Philosophy of Adventurers
|The Adventurer program was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as a child’s primary teachers and evangelizers. 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.The church’s greatest resource is our children; therefore, it is imperative that as a church we meet the challenge to provide a program for our children during their early,formative years. We want right habits,thoughts, motives, dispositions, and attitudes to be established.
The Wise Man wrote,“Bring up a child in the way he should go,and when he is old he will not turn from it.”Prov. 22:6 (NIV). This is more than a cliché—it is a scientific formula.
The Adventurer Club involves children in grades 1-4 and their parents. The program-ming and planning for Adventurers should be simple and short, but creative. Parental involvement provides opportunities for parents to participate in the learning experience.One of the Adventurer Club objectives is to provide a meaningful and exciting experience as the children look forward with anticipation to some day being Pathfinders.
