Senior Scholarships

There are two scholarship available to graduating seniors that are planning on attending college next year.

  • The Elle-J Scholarship Fund is in honor of Ellis and Jaclyn Winborne honoring a PBC graduating senior in his/her pursuits of higher education.  PBC youth workers, church member, or youth group students will nominate a senior PBC student who shows compassion, acceptance, tolerance, steps outside their comfort zone, and sees all people solely for what is on the inside.  Those that make nominations are required to complete a NOMINATION FORM with examples of how the nominee demonstrates the characteristics.
  • The Clark Family Scholarship has been established in order to provide a one year scholarship to one graduating senior from Providence Baptist Church.  While academics are a part of the selection process, this scholarship focuses on many areas of your personal growth, academically, spiritually and personally.  The senior will need to fill out THE APPLICATION and submit it to be considered for the scholarship.

Nominations and applications are due to Catherine Trahan by May 28th.  You can leave them in the Student Committee mailbox or email them to her.  If you have any questions or need help with the forms, contact George.

High & Middle School Fusion

Every Wednesday, 6:00pm – 7:00pm

This is a fun and interactive look at the bible for High & Middle School Students.  We will gather together to start Fusion in the Chapmen Youth Room and then will break into small groups to discuss.  The focus for Fusion this spring will be:

FAMOUS: How to Leave a Legacy that Matters

In 1968, artist Andy Warhol wrote, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” With the explosion of the Internet and social media sites such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook (Live!), his prediction seems to becoming a reality.  Do we seek to be famous?  If so, what do we want to be known for?  What will be our personal legacy?  How do we know what God would have us do?

In 2017, Fusion will focus on twelve “random” men and women from the Bible that left a legacy that has lasted over 2000 years.  By learning more about these individuals, we hope to understand more about how God has given us special talents and gifts that we, too, can use to create a lasting legacy in God’s kingdom.  We also will be learning about spiritual disciplines and how they apply to our lives. Here are some of the upcoming topics!

Looking Ahead

Here are some of the events and activities that we have planned for this school year.  As we get closer to the events, they will move up to the Upcoming Events and Activities section and have all the details about how to get involved.

Mission Days

Mission Days is a way for students to get involved in mission work locally to earn credit towards their 2017 summer mission trip.  They will be volunteering with local agencies on projects within our community, or helping out with PBC mission activities.  Each activity will be initiated and led by one of (or a small group of) our high school students. The students will serve as the main point of contact for the project and will work with the Student Ministry Office to facilitate each event.  Students, if you have an idea for a mission project that you would like to suggest and lead, please reach out to GEORGE or SHEILA to discuss.

In order to receive any PBC funding for mission trips, students must complete at least 3 of the 7 Mission Days activities from now until May 2017.  Once they have completed at least 3 of the 4 hour Mission Days, they will receive a $500 credit towards their 2017 Mission Trip cost.  Here are the MissionDays scheduled this Spring:

April 29th – Annual Spring Refugee Store
May 20th – Ronald McDonald House

High School Beach Retreat

April 21st – 23rd, 2017 (Dates changed due to AP Exams)

The High School Students  will be traveling to Ocean Isle Beach for a weekend of reflection, rest and retreat.  We have rented two ocean front beach houses for the weekend, written some great small group material and are brining along a chef and a musician or two.  We will have a mix of group worship, small group dialogue and fun beach time!  All the details will be revealed under Upcoming Events and Activities when we get closer to the trip.

Middle School Madness

Middle School students plan on joining us for a variety activities and events following the 11:00am service on Sundays.  This is a chance to for you to get together with your fellow students and get out and have a little fun.  We will spending Sunday afternoons throughout the year doing everything from having games of dodgeball in the gym to catching a Checkers game to laser tag.  Here are the plans for this Spring:
