Welcome Parents!!

Dear Parent(s),

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your son to Royal Rangers Outpost 33! Every boy participating in the Royal Rangers ministry should be prepared for a fun and exciting time here at The Oaks Fellowship Assembly of God in Red Oak, TX. A future filled with games, crafts, camping, Scripture, and learning about our Lord and Savior awaits every boy. Our goal is to work with you to help develop your son into a total boy for Christ and to guide his footsteps along the path to developing as a Christian man and a citizen in the Kingdom of God.

The Commanders of the Royal Rangers ministry team in Outpost 33 are very excited about the future of the Royal Rangers program and we are looking forward to assisting you in helping your son grow in his walk with the Lord. Our mission is as follows:

“We seek to establish a ministry to boys/young men, which like refining fire, creates an exciting relational development of the full man of God through: Living in integrity, having character, & being a committed doer of the Word. We prayerfully seek to accomplish this through Teaching: Respect, Courtesy, and Christ like behavior.”

Royal Rangers will give your son the opportunity to earn exciting advancements on the trail to earning the highest award in Royal Rangers, the Gold Medal of Achievement. He will learn the importance of setting goals and develop the self-confidence that comes from accomplishing these goals.

Royal Rangers will develop lifelong friendships and find opportunities to work together through the buddy system and the patrol system. The buddy system means that your son should always have a Ranger buddy with him at all activities, outings, and campouts and they will look out for each other at all times. The patrol system enables him and the members of his patrol to work together as a team to accomplish great things.

Royal Rangers will develop and challenge your son spiritually through weekly Bible studies, Scripture memorization, and devotions. Royal Rangers will help him learn the importance of duty, commitment, and maturity, helping him to become a man of God. The Outpost Rules of Conduct, the Three R’s, and the Royal Ranger Code and Motto will give him boundaries for daily living. The Pastor and the Commanders will continue to challenge him to become a prayer warrior and encourage him to devote himself to daily Bible reading. We believe that the Bible is the ultimate “handbook”, filled with instructions for how to live your life in a manner that is pleasing to God.

In Service to the Master Ranger,

The Commanders of Outpost 33

Choice Christian Greetings


Dear Adventure & Expedition Ranger Parents,

There are so many exciting things that are happening this year that I feel that I am going to burst with excitement at anytime.

Camporama is coming up and if your son's have never been they need to experience it. This camp is so awesome that it occurs only one time every 4 years.

Think on this, over 5000 men, boys and young men in one spot. It is so big that it has its own police force of 16 volunteers [from federal, state, county, and city departments]. Each and every day is full of events that will keep your son busy all day and the nightly services will feed your son's spiritual needs.

There is also our Mystery outing. During a Camporama year, we combine our mystery outing with Camporama. So on the way up - on the way back or both, we will take your son's on an outing that they'll talk about for years to come. Last time we went to Silver Dollar City Amusement park on the way up and on the way back. For the junior high and high schoolers, we are setting up a special event called "MO - THE NEXT LEVEL". Not only will they attend the mystery outing and Camporama, but we are attempting to set up a mystery outing - just for them & it will take place just before Camporama

We need for you to meet with us at one of the following times:

1. January 29th, from 12:15 to 1 pm in Room 101.

2. Phone Conference, January 31st, 7-7:55 pm

a. Dial-in Number: 1-712-432-2000 (call this number and when prompted – enter the participant access code and you’re in!)

b. Participant Access Code – 331777

3. Phone Conference, February 2nd,7-7:55 pm

a. Dial-in Number: 1-712-432-2000 (call this number and when prompted – enter the participant access code and you’re in!)

b. Participant Access Code – 331777

Also, we need as many parents as possible at the following meeting:
· February 5th, from 12:15 to 1:30 for a potluck lunch meeting that will cover Camporama and our flower sale fundraiser. CHILD CARE PROVIDED [BY OUR OLDER BOYS WHO ARE RAISING MONEY FOR CAMPORAMA]


We will have a copy of the calendar on hand, parent packet (with outpost info. for parents).

Please ENSURE that we have your email addresses and good contact numbers, so we can keep you in the constant loop of what's going on. This will prevent any last minute surprises. We have a 24/7 site with our calendar, parent related forms/info and news/updates/prayer request. When you get an invitation to this site - PLEASE - approve and opt in.

Also, we have a phone messaging service that will call you 2-3 days prior to an event as a reminder. Each of us has full plates and our kids are so busy that we forget things from time to time. Since we wish to be servants to you, these reminder calls will go out 2-3 days prior

Finally, we have an auto responder service. An auto responder sends out emails automatically at a certain time. We want to enter reminder notices of events, campouts, etc. The service will automatically send out notices to you.

Like I said, we want to keep you in the loop so that events and outings do not catch you by surprise - ever! So please opt in to this also. Your information is secure and will not be given out!

Thank you for allowing us to Reach, Teach, and Keep your boys/young men for Jesus Christ!!

In His Service,

Stan Lewis

Report On N. TX. Divisional Winter Camp


"THE PRIDELANDS
OF
THE LION OF JUDAH"

ROYAL RANGER OUTPOST 33
December 6, 2005

Dear Pastor Tim and Outpost Council,

I want you to know that we had a wonderful time at the N. Texas Divisional Winter Camp. Churches from the south Dallas, Waxahachie and N. Dallas Sections attended.

During the Friday night service, six boys received Christ as their personal savior, six more where filled with the spirit for the first time and 7 boys rededicated their lives.

Of these boys, our outpost had one boy receive Christ and two who where filled with the spirit for the first time.

Tobias Garner showed good leadership potential as the senior guide. Tobias Garner’s patrol guides - Joseph Williamson and Gabriel Del Valle also showed good leadership potential as they carried out the senior guides directives in setting up the camp site; maintaining a clean & safe camp site; and breaking down the camp site.


Sincerely,

Stanley Bryant Lewis
