There are two main programs for children.  One organized for girls and one for boys.


Boys need the discipleship of their fathers and other Christian men. Through the Calvinist Cadet Program the fathers/men in our congregation will have the distinct privilege to build up these “future men.” The goal of the cadet ministry is to help boys grow in four main areas: Devotional, Mental, Physical and Social. These goals will be achieved through Bible study lessons, Christian service projects, outdoor activities and working on merit badges. There is no better use of  our time than to invest in the future of the church. We strongly encourage all boys (ages 9-14) to be involved, along with any men that feel they could share their talents with our boys.

Here is what you can do…

Pray about your role in the lives of these young men.
Pray for this new avenue here at PURC and that it would impact these young men for God’s glory!

Cadets meets the second and fourth Wednesday evening of every month, September-May. Check out the PURC Calendar for meeting dates!
