The Christian Service Brigade (CSB) program is a ministry to men and boys in local evangelical churches. Its goal is to build Men for Christ’s service. CSB started in Glen Ellyn, Illinois in 1937. Today, over 1000 churches operate Brigade programs all across North America. CSB is a combination of six distinct programs, three of which are offered here at Severna Park Evangelical Presbyterian Church: Tree Climbers (1st and 2nd grade boys and their dads), Stockade (3rd through 6th grade boys), and Battalion (7th through 12th grade boys).
TREE CLIMBERS: Tree Climbers is Fathers building relationships with their boys. It provides a regular time for dads and their 1st and 2nd grade sons to spend a scheduled time together to grow spiritually under the leadership of their fathers. Tree Climbers meet weekly for games, crafts, scripture memorization, and stories. Tree Climbers even have a mascot, Woody the raccoon.

STOCKADE: Stockade is a weekly opportunity for Christian men to invest their lives in 3rd through 6th grade boys. It is an action packed ministry of special activities, fun and games, structured learning, and a regular challenge from the Word of God.
In addition to the weekly Tree Climber and Stockade meetings, both groups participate in combined monthly activities such as marksmanship, rocketry, Shape ‘n Race, and the fall and spring overnight camping trips.
