  • Check with bus company re: space under bus (traveling by bus)
  • Ask a church member / staff member to consider driving a truck / trailer.

STERLING WEBSITE UPDATE!!

Good News!! Sterling website is Updated. It looks slighly different so we created a document to help you navigate it.

CLUB DIRECTOR / PASTOR

Club Directors, one of the best people to have on your team is your pastor! Please use this sheet Click Here to get ideas of how to involve your pastor. Ask for a meeting, set up a time, choose the items from the list that are most relevant to you right now. Maybe even schedule a time to meet every month/other month with your pastor to share what is happening in the Club.

Also, if you aren’t a part of the church board, ask if you could be at the next meeting. You should be there! This is where you advocate for your kids and keep the needs/highlights before the church leaders.

Influence is a wild journey that every parent is on. We go from controlling every aspect of their life and schedule as a baby, to hoping they’ll ask for (and listen to) our opinion as a teenager. 

This raises an important question: How exactly does influence work? 

So, let’s consider influence like this:

We listen most to the people we love the most.

 A parent is the greatest influence in a kid’s life. While our influence may wax and wane with the seasons, there are general rules of thumb for how to gain (and lose) that all-so-important influence. 

Here are five ways to increase the influence you have with your kid: Click Here

About Us


The Adventurer Club is a Seventh-day Adventist Church-sponsored ministry open to all families of children in grades 1-4. Our mission is to support parents and caregivers in leading and encouraging their children in a growing, joyful love relationship with Jesus Christ.
The first few years of a child’s life sets the stage for their future.  For parents/families of pre-K through fourth grade children, our Adventurer Clubs provide a safe place to encourage the development of the necessary social and interpersonal skills they need, in an environment that promotes Christian values and responsibilities.
Families will learn a variety of topics together, from character building, nature, hobbies, safety, and much more. This club also has parenting tips and resources through the family network and is designed to help you be the best parent/caregiver you can be as you partner with your child and other families to grow your kids to be the best they can be. Most clubs meet twice a month.
