Truth Scouts Club

Children in first grade and older are invited to join the Truth Scouts Club, which meets from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays at First Baptist Church of Peculiar, 216 E. Broadway St. Formerly known as The Good News Club, the club has changed names and moved to the First Baptist Church location. The club is free. Activities include games and songs and Bible lessons.

Children can walk with the Truth Scouts Club teachers after school from Peculiar Elementary School to the club location, or they can be transported by parents. If children are walking with the TSC teachers, parents must notify Peculiar Elementary before the child's first club attendance so that children will be in the correct dismissal line. Register here
