Boys in grades 5 through 8 are involved in weekly Bible study, recreational activities and creative projects supervised by qualified leaders. These activities are planned to help develop a sense of belonging and fellowship among boys of our church and community. Cadets meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:15 to 8:45pm from September through March. Cadets is designed to help boys develop into men for God.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”Hebrews 12:1–2
Paul often uses competition as an allegory for life, and the author of Hebrews does the same here. When it comes to a life of serving God, we are participants, not spectators.
