It’s Caravan time at MVCN! We are looking forward to having your child participate in our Wednesday night Caravan program this year.

Pointing Kids in the Direction of Christ!

Caravan is a Christian Scouting Program where children will have the opportunity to earn badges to be displayed on their formal uniform, participate in ministry outreach projects and special group outings. Children are assigned to one of the three major groups – Searchers (first and second graders), Explorers (third and fourth graders), and Adventurers (fifth and sixth graders) – according to their current grade in school.

Caravan takes places on Wednesdays from September through May beginning at 7:00 pm (check-in begins at 6:45 pm). Children will be picked up and released to their parents at 8:15 pm.

We are praying that this year will be a great time of learning and growing in Christ for your child! If you have any questions about the Caravan program throughout the year, please feel free to contact Pastor Mary Barraza or Director Susan Dwello. The church office number is 208-337-3151. We are looking forward to an awesome Caravan year!

Field Trips

Hands-on learning includes getting out and doing! We love to take our classes outside the walls of the church whenever possible. Some of our field trips include mission opportunities. Specific dates for these trips are in the process of being scheduled.

Caravan Sunday

Caravan Sunday is an event that takes place on the 3rd Sunday in October. On this special day, our children participate in the morning worship service. The children need to wear their formal uniform (blue pants/skirt…no jeans; please….white shirt and the appropriate age-level scarf or sash).
