Children's Ministries

Pioneer Club

Wednesday Evenings 6:30-8:00 (Sept - March)

Pioneer Club is a Christ-centered, Bible-based ministry on Wednesday evenings for kids ages three to grade 5. The ministries goal is to help children put Christ in every part of their lives. Through club activities, such as Open Bible time, activity, singing and Bible Memory work, club members grow as whole persons with a variety of skills. Pioneer Club also helps children form healthy relationships with their family, peers, and adults.

There are five different clubs:

Skippers - for children age 3 whose parents are involved in the program.
Scooters - ages 4 and 5 (only for the children of volunteers)
Voyagers - Grades 1 and 2
Pathfinders - Grades 3 and 4
Trailblazers - Grades 5

Trailblazers are now using Kids Evangelism Explosion curriculum. This curriculum teaches them the Gospel story and how to evangelize to others. This programs design is to have an adult to child ratio of 1:2. This allows for personal growth and the opportunity for deep relationships between adult and child.
