WECRC KIDS CLUBS
Cadets is a club for boys grades 2-6. It meets the first three Thursdays of the month (October-April) from 7:00-8:30pm in the church building. Regular meetings include lessons, special projects and activities, sports and merit badge work. Cadets is made up of boys from the neighbourhood, surrounding community, friends, and congregation. All are welcome! WECRC Cadets is led by a large group of volunteers from WECRC. All adult volunteers are screened and trained according to our “Safe Church” policy.
Luke 2:52 states that “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” The goal of the Cadets based upon that verse, is to help boys to grow spiritually in all areas of life (devotional, mental, physical, and social).
*The Cadets (Calvinist Cadet Corps) is an independent (non-denominational) youth ministry organization whose purpose is to provide the local church with ministry programs that will enable them to effectively share Christ’s love with boys from their church and community. Founded in 1952, the Corps has more than 600 clubs throughout North America, a brother organization in Australia and New Zealand, and since 2006 has been working in Kenya and Uganda. The organization uses the title “Calvinist” to honor the Protestant reformer, John Calvin, who devoted his life to the religious education of God’s children.
GEMS is a club for girls grades 2-6. It meets the first and third Thursdays of the month (October-April) from 7:00-8:30pm in the church building.

WECRC GEMS is led by a group of volunteers from WECRC. All adult volunteers are screened and trained according to our “Safe Church” policy.
“And what does the Lord require of you? To do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God.” ~ Micah 6:8
* At GEMS, girls (click on the blue link to see more) are welcomed into a vibrant community of mentors and peers who genuinely care about them. GEMS offers girls the perfect place to learn and grow as they discover who God created them to be. Along with this all-important relationship between each girl and Christ, other relationships are nurtured as well–between girls and between girls and their counselor/leader. The ministry of GEMS has been serving churches since about 1955. More than 20,000 girls are members of GEMS Girls’ Clubs, with some 5000 women serving as their counselors and mentors.
