Pioneer Club: Where Children Learn About Christ, Have Fun, Make Friends
Pioneer Club is a weekly club for children age four through sixth grade that meets from 6:30-8:00 p.m. each Wednesday from early through mid-May. Pioneer Club offers children a fun atmosphere in which to learn about God. Each club night children study God’s Word, pray, accomplish hands on projects and crafts, sing, enjoy snacks and make new friends.
Pioneer Club’s primary goal is to introduce children to Jesus Christ, God’s Son and our Savior. At Pioneer Club children are also taught how the Bible applies to everyday life in the home, school and at church (Click here to see a sampling of the topics and lessons covered in Pioneer Club).
Pioneer Club is led by Godly men and women who love children and who are committed to their work as club leaders. Our club year also includes fun outings for children, a Christmas and Easter Program and a year-end awards service. Parents are invited to stay and join us for a club night or to become a volunteer helper. If you would like to learn more about Pioneer Club you can call the church office at 945-5498. (Grow is for young people grades 7-12 and meets at the same time as Pioneer Club).
Grow – East Gate Youth Group
Grow meets each Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the church. Each youth meeting includes a time of Bible study, prayer, fun games and activities and snacks. The goal of Grow is to know God through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, to grow into spiritual maturity, and to lead others to follow Jesus through setting an example of excellence in living the Christian life. To know, grow, and go.
Group members have the opportunity to make new friends and interact with Christian adults who care about them. Group leaders have also incorporated into the group’s structure service to others. Whether it’s visiting the elderly at a nursing home or raking the leaves of someone who is unable, Grow seeks to help those who are in need. Special activities are also a part of group life.
