Wednesday Night Caravan

“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”

– (Luke 2:52)

The Caravan ministry exists to help elementary-age children become more like Jesus by encouraging their growth in the four specific areas mentioned in Luke 2:52: mental (wisdom), physical (stature), spiritual (favor with God), and social (favor with men). It also helps children develop an appreciation for and understanding of Nazarene heritage and beliefs.

Caravan is a scouting, or kids’ club, type of program that meets once a week on Wednesday night from 7 – 8:15pm Children earn badges to place on their scarf or sash depending on their age group.
