Choose One of Six Classes

Junior Cadets (Boy’s Club)

The Junior Cadets feel the excitement of cadetting as they work on merit badges
and projects. Building tomorrow’s leaders and teaching how to have a living relationship with Jesus Christ.

GEMs (Girl’s Club)

GEMS Girls’ Clubs is a relationship-building small group—a place to meet new friends. Our goal is to help bring girls into a living, dynamic, relationship with Jesus Christ through singing, Bible study, projects, games and crafts.

Life Skills through Magic

A class that’s more than meets the eye. Hidden in these fun and interactive classes are simple and powerful life changing lessons. Through the act of performing magic, your child will develop priceless communication, people skills and have a brief Bible lesson.

Spanish Bible Study

Learn Bible stories through videos, conversations, crafts, and activities, all in Spanish. This class is appropriate for children who are already able to understand, speak, and read Spanish (those in Spanish immersion or who speak Spanish at home). ¡Vengan para aprender y adorar a Dios en español!

Kids Dance

Learn beginning dance steps to a Christian song. While getting great exercise, kids will learn; rhythms, dance language, the meaning behind the song, and team bonding.

Stomp Band

Playing on a biscuit tin, coffee cups, a stool, cake tray, a mixing bowl, or garbage bin. Students will learn beginning rhythms on unique items. This will be kept to a small group, sign up early.
