The Medical Cadet Corps is a ministry for ages 16 and over. The MCC program was originally intended to prepare church members for noncombatant military service in the event of compulsory enlistment. Today Medical Cadets are trained to serve God, their neighbors, and the community, especially in emergency, rescue and disaster response. MCC trains and equips members to provide spiritual comfort or “Spiritual First Aid,” first aid, relief, rescue, and humanitarian aid in times of emergency and disaster. MCC also provides logistical support to all Seventh-day Adventist church activities and programs, as requested.


The Adventurer program is for children in grades Pre-K to 4 and was created to assist parents in their important responsibilities as a child’s primary teachers and evangelizers. The program aims to strengthen the parent/child relationship and to further the child’s development in spiritual, physical, mental, and social areas. Participants progress through different ranks called Class Levels each year from Little Lamb to Helping Hands. Through the Adventurer Program, the church, home, and school can work together with the parent to develop a mature, happy child.
