"It's easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults" ~ Frederick Douglass
The Salvation Army Adventure Corps is a Christian education program designed for boys Grades 1-12. It is divided into two sections: Explorers for boys in grades 1-5 and Rangers for boys in Grades 6-12. Each section takes members through a series of achievement awards and levels, helping boys to develop their individuality and potential.
The Guarding Program is sponsored by The Salvation Army. It includes girls in grades 1 through 12, divided into two groups: Sunbeams (grades 1-5) and Girl Guards (grades 6-12). If you do not have a Sunbeam program in your local Salvation Army, you may join Girl Guards in grade 5. If you do not have a Girl Guard program, you may remain a Sunbeam through grade 6. All Sunbeams are members of the Guarding Program. Any girl may join the program.
Moonbeams are members of a national character-building program sponsored by The Salvation Army for boys and girls in grades Preschool (age 4) through Kindergarten. Moonbeams should try to help others whenever possible, even before being asked. Moonbeams are encouraged to attend Sunday school or church every week. If not a member of a Sunday school, the Moonbeams are invited to attend at The Salvation Army. There they'll meet friends and have fun learning about Jesus.
Junior Soldiers are young people aged 7-18 who have made a decision to be a follower of Jesus and who want to grow and express their faith through ministry within the Salvation Army. Junior Soldiers are therefore junior members of The Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army takes seriously the capacity of children to have an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ. This means children are just as capable to participate in the mission of God as adults.
Local leaders in The Salvation Army nurture young people on their spiritual journey helping them to develop their faith, their understanding of God, the Bible and the teachings of Jesus and to equip them with skills and values for their everyday living including what they think, say, do and the decisions/choices that they make.
Soldiers are challenged to think about the way that they engage with their community and also have the opportunity to participate in special projects that will make a difference in their local or global community.
Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths.
God Made Me
God Loves Me
Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever
The entire curriculum is constructed to incite wonder in a preschooler and meet them where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know the three basic truths.
What does 252 represent? It's not our street address or the number of questions a 2nd-grader can ask in 20 minutes. Instead, everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of the three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.
I need to make the wise choice.
I can trust God no matter what.
I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
252 Kids is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. It focuses on 150 Key Bible stories, 4 Faith Skills and 30 Life Apps.
