Wisconsin Dells


According to the My Wisconsin magazine, "Wisconsin Dells claim the largest concentration of indoor and outdoor water parks of anywhere on the planet."

Not only that, but Wisconsin Dells has been blessed with it's share of natural beauty. 

Singing the Word


The Seventh-day Adventist Pathfinder Club, an organization which encourages young people to become well-rounded disciples of Jesus, requires its youth to memorize scriptures including verses about praise, prayer, salvation, doctrine, behavior, promises, relationships, and more.

The Fannin County Mountain Creek Pathfinders learned Trilogy Scripture Songs so these scriptures would be forever in their hearts. Because this method of memorization has been so easy and enjoyable, they desired to share these songs with Pathfinders and people everywhere.

This CD features the Fannin County Mountain Creek Pathfinders singing scriptures including Psalm 34:1-4, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Psalm 103:1-4, and more. It’s the perfect tool for helping your Pathfinders memorize scripture!

This is a great example of how to keep God's word hidden in our hearts! If you would like to purchase this CD, please visit AdventSource.

This club will be at the 2014 Forever Faithful International Camporee and we hope you will be too! Click to Register.

International Clubs Prepare for FFIC


John Swafford, Retired Director of Children's Ministry for the Georgia Cumberland Conference, traveled to St. John's Newfoundland to talk with the Pathfinders there about coming to the 2014 Forever Faithful International Camporee.

St. John's church has the only Pathfinder club in the Newfoundland/Labrador Mission. They attended the 2009 Courage to Stand International Camporee.

This club was so determined to get to the camporee in 2009 that they traveled 12 hours by ferry to get off the island, and then traveled many more hours on land to Wisconsin. 

Let's remember to keep this and other North American and International Clubs in our prayers as they make plans to embark on journeys to attent the largest six-day Adventist youth event in the world.
