CSB meets Tuesday nights from 6:30-8.
The goal of Christian Service Brigade is to build strong boys into godly men, who become leaders in their church, community and work place. We do this through intentional discipleship where men of the church who love Jesus commit themselves to modeling what it means to be a man. Through his words and lifestyle, a man has a deep influence on a boy’s social, intellectual, emotional, and most importantly, spiritual formation.
Tree Climbers is the first step of the journey. Fathers attend with their sons and engage in games, crafts, scripture memory and stories illustrating biblical teaching. Boys begin to learn spiritual habits. In addition to weekly meetings, there are monthly group activities such as camping trips, games, rocket launches, fishing, bicycle trips, hiking and the annual Stockar Derby.
Stockade incorporates large group activities that are designed to build group spirit and respect. It includes teaching and games in which the dynamic of working, playing, listening and celebrating together facilitates discipleship. During small groups, called posts, boys focus on various activities and lessons in which they can earn achievement awards. One-on-one time between students and leaders helps boys grow deeper in their faith. The overall emphasis of Stockade is mental, physical, spiritual and social growth of young boys.
The weekly schedule includes games, scripture memory, and stories.
Monthly activities include camping trips, hiking, laser tag, rocket launches and the annual Stockar Derby where boys compete for fastest care and best in show, and may have an opportunity to continue onto the regional competition.
