Providence's women's ministries, designed to encourage women of God in fellowship, prayer, and the Word, include weekly Bible studies for women of all ages, an annual retreat, and the programs Secret Sisters, Fellowship Partners, and Apples of Gold.
Kids' Bible College
KBC is for children ages 5–8 and is held every other Sunday during a portion of the worship service. The curriculum focuses on learning the essential facts and doctrines of God’s Word in a fun and interactive environment through videos and personal instruction.
The Providence youth group meet on Wednesday nights for fellowship, singing, prayer, and a look at God's Word. Events include two snow camps, summer missionary trips, and serving the hungry by participating in the 30-Hour Famine.
One Sunday a month, the Providence prison ministry group has the opportunity to bring the message of Jesus Christ to men and women incarcerated at the Allegheny County Jail in downtown Pittsburgh. A worship service is lead by these men with the main emphasis of their time together being to share the transforming Word of God.
Nursery & Childcare
Nursery and childcare is available for Sunday School and the morning and evening services. Care is provided by volunteers for infants through five-year-olds in three age-appropriate nurseries. To serve, volunteers must complete and provide a PA background check and Child Abuse Clearances.
Sunday School Classes
There's a Sunday School class for everyone each Sunday morning before worship. Curriculum and course offerings are developed to teach, engage, and embrace the congregation in the knowledge of the love of Christ.
Small groups within Providence are a great way to fellowship with other members and attendees in the same geographical area. Groups meet biweekly to study Scripture, discuss sermons, read books, pray for one another, and often share a meal.
The music ministry blesses the congregation each week in Sunday worship as well as in various performances through the year. The ministry includes a mixed choir (no audition required), instrumentalists, a women's vocal ensemble, and a men's vocal ensemble.
