Most of the youth in our church are members of the Castle Pathfinder Club. Our Pathfinder program serves not only spiritual, intellectual and physical purposes, but also serves as a social bridge among the various ages of its members. The Club is actively involved in community service.
The Pathfinder Club is part of a world-wide co-ed scouting type organization sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Juniors and teens in grades 5-12 of any religion, or none at all, are welcomed and encouraged to join this ministry.
Director: Leah Par
OBJECTIVE: To aid young people in their physical, mental, social and spiritual development, so that they can be productive and responsible citizens.
The Pathfinder Club is about leading and mentoring young ones to develop a Christ-like character as well as allowing them mature into responsible citizens. Every aspect of Pathfindering ultimately leads each child to know Jesus a little bit more each day. God calls every member of the church into ministry, even the young ones! —and Pathfindering provides the opportunity for them to serve Him. Young people from the ages of 10 to 16 can be part of the Pathfinders Club, regardless of religious persuasion. Active members enjoy camp-outs, club meetings and other wholesome activities that are part of Pathfindering and essential to character building.
