Cadets is a fun, fast paced club which is similar to Boy Scouts in many ways, Cadets has the added dimension of being Christian. We enjoy many special events such as camp outs, pizza parties, bowling, gym nights, and the Cadet-O-Rama. The goal of Cadetting is to help boys grow spiritually in all areas of life (devotional, mental, physical and social) by providing Christian male councilors, together with a uniquely designed structure, program and materials.

JUNIOR CADETS

There is a lot of enthusiasm on the part of young boys to begin their journey through the Cadet programs. They’ve heard their older brothers or older boys in the community talk about the camp outs, crafts, Bible lessons, and service projects, and they are READY! Junior Cadets taps this enthusiasm with a “hit the ground running” type of program. The materials are comprehensive but concise. They are designed to effectively channel the energy of boys in grades 2 – 3 (ages 7 to 8-year-olds).
Explorer – for 2nd graders
Adventurer – for 3rd graders

SENIOR CADETS

For boys in grades 4 – 8 (ages 9 – 13)

R.P.B.

Here is the heart of the Cadet organization. Boys and their counselors working side by side on Bible lessons, Christian service projects, outdoor activities (camping, cycling, hiking, canoeing, and much more), and working on merit badge projects — selecting from a wide range of interests and skills.
More than 95 merit badges are offered in this program. The counselor challenges, guides, encourages, listens, and counsels the boys as an expression of God’s love.

The typical club will be made up of several small groups of about five or six boys called cadres. Each cadre will be lead by a counselor.

For information about Cadets, email Gord Furzer and

CONNECTIONS

Connecting together, connecting with God

The Small Groups Ministry of Bethel

What is a small group? A small group is a bunch of people (approx. 6 -12) who meet regularly to learn more about God/The Bible/Christianity or to go out and serve. Our goal as a ministry is to provide various opportunities for people to grow in their faith and understanding, all the while connecting together and connecting with God.

Our small group ministry is a vital part of life here at Bethel.

Our groups are as unique as the people in them. There are groups that prefer DVD style studies, some that prefer more in-depth, verse by verse Bible study, and some that serve the community.

For more information, see the “Exploring Small Groups” brochure in PDF format.
