Calvinist Cadets

The 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. We encourage any evangelical Bible believing church to consider using our ministry programs. 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. Please call the church office at 459-4451 if you would like to enroll your children, or would like more information.

Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored is an informal 7-week course for people who’d like to investigate Christianity or just brush up on the basics. Whether they have previous experience of Church and the Bible, or none at all, everyone is welcome—from the most sympathetic Sunday Schooler to the most convinced atheist. Attendees will not be asked to pray, sing, or read the Bible aloud, but may simply come as they are, bring their questions, and explore with us who Jesus is and shy it matters.

Heart-Centered Parenting

What is the goal of parenting? How can parents effectively set and enforce rules with their children? How should they respond to defiance, apathy, and other bad behavior problems? How can they constructively approach conflict in the home? Heart-Centered Parenting is an informal, small group course aimed at discussing questions like these and providing Biblical answers and practical advice for parenting God’s way.

Financial and Job-Skills Training

In both one-on-one as well as small group settings, Seventh offers classes that provide employment resources, job skills and money management training aimed at equipping and empowering individuals and families to make the best use of their God-given gifts and opportunities. The classes are free and cover a wide range of topics, including budgeting, resume building, debt reduction, interviewing skills, and much more.

Kent Count Jail Ministry

With compassionate hearts and in recognition of our own need for grace and forgiveness, Seventh has for many years ministered to the female inmates at the Kent County Jail on the third Sunday evening of every month. Through Bible study, fellowship, and prayer, we endeavor to offer real and lasting hope through the life-changing message of forgiveness and renewal in Jesus Christ.
