Wednesdays: Royal Rangers
7:00–8:15 p.m. | Wednesdays, September–May
Royal Rangers is a club for Kindergarten–5th grade boys that provides positive male role models and uses exciting activities that boys enjoy—such as camping, games, pinewood derby cars, stories and crafts—to reach, teach, and keep boys for Christ and to help develop the whole person—spiritually, physically, mentally, and socially.
The aim of Royal Rangers is to instruct, challenge, and inspire boys in the areas of: Bible, doctrine, Christian service, moral conduct, and the basic beliefs of our church. Boys may enter the program at any level and dads are encouraged to participate in many of the activities. Royal Rangers has serveral father-son activities throughout the year including a Camp-in, Camp-out, and the Pinewood Derby.

The Value of the Royal Rangers
Royal Rangers provides an effective means of discipling boys by utilizing direct personal relationships between men and boys, developed around a core of shared interests and experiences. Activity-based ministries are essential to the spiritual developement of boys.
Our Mentoring Methods
Boys will be boys! They are God-designed to be assertive, competitive, and energetic. Our experienced mentors provide needed guidance, discipline, and structure using the methods described below.
Friendship—Our mentors are committed to ensuring friendship charges our ministry atomosphere. Boys develop lifelong friends in Royal Rangers and meet wholesome men, who will affirm them and who they can look up to.
Activities—Royal Rangers is about hands-on adventure and side-by-side relationship building. Beyond the fun, boys discover they have what it takes to be men as they spend time with mentors outdoors, in the gym, at the computer, serving, or on the stage. Royal Rangers provides boys with fun activities in five areas of interest: Outdoors, Sports, Trade Skills, Technologies, and Arts.
Advancement System—In Royal Rangers, boys and young men are challenged to embark on an adventure that requires them to participate actively. It is a spiritual journey that will forge their character and maximize their leadership potential. To the uneducated eye, boys are just learning survival skills in the wilderness, playing sports, producing a music video, repairing the home of an elderly person, etc., but in the process, our mentors are intentional about laying biblical foundations of sexual expression, worldview, culture, manhood, and leadership. Through earning merit badges, boys are guided on a measurable, personal, and spiritual growth process.
Interactive Learning—Personal development in Royal Rangers is all about hands-on fun and getting dirty! Boys learn by hearing, seeing, doing, and when appropriate, teaching others. It's learning by doing.
Service & Ministry Outreach—"It's not all about me!" This is a lesson boys learn in Royal Rangers. Meaningful opportunities are provided for young men to move beyond themselves to help others, instilling attitudes and behaviors of lifelong servants.
Medals & Awards
Various medals and awards are available to Royal Rangers to honor boys for their service in the program. Some of these awards may be earned annually according to a specific list of requirements. Others are presented in recognition of special acts of terms of service.
The Royal Rangers program is defined by the core principles upon which it was built. These core principles of evangelism, discipleship, leadership, achievement, and service are represented by our pledge, code, motto, and emblem.
