Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

Mountain View Conference

Pathfinder Nathan Zill teams up with his father, Victor, conference treasurer, to talk about the benefits and hazards of sunshine during the children’s health expo

The Parkersburg (W.Va.) Pathfinder Club recently conducted a children’s health expo for 250 students, grades K-5 at the Franklin Elementary Center in Parkersburg. Using colorful banners, the Pathfinders manned eight stations across the school’s gymnasium, offering games, quizzes and activities. 

Children came away from a one-week program held at Mountain View Conference’s Braxton church in Gassaway, W.Va., excited about BLT. No not that kind of BLT, but the three-part Bible Lifestyle for Today (BLT) program that combined songs and dramatized audio Bible stories, information about anatomy and a hands-on cooking class.
