Medals Program & Goals

Note to Parents: Children are encouraged to achieve membership, then to strive to achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold level. Quiet-Time Binders and Memory Verse Packs are presented to all children making membership. Certificates are then presented during the year to any child who has attained a particular "level". At the end of the school year, a special awards night is held where the actual medals are presented for the highest level a child has attained. However, working towards medals is not mandatory, and children are welcome to attend without being involved in the Medals Program.

MOTTO, PLEDGES & SONG:

Olympian Motto:
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:14)

Pledge to the Christian Flag:
I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag and to the Saviour for whose kingdom it stands; one Saviour, crucified, risen and coming again, with life and liberty to all who believe.

Pledge to the Bible:
I pledge allegiance to the Bible, God's Holy Word. I will make it a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path; I will hide its Words in my heart that I might not sin against God.

Pledge to the Church Flag:
I pledge allegiance to my Church and to my Lord upon whom it is built. I will love my Pastor and all the members and will faithfully support my Church with my attendance, money, service and prayers.

Olympian Theme Song:
Running the race for Jesus, Olympians are we,
Christ Himself is with us, leading us to victory.
Holding forth the Word of Life, Olympians are we,
With His banner o'er us, won't you join our chorus,
Olympians are we! Hey!



GOALS FOR OLYMPIAN CLUB

The Word of Life Olympian Club at the Evangelical Church seeks to accomplish several goals with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit:

1. To win the hearts of boys and girls to Jesus Christ.

2. To disciple Christian Children to grow in their faith in Christ.

3. To help children to develop Godly habits in their life: To spend time in prayer and studying God's Word daily; to serve others as they would desire to serve Christ; and to apply biblical principles in making decisions for their daily lives. We also want youngsters to get into the habit of reading Christian literature and believe they should attend Sunday School, Church and Olympian Club faithfully.

4. To allow young adults the opportunity to serve the Lord while developing their leadership abilities.
