PKC - Presbyterian Kids Connection PKC is for all children age “toddler”-5th grade, and is a precursor to our PYC (Pres. Youth Connection/ 6th-12th grade) We seek to involve children & their parents in a “Family” style ministry which provides opportunities once a month during the school year/ and randomly throughout the summer. Our programs cover a broad range including: fun, food, fellowship, games, Bible lessons, mission outreach, and building upon a solid foundation of family & Christian values. Friends, neighbors, and other family members are always welcome to any PKC event. Since we are a “family” style ministry, we do ask that each child/children be accompanied by a guardian (parent, grandparent, babysitter, etc) so that you can help your child/children get the most out of our quality programming, while tailoring it for their individual interests & needs.
YOUTH MINISTRIES Emily Donovan, Director of Youth Ministries
PYC = Presbyterian Youth Connection We are the youth of Little Chapel on the Boardwalk in grades 6-12. We are the next generation of disciples. Our strategy is simple. We center all our teachings on this verse: "Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins." 1 Peter 4:8. Connect with us--it just might change your life.

MUSIC MINISTRIES David Lee Heinzman, Director of Music Ministries
“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all ye lands!”
No matter your age, interest or level of musical experience, The Little Chapel on the Boardwalk Presbyterian Church has an outlet for you to “make a joyful noise to the Lord.” By drawing upon all styles of sacred music and by offering a variety of music ensembles, all are welcomed and encouraged to express their faith through the wonderful gift of music that God has given his creatures.
Discovering and using one’s gifts & talents is at the heart of all ministries here at LCOB and this includes the ministry of music as well. Even if you only sing at worship, then you are already part of the Music Ministry at LCOB. YOU are the voice of the congregation and your participation in worship is a key element to excellence in worship. The voice of the congregation provides a foundation for a healthy musical atmosphere from which smaller, more focused ensembles grow.
At present, the LCOB Music Ministry includes a Children’s Choir, an adult Chancel Choir and aHandbell Choir. Singers who wish to participate on a limited basis are welcome to sing in the annual Christmas Cantata and Easter programs. Instrumentalists are always welcomed to participate when they feel comfortable and prepared.
We hope you will consider being part of the rewarding ministry of music here at the Little Chapel on the Boardwalk and grow in spirit mind body and voice through fellowship, music making and worship. MUSIC For the common things of every day, God gave men speech in the common way. And He gave to the poet words to reveal The deeper things men think and feel. But for heights and depths no word could reach, God gave men Music – the soul’s own speech.
