Royal Rangers was founded in 1962 by the Assemblies of God church in Springfield Missouri. Today there are over 100,000 members in the United States and 150,000 members outside of the United States represented in over 80 countries.
We at Newport Mesa Church are known as Outpost 33 and are part of the Orange Division, Southern California District.
The Royal Ranger curriculum is divided into age groups that have their own set of Bible, skills, and leadership merits.
Ranger Kids: K through 2nd grade
Discovery Rangers: 3rd through 5th grade
Adventure Rangers: 6th through 8thy grade
Expedition Rangers: High School
We ask that each Ranger comes on time, in uniform, with Bible, Handbook, pencil, and dues. A uniform can be as little as an Outpost T-shirt. We do however encourage our Rangers to purchase a utility shirt and an awards vest for our monthly all group and when we serve at our Church or community.
A typical night for Discovery Rangers and up consists of gathering together for pledges, prayer, and announcements and we then split into patrols where each patrol will take the role and collect dues. We meet in our respective groups for the Bible lesson, go outside for play (our games are fun and promote team building) and last we work on our featured merit.
Our Commanders take training classes that are offered through the national, district or the division every year.
Our main point of contact for each group is as follows.
Ranger Kids: Kilbe Picciano firstname.lastname@example.org
Discovery Rangers: Pete Triana email@example.com
Adventure / Expedition Rangers: Alan Hoff firstname.lastname@example.org
