Scooters (girls & boys 2 to 5 years) – The Scooter class is very busy! We just started a unit called God made me where we will explore how God made each of us special and how to use our special talents. We will be hearing about how much God cares for us. We will be working on praising him with our voices. We will be making stick puppets to act out a story, building unique creations out of playdough, sewing like Dorcas, and using polite voices in a please and thank you game.
Voyagers (K-2ndgrade girls) – are planning a very busy winter/spring. We have started 2013 working on our puppet award. We will be making our puppets, puppet stage and practicing our parts. We hope to present our puppet show “Joseph and his many colored coat” at the shape and race in May. We are studying Gods word with “Loving God”, “God and Me” and “Living Gods Way” awards. We are also getting into shape with our Fitness Trail Award. We will be learning how to be a good friend (MY friends) and how to care for our bodies (Feeling Good).
Pathfinders (3rd -4thgrade girls) - This winter/spring the Pathfinders are learning to sew, so we can make our vests in March. Each week we are learning a new stitch. Currently, we are making a cover for our soda cans using the blanket stitch and then will work on a headband. The girls are going to sew their badges onto their vests for the Closing Picnic & Awards in May. We are going to LOOK GOOD!
Trailblazers (5th -6thgrade girls) - This winter/spring the Trailblazers have been focusing on accepting people as they are: helping/visiting the elderly, understanding disabilities, avoiding stereotypes or be prejudice, and loving others no matter what. Lately, our crafts have been focused on sewing. We just finished learning how to knit (scarves), and now we are learning how to sew (purses) with several different types of stitches.
Tree Climbers (K-2nd grade boys) - This winter/spring the Tree Climbers will continue their study of, and appreciation for, our Lord’s wonderful creation. We will be reviewing units on outer space, oceans, wildlife and the weather. We are learning to realize that we cannot do anything without God’s help, that our Father expects us to obey Him as He is revealed in His Word, and that He made Heaven as the eternal home for those who believe in and trust by faith in Jesus Christ for their salvation. As always, we review verses from both the Old and New Testaments that reinforce the theme for the week. Please pray that these boys would learn to hide God’s Word in their hearts so that they might not sin against Him but instead please Him out of gratitude for His great grace!
Builders (3rd-4th grade boys) – The Builders have been learning about the new heart God gives when we believe in Jesus for all things. And we are learning that this new heart does not simply remove the old tendencies to sin and insist on our own way, it is a battle we wage every day. A lesson we easily forget and of which we need constant reminder. We are focusing our attention on one another while working together to design and build a banner that displays the joy God has given us for Pioneer Clubs, and this has become quite the task. We also made a simple rocket with water and alka-seltzer, demonstrating that whatever we desire and love will eventually show itself on the outside! This among other projects has made for a fun time studying the Bible and spending time together.
Sentinels (5th-6th grade boys) - The Sentinels (Stockade) began with a unit on Building Friendships followed by units on God’s Word, the Gospel, and Prayer. Activities have included bicycle safety and painting and making a special wood project.
