Pioneer Clubs

Pioneer Clubs is our ministry for children 4 years old thru 2nd. Meetings include singing, games, Bible lessons, and the opportunity to earn skill badges. Meetings are on Wednesdays, September thru April as part of our WNL program.


GEMS Girls' Clubs is all about—well—girls, grades 3-6th!

Girls are active, imaginative, and unique. They are passionate! And GEMS offers them the perfect place to learn and grow as they discover who God created them to be. Clubs are offered in local churches and Christian organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada, and our mission is to bring girls everywhere into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ.

GEMS Girls' Clubs is a place to belong. At club, girls are welcomed into a vibrant community of   mentors and peers who genuinely care about them. GEMS is an exciting, safe environment for girls to learn about God, His Word, and His world. Girls in club are organized into small groups by grade  with one leader (counselor) for every six to eight girls.

GEMS meets on Wednesday nights, September thru April, as part of our WNL program.


Cadets is a nondenominational international church sponsored Christian youth program for boys in grades 3-6th, where Christian men work with boys to share their love for Jesus Christ through exploring, merit badges, Bible study, projects, and time together.

Cadets earn badges and attain ranks. Badges can be worked on by cadre or by individual boys. In our club boys earn points based on achievements including attendance, timeliness, wearing uniform, bringing their handbook, bringing their Bible, earning a badge, bringing a friend, earning awards, and ranks.

Cadets meets on Wednesday nights, September thru April, as part of our WNL program.

theSummit is our weekly high school student gathering.  theSummit is designed to communicate the truths of scripture and the reality of God’s Kingdom in a relevant manner all in a safe and encouraging setting.  At theSummit we will use worship, creative media, drama, teaching, student testimonies, games, fellowship and food to pursue our mission and vision.  We meet every Wednesday, 6:15 - 8:00 p.m. (September - April) in the youth room.

YOUNG ADULTS (Post-high school / ages 18-30ish) We are a friendly community of young adults who meet about two Friday nights a month for dinner, Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. Sometimes we host other social activities such as volleyball, bowling, etc at different locations.  We use the Band app to update and promote our meetings and activities!
