Children's Ministries


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:12 New Revised Standard Version

The Adventurer program was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as their child's primary teachers and evangelizers. The Adventurer Club gives children a foundation of valuable life skills that promote spiritual, physical, intellectual and social growth. Children enjoy a variety of activities teaching them about nature, the Bible, arts and crafts, recreation, and life skills such as money management, cooking, outreach and service.

Adventurers are children from preschool age through fourth grade. The Adventurer program is sponsored by the Seventh Day Adventist church, but is open to all children and their families who are looking for positive Christian guidance for their little ones. The Adventurer Club presently consists of six class levels beginning with Little Lamb (preschool age), Eager Beaver (Kindergarten age), Busy Bee (1st graders), Sunbeam (2nd graders), Builder (3rd graders,) and Helping Hand (4th graders). After graduating from the Helping Hand class, many children join the Pathfinder Club. Pathfinders is for those who are in the fifth (5th) grade, or its equivalent, through the eighth (8th) grade. The Teen Leadership Training (TLT) program works closely with the Pathfinder program and is for high school students (grades 9-12). Adventurers and Pathfinders can be found world-wide with a membership of more than 2.5 million boys and girls.
