PC Youth After School Program

The PC Youth After School Program is a safe place for Middle & High School aged students to hang out, play, and work on homework while they wait to be picked up from school. This program is absolutely free of charge, all we ask is that you fill out a Student Information Form and that you pick up your student at 5:00 PM!


Students in the PC Youth Center will participate in weekly life discussions called LifeTalk. We will discover what it means to live morally right and how to be successful. Students are encouraged to do their homework in our study hall, but are not required to.


A concession stand will be open daily, however, we only accept cash.


Our goal is to provide safety and supervision to these students while they wait to be picked up, but also to raise them in a culture of honor and respect. 


This program is for 6th - 12th grade students only. We will not be accepting K - 5th grade students anymore for safety reasons. We encourage elementary-aged siblings to register for CCA's After Care in the field house. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

CCA Pantry

Did you know that 1 in 5 students are underfed in our community? Directly across the street from our church are hundreds of children, kindergarten through 12th grade, attending Cornerstone Charter Academy. We are partnering with CCA and meeting their need for a food pantry. Pine Castle will provide CCA needy students with a nutritional bag of snacks to help fill their weekend meal gap. To keep our CCA food pantry stocked up, we need these specific items:


Granola/cereal bars, fruit cups/applesauce cups, cans of pasta in pop-top single servings, Easy Mac in single servings, juice boxes or pouches, single-serving cereal, peanut butter crackers, canned vegetables with pop-top lids.


Please leave your donations at the Cornerstone Kiosk located in the Lobby of our church. This kiosk will be your year round drop-off location for all Cornerstone food donations.
