Adventurer Club

 

Who We Are

The Poinciana Adventurer Club has been an active ministry in our church since 2010.

 

The goal and purpose of the Adventurer Ministry is to support parents in their pursuit to evangelize their child(ren) for Christ by working together with the home, school and church in providing opportunities for physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social development for the family.

 

What We Do

Adventurers learn spiritual lessons and earn badges in various disciplines with their parents/guardians as well as participate in church and community services such as greeting and offering collection at the church as well as food drives and garbage pickup, etc. in the neighborhood.

 

How To Get Involved

The Adventurer Club is a Seventh-day Adventist Church-sponsored ministry open to all families of children in preschool (aged 4) and kindergarten (aged 5) as well as grades 1-4 who agree to keep the Adventurer Pledge and Law. The Adventurer program is designed to support parents in assisting children with the challenging task of developing fully as followers of Christ in today’s world.

There are also many opportunities for parents/guardians to be involved in as their child(ren) become members of the club. For future enrollment, registration will be September, 2014.

History - The Adventurer Program: 

The Adventurer program was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as a child’s primary teacher and evangelizers as a sister program to the Pathfinders for children in grades 1 – 4. (6 – 9 year olds) The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship and further the child’s development in spiritual, physical, mental, and social areas.

In 1972 the Washington Conference sponsored a club for children called “Beavers,” the forerunner of Adventurers, under the direction of Carolee Riegel. The North-eastern Conference is reported to have had a children’s club concept program by 1975.By 1980, many conferences were sponsoring a club for children in this age group.  A committee met in 1989 to update the Adventurer curriculum, develop Adventurer awards, and write guidelines for the Adventurer Club organization. The committee involved children’s Sabbath School leaders, educational personnel, conference and union Children’ Ministries coordinators, and child and family specialists. It was chaired by Norman Middag,  The Adventurer curriculum, was written by Teresa Reeve.
