Forcey sponsors a wide range of boys clubs and has done so for many years. These clubs meet after school and in the evenings, catering to pre-school through high school boys and include young adults. The clubs operate under the umbrella of the national Christian Service Brigade ministry with the focus of building up young men to love and serve Jesus Christ.
The clubs are specifically intended to provide fun and challenging activities for boys, opportunities for presentation of the gospel, spiritual growth and development, community service projects, and Christ-centered achievement opportunities and leadership training. There are frequent extracurricular and weekend activities, such as projects, trips, camping, etc., for those who desire a greater level of challenge and fun.
Participation in these clubs is not limited to Forcey members and attendees -- in fact, the clubs have been a fun and successful form of outreach to the community for many years. A large percentage of the participants do not attend Forcey and come from neighboring churches and the surrounding community. Anyone who knows of a child interested in the wonderful opportunities and activities these clubs have to offer should call the church office for further information on the specific age/group in question.
In addition, we are always looking for men who love to have fun, have a heart for boys and a desire to build into the lives of our next generation. At times, the lack of adult volunteers has seriously hampered our ability to effectively minister to the young boys in these clubs. If you have any interest in serving even in a limited-time capacity, please feel free to call as well.
This weekly adventure offers dads of 1st and 2nd graders the opportunity to spend productive, profitable time with their sons. Men and boys play a few games, enjoy a simple learning activity and hear a story with a biblical emphasis. Underlying each event are the relationships that develop between men and boys.
Stockade 555 is a club for boys in 3rd - 6th grade and their dads. We meet once a week during the school year to play, work, learn and grow together, keeping Jesus Christ at the center of all we do. In addition to our weekly meetings, we have camping trips, work projects and lots of fun.
