There are many ways to keep a Cadet club in the minds and hearts of a congregation and community. Promoting a Cadet ministry should be an on-going project, (things like Cadet bulletin boards in the back of church or clean-up days around the church and community) but the organization does provide some material and information to help give special emphasis to the Cadeting ministry. Traditionally, Cadet Sunday is the last Sunday in the month of January and Cadet Week is the week leading up to that Sunday. Of course, if these dates don’t work for a church they are free to schedule Cadet Sunday and Cadet Week at a better time.
During Cadet Week a club is encouraged to get families involved by having families visit the club or have fund raising events. The week culminates in Cadet Sunday where the boys of the club participate in a worship service. Participation can take many forms — such as reciting the Landmarks or singing the Cadet Hymn in front of the congregation or performing a short drama that presents the theme for the Cadet season. The boys and counselors are encouraged to be creative in their approach so that those worshipping with them will remember the Cadet program.
Every year the Cadet organization provides material for your club to promote Cadet Week and Cadet Sunday.
