WHOEVER YOU ARE, WHEREVER YOU'RE FROM, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE.
A ministry for boys, 1st to 3rd grade
Pathfinders is an exciting ministry for 1st - 3rd Grade boys. The name is based on Psalm 119:105: "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path."
Boys learn about God through Bible stories and grow in their faith by memorizing Bible verses and learning practical ways to carry out God's Word. A typical night begins with game time followed by large group time to review our theme verse and song and review Bible verses. The boys are then dismissed to their small groups, which are divided by grade level. During small group time, the boys use their Bibles to read the week's Bible story and work on Bible memory.
During small group time, the boys use their Pathfinders handbooks to learn about new skills and fun activities. These include developing outdoor or carpentry skills, learning about the environment, or helping around the home.
Pathfinders meet September through April on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday 6:15-7:45 p.m.
A ministry for boys, 4th to 8th grade
The Cadet ministry is for boys in the 4th - 8th Grades to help them grow spiritually in all areas of life. They learn from Christian role models who lead them in a structured program. Cadet meetings include Bible lessons, badge work, and game time. Also, we enjoy various outdoor events together, such as campouts, swimming, and competition days.
Cadets meet September through April on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month 6:15-7:45 p.m.

Small Groups. Get Connected. Go Deeper.
Small Groups are a chance to interact in a smaller setting, separated by age and gender. These groups are a place where deep spiritual growth can occur and deeper friendships can be forged.
ECRC Youth is here to connect with young people (6th-12th
grade) and walk alongside them on their journey to follow Jesus. We desire to create an environment where kids taste the Kingdom by encountering Jesus, belonging, being known and valued, and serving others.
We do this by: showing up, being present to build relationships with kids, building bridges of trust that the gospel can travel across, creating a lifelong faith in Jesus that will last a lifetime, making sure every student is seen, invited in, known, loved.
All large group December events have been cancelled -- small groups will continue meeting - check out our Winter 2024 calendar for our next activities and events!
