Our church caters for children each week by providing Sabbath School classes for several age groups:
Junior (ages 10-12)
Primary (ages 6-9)
Kindergarten (ages 3-5)
Beginners (for infants 0-2 yrs - parents welcome)
The weekly children's Sabbath School classes each week include songs, crafts, quizzes, games and Bible stories.
Children join their parents during the main church service where there will be a children's story for them.
Pathfinders is a program similar to Scouts, is designed for 10-16-year-olds to socialise with each other as well as learn and develop life skills. The program is conducted by qualified and committed leaders of the church. Pathfinders participate in a range of activities, including:
- rock climbing
- camping and hiking
They also learn to develop important life values such as teamwork, commitment and self-respect.
Honour badges can be earned for completing requirements on specific topics in the areas of nature, craft and recreation, and at the end of each year Pathfinder clubs present awards to Pathfinders for achievement of various skills.
The Adventurers Club is a program from children aged 6-9 years, with additional sections for children ages 4 and 5. Adventurers is simmilar to its 'older sibling', the Pathfinders, where children are taught in a fun and creative way, the habits, skills and knowledge needed to live in today's world.
The Kingaroy Adventurer club operates between the middle of February to December. They meet at 2:00pm in the church hall on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month.
Club time includes singing and pre-Pathfinder type activities earning awards (patches) by practicing new skills. Between 2:30 and 4:00, our teachers help the club members learn more about Jesus through nature and crafts during our small group activities.

Eager Beavers (age 5)
Busy Bees (age 6)
Sunbeams (age 7)
Builders (age 8)
Helping Hands (age 9)
The Adventurer curriculum is designed so that:
Children will, at their own level, commit their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ.
Children will gain a positive attitude towards the benefits, joys, and responsibilities of living a Christian life.
Children will acquire the habits, skills and knowledge needed to live for Jesus today.
Parents and other primary care-givers will become more confident and effective in their role as collaborators with Christ for their children.
Church will accept its responsibility in assisting to care for its younger members by providing and implementing a planned curriculum of religious education for this age level.
