Contenders of the Faith combines both spiritual and practical skills as a complete unit, since there is really no difference between the secular and the sacred in the daily walk of a Christian. “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31. The purpose of this ministry is to guide and train young men (grades 2 through 6) to walk in the steps of our Lord Jesus Christ, day by day and moment by moment, in every situation. Men are to preach and teach the Word of God, lead their families, provide for them, and care for them. It is with joy that we do this work for our Lord, and it is with joy that we teach our children likewise. It is God’s plan as revealed through His Word.
Keepers of the Faith Clubs are carefully designed programs that provide a solid framework for establishing and maintaining a Christian learning environment. These programs stress Christian attitudes and habits while teaching a wide array of practical skills—rocketry, model building, survival techniques and aeronautics; that are often critical for children who will develop into complete and competent adults.
Hand skills, crafts, and projects are learned. Spiritual skills and habits are developed. Physical fitness is developed through activities. Knowledge is gained through learning about leadership, culture, and nature. Spiritual priorities like Bible reading and memory work are stressed, and there is also a strong emphasis on meeting the needs of “others.”
We meet throughout the school year on the first and third Fridays of each month from 6:45-8:30. This year the program begins on Friday, October 3!
