus Christ the Lord of our lives, following Him in all we do, reading His Word, and worshiping Him in order to become His disciples. (John 8:31-32; John 15:5; Romans 12:1-2)

The Holy Spirit

We believe that it is God’s Holy Spirit (Who is given to all believers) Who guides us into these truths – indeed into all truth – and Who comforts and empowers us for our ministry. (Acts 2:38-39; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 1 John 4:13; John 14:16-17; John 16:13; Ephesians 3:20; John 14:18-31)

Tuition & Registration

Open registration – on a first come, first served basis – begins February 15. All registration forms must be accompanied by a non-refundable $40.00 registration fee. This fee holds a place for your child, as well as helping to cover supply costs.

Tuition for the 2014-15 school year has been kept at $120.00 per month for the 3 year-old class (three-day program), and $170.00 per month for the 4 year-old class (five-day program). Payment is due on the last Thursday of each month, August through April. Checks are to be made payable to “Prince George Christian Preschool.” A payment envelope will be sent home monthly as a reminder. A one-time Supply Fee of $50 per student for the three-day class and $65 per student for the five-day class is also required at the beginning of the year.

The budget of Prince George Christian Preschool is determined by enrollment and tuition payments. Because of this, we regret that we cannot make any tuition deductions for absenteeism, vacations, or inclement weather closings.
