Unit 944, which meets at New Hyde Park Baptist Church, is a member of the wider CSB organization that has over 350 member units in churches across more than 37 States and Canada. The local leadership team of unit 944 strives to promote and up hold the mission of the larger CSB organization.
CSB will begin on Friday, September 21, 2018. Please click here for the Registration Form.
The cost of registration is $30 per child. If registering more than one child, the cost is $50 for the family. With each new registration, a Stockade or Battalion shirt is necessary. The cost is $25 for each shirt. This includes the cost of the patches necessary. Each child will need to have their initial and subsequent patches sewn on.
Unit 944 offers three programs:
1. Tree Climbers (1st – 2nd Graders)
2. Stockade (3rd – 6th Graders)
3. Battalion (7th – 12th Graders)
Tree Climbers is designed for boys in 1st and 2nd grade and will meet every other Thursday night. The sessions start at 7:15 p.m. and end no later than 8:45 p.m. The purpose is to provide son’s and their dad a time where they can enjoy games, crafts, Scripture memorization and stories.
Stockade is designed for boys in 3rd to 6th grades. Distinct from the Tree Climbers program, Stockade is a mentoring program designed for Christian men to spend time with and mentor boys. Along with fun and games, boys participate in activities that involve exciting growth experiences: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. Stockade is broken down into the Builder group and the Sentinal Group. The Stockade program meets every Friday night from 7:00 to 8:45 p.m.
The Battalion program is designed for boys in 7th to 12th grades. Battalion, similar to Stockade, is a discipleship-centered program where Christian men build personal relationships with teens and mentor them to be effective Christian leaders. These young men share experiences in peer group leadership through weekly meetings. The Battalion program meets every Friday night from 7:15 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
For both Battalion and Stockade, the boys will be responsible to meet goals that will be set for them throughout the year. We would ask the parents to encourage their boys to follow through on these objectives. The leadership team will also be making plans for special events during the year. Examples of these would include; Campfest, Shape and Racecar dinner and extended gym times. Further details on these and other events will be announced at a later date.
In addition to these responsibilities, those boys participating in Stockade and Battalion will be required to bring their books, Bibles and uniforms to our weekly meetings. We will also encourage them to participate in the Share Program which consists in weekly offerings for a special project.
CSB is an important ministry of NHPBC and we would like to encourage you to consider if you know a boy who would be blessed by the program. Feel free to offer an invitation to boys outside of your immediate family such as neighbors, co – workers and even school friends associated with your own children.
