The PB&J Challenge is for children at Park Place who are in the 5th and 6th Grade. Through this challenge, it is our prayer that children develop a thriving and growing relationship with God instead of one that is stagnant. The desire for spiritual growth in our children is at the heart of this challenge.
PB&J stands for Prayer, Bible Study, and Journaling. The children who participate in this challenge are committing to have 150 days of personal quiet time, consisting of at least 5 minutes each of Prayer, Bible Study, and Journaling, from January through July. At the beginning of this challenge, every child who participates is assigned an Encouragement Partner at the church, who prays for their specific child throughout the challenge.
This Challenge is for children who faithfully attend the 5-6 Grade Sunday School class at PPBC.
The Challenge runs from January through July of each year. To successfully complete the challenge, children must have a quality personal devotion time consisting of Bible Study, Prayer, and Journaling for 150 of these days.
By far, the most important result of this challenge would be the strengthened faith of each child who participates and the establishment of a daily quiet time with God. To celebrate this, we take an end-of-summer trip to Great Wolf Lodge in LaGrange, GA for each child who completes the Challenge. This trip is primarily funded by special Financial Partners from the church.
Children can begin signing up for the PB&J Challenge in Sunday School towards the end of the year. Any child who expresses interest will receive additional information in the mail.
