On Wednesday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Carl Wren, pastor of First Church of the Nazarene, talked to Tom and Laura about the Caravan Christian Scouting Night held weekly for FCN kids.

The children's ministry event is held at the First Church of the Nazarene every Wednesday night from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. It is open to all kids from kindergarten to fifth grade. Wren described it as a "Christian scouting program. It has been around since the 1940s. If was founded by... a Nazarene [who] helped rewrite the Boy Scout manual." The founder decided to start a program similar to the Boy Scouts, focused on Christianity. The kids get uniforms badges with core beliefs.

Wren described the purpose of the program: "It helps us put adults to partner with kids with God and teach them to have Christian community together and work together for a common goal." The program also includes lessons on camping, fishing, bike safety and other outdoor activities in addition to faith-based goals.

Registration for the program is $30. However, free registration can be obtained by letting them know that one heard about the event on the radio.
