Children, age 2 through grades 5, have an opportunity to participate in Pioneer Clubs during our mid-week ministry on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The purpose of Pioneer Clubs is to help children put Christ in every aspect of life by recognizing him as Savior and Lord and developing a lifestyle based on biblical values.The goals of Pioneer Clubs are to enable children to form healthy relationships, grow as whole persons, to enter into a personal relationship with Christ and to know His Word, and to enable adults to understand children and help them develop. Children are welcome to join throughout the school year. Pick up an application in the church office. Scholarships are available by request.
