Calendar of Events
The Royal Ambassadors is the mission group for boys from grades 1-5 which are divided into two groups: Lads (grades 1-3) and Crusaders (grades 4-5). We have two adult counselors working with each group.
We study missions each week. Through monthly RA magazines we are able to learn what Southern Baptist missionaries are accomplishing around the world. During our meeting hour we usually incorporate games relating to the mission area that we are currently studying. Every two weeks a large percentage of time is devoted to working in our Lad and Crusader books. The boys try to complete their books each year. In doing so, they are rewarded with a special trip! Some special trips that we have taken before include Titan's games, Predator's games, and several tourist sites.
Also, the boys have the opportunity to earn medals for memorizing scripture verses. In addition, they can earn patches for various activities, including athletics and mission projects. Some camp craft activities are conducted mainly for competition purposes. These activities include tent pitching, compass reading, fire building, and knot tying.
Each year the boys make and race RA race cars. We have an annual weekend event at which we have a camp craft challenge and race the derby cars Sunday after church. An add-a-dish dinner is provided and all family members are welcome! Trophies and ribbons are given to all of the winners.
We hope you will join us in RA's soon!
