Boys and Girls Club

Our Boys and Girls Club is an excellent opportunity for children in 3rd grade through 5th grade to get together with friends, their sponsors and God. We meet once a month for fun activities, including our annual pumpkin decorating party which includes fall games and a bonfire, our fantastic lock-in which is like a gigantic pajama party, and our tasty gingerbread house decorating. We often go hiking, biking, bowling, mini golfing, swimming and sledding. Not only do we enjoy fun activities, but we mix in service projects. Every year we dye Easter eggs for the annual Easter Egg Hunt that is held at our church. Our hands usually end up more colorful than the more than 122 dozen eggs we dye! Last summer we held a bake sale and raised over $300 for our bible school mission project. Every year ends up a bit different than the last, but each year is full of Christian adults helping children enjoy the world God has given us, and trying to make it a little better for others too.
