I was right on schedule with meeting Tess at exactly 8:49 am. If you should ever have the opportunity to meet Tess, as I have myself on a number of previous occasions now, you will find her to be a very outgoing and energetic individual. You will not walk away from Tess without ever hearing, "Blessings" from her, this I am certain.
Let me first explain a little bit about what the Pioneer Club is before I go on any further with more photos and captions. Pioneer Club is for Children ages five to fourteen years, "set in a safe environment for kids to have fun while studying the Bible, memorizing Scripture, learning new skills, playing games, building everlasting relationships, and ultimately learning to live for Christ" (excerpt in "quotes" taken from Pioneer Club brochure).
I wonder if the question has yet crossed anybodys mind why I am doing a post on the Salvation Army's "Pioneer Club's Program"?
Let me go there .... you have seen all the children in the above photo who attended last Year, with I am sure this amount going to be the same or more this upcoming Year, beginning every Tuesday from September 18th until December 2012, and then again from January until June 2013. There is a huge need for people to Volunteer as Pioneer Club leaders for this upcoming Year. It is a commitment of only 1 evening per week, this already mentioned as being every Tuesday evening, time from 6:30 until 8:00 pm.. Our community needs people to come out to help with these Children's clubs, as they give the children self-esteem, encouragement and tools for learning to work as a "team" together in order to prepare them for their futures, also giving them a solid beginning in teaching them about God and Jesus Christ.
When I was growing up, being the same way I started out my two sons, I attended Sunday School. It was part of my life. It gave me the foundation for what my beliefs are today. I believe every child should have this same opportunity, if not at a Sunday School every Sunday, then what other better place then at a Pioneer Club every Tuesday?
Anyone who has a LOVE for children, who can commit their Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, who resides in Wiarton or close by, I ask that they be so kind to lend themselves as a Pioneer Club Leader this Year by contacting Tess as follows:
