It is that time again!
Along with the new school year, we too begin our new Pathfinder year.
Our Pathfinder club will be very active in club meetings and events in our Washington, DC Metro Area club events and in our Allegheny East Conference events as well.
We will hold regular club meetings on the 1st and 3rd Sundays from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.both in-person and virtually for those that perefer to participate from home. For In-person meetings, state, county and church COVID-19 protocols requires us to have social distancing measures in place and masks and/or face coverings will be required. Pathfinder uniforms are part of our requirments, especially when we are out in the community for service and Spiritual outreach. There will be many opportunities for Pathfinders to engage in outreach, recreational activities, camping events and more. We will have club socials once a month as well.
We will rcontinue being active in many areas this year. Some include Community Service Ministry, Youth Evangelism, Drill & Marching & Color Guard exercises, the Pathfinder Bible Experience (P.B.E.) event as well as training meetings and camping events as well.
But most importantly, we will be striving to ensure that our Pathfinders complete their classes of study and pass their Investiture Achievement (IA or AY) levels. The areas of study emphasized in the IA journals are everything our Pathfinders need to become young Christians whom are not afraid to tell others about their Faith in Jesus. It also helps them become well-rounded citizens of society.
Our church motto is “Loving God Completely and others unconditionally.” It’s on the backs of our Pathfinder shirts and it is part of all that we do as Pisgah. It has been for years. This Pathfinder Year, we will work with our club to come up with a theme for the year. The 5 year emphasis for our conference is “Keys To The Kingdom” and the International Pathfinder Camporee 2024 theme is “Believe The Promise” Our Goal is to get back to the basics of our Church’s mission: get our young people out in the community and through youth evangelism, show them the character and love of Christ.

Our Pisgah Scorpions Pathfinder Day
took place on December 8, 2018!
OUR GOD IS AWESOME!!!
Well, it was an incredibly emotional Pathfinder Day to say the least... The kids inspired us as young leaders by leading out in all areas of worship service. Our Color Guard opened things up Patriotically and Pathfinders & MasterGuides marched in unison to the Cadence set by the awesome Metropolitan Metrolites Drum Corp as they played with precision. Thanks to Victor Marcelle for getting them here. We heard an incredible, heart-filled and inspiring appeal given by Associate Area Coordinator for the Metro Area Adventurer Clubs, Sis. Cheryl Sellow. Our prayer is that someone answers the call to lead our Adventurers here at Pisgah. Six of our Pathfinders were invested, including the two sons of our AEC Executive Coordinator, Genny SmallMoore, as she read to them the Investiture charge with tears of Joy. Those same gifted young boys played & sang a beautiful Special Music presentation. I gave respect & recognition to all those Pathfinder leaders whom came before me because they are the true unsung heroes for our Youth. The Youth Praise & Worship team sang beautifully like angels. God put a message on Pastor Novella D. Smith 's heart and we were truly Blessed by an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Fellowship Meal was lovely. Our AY Program was fun and Brother Jay Moore gave us an inspiring word on building up our "Chosen" young people for God. We visited one of our legendary Adventurer & Pathfinder leaders in our time, Brother Frank Weedon. And ended the day having a fun dinner social at a great place: Foster's Grill in Waldorf. Thank you to all our visitors & visiting Pathfinder clubs, our Area Coordinator, Regina Carter Wright, our Pastor, my staff, our Church Leaders, ministry volunteers and supporters, our Parents and everyone who supports our youth. Thank you all. - Director Los
Here are a few pictures from the Investiture.

2017 - 2018 YEAR IN REVIEW
I thank God and give Him the Glory for everything He has done to further the Pathfinder Ministries Worldwide. I pray that my Lord & Savior will continue Blessing our young people and keeping them forever close to Him and sharing His love to others! It was an Awesome, Inspiring, Tiring, Spirit-led & Rewarding Pathfinder Sabbath Program as well as a fun-filled Pathfinder Community Fun Day. Thank you to my staff, our many church leadership supporters, all of our parents, and everyone whom has had a hand in making our Pathfinder Ministry here at Pisgah a success in these last 2 years that I've been our Pathfinder Director. We could not have done this without all of your support. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. God Bless You All!

Pisgah Scorpions at the 2018 AEC Pathfinder Fair
June 21 - 24, 2018
This year's theme for the AEC Pathfinder Fair was Building Character To Be "Chosen" - Good Samaritan. I am pleased to announce we placed 8th overall out of 43 registered clubs! We earned 1st place for the Metro Area in the Campsite Inspection category. We received a perfect score for our Parade march. We earned a 2nd place for our Basic Drilling & Marching skills. We placed pretty well in the Pack, Pitch & Strike, Fire Building, Orienteering, Theme Emphasis Skit & First Aid skills events. To top it all off, our very own Jacob Moore received the Conference Pathfinder Of The Year Award. This adds to his existing recognition of Pathfinder Of The Year for our Club this year. I am so very proud of all of our Pathfinders. Please join me in congratulating ALL of them. This was my 2nd time as club Director and many of our currentl club members as well. We also had a few of our kids whom experienced their first Pathfinder Fair. I also have to give a very special Thank You to our Sales Mall Team: Maceo & Lori Hart, Cerise Shaw, Ronnita Green, Alice Freeman, Susanna Robin, Carlise Shaw, Fleada Scott, Clara Shaw and everyone on hand who helped as well as everyone else who donated food & money to support our club fundraiser.

The Scorpions Attend The Metro Area Skills Empowerment Weekend
Watkins Park & Go Ape Zip Line Adventure Park, May, 2018
From Spiritual Devotion & Prayer to Fire Building Skills & Camp Fire Safety to Marching & Drilling disciplines to First Aid to Pack, Pitch & Strike to Knot Tying to Orienteering to the Drill Down, our Pathfinders had lots of training in preparation for the AEC Pathfinder Fair and ultimately, the 'latter rain'. We teamed up with First SDA Church in our activities and had a great day of skills empowerment. We endured rainy weather and flooded terrain, but we thank God in all things.
We are Pathfinder Strong! #PathfinderStrong... #WeAreScorpions...
