The Adventurer Club is a Seventh-day Adventist Church sponsored ministry for children ages 6 to 9. The Adventurer program is designed to support parents in assisting children with the challenging task of developing fully as followers of Christ in today’s world.
The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship and to further the child’s development in spiritual, physical, mental, and social areas. Through the Adventurer Program, the church, home, and school can work together with the parent to develop a mature, happy child.
Goals of the Ministry….
- Children will, at their own level, commit their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ
- Children will gain a positive attitude toward the benefits, joys, and responsibilities of living a Christian life
- Children will acquire the habits, skills and knowledge needed to live for Jesus today
- Parents and other primary care-givers will become more confident and effective as co-laborers with Christ for their children
Progressive Class Work
The Little Lamb program is treated as a parent/child partnership, and the child will gain much in the interaction with other children. The Little Lamb will be recognized for his/her work and will be invested along with the other classes of the Adventurer Club. The child must be 4 years old by December 31st of the year they are enrolled in the Little Lamb program.
The Little Lamb curriculum is organized around the four basic relationships in a child’s life: my God, myself, my family and my world.
Eager Beaver Program
This program is designed for kindergarten-age boys and girls. The Eager Beaver program involves a parent-child partnership.. Ideally, parents and their children will do the Eager Beaver activities together. The Eager Beaver Club utilizes hands-on activities, geared specifically for this age group, to provide experiences and develop skills that will be beneficial throughout life.
