Our theme for the 2023-2024 Cadet season is “Rooted and Grounded.”
This theme is based on Ephesians 3:17-18, “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, … to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.”
We pray that this theme will remind cadets and counselors of the breadth and depth of Christ’s love. In doing so, we hope to encourage the boys and men of Cadets to reflect that love as they live for Jesus.
Cadet Quest Theme
The “Rooted and Grounded” theme will also be emphasized throughout the year in the Cadet Quest magazine, particularly in the B Lessons of the Bible studies, as well as the counselor editions of these lessons. These lessons are also available separately from the magazine, so you can use the theme lessons without subscribing to Cadet Quest.
Additional supporting materials include themed bookmarks and posters. The bookmarks make inexpensive but useful gifts that keep the theme in front of cadets. The posters boldly proclaim the theme while making a great addition to your Cadet bulletin board and/or meeting area. (Your club will receive a smaller version of the poster in your fall start-up packet.)
Counselor Theme Resources
We’re putting together a whole package of theme-related resources for counselors, and we’re putting them all online. We’ll be adding to these materials over the course of the summer, so stay tuned!
Rooted and Grounded
However you utilize the upcoming theme, we hope it will encourage you and your cadets. We pray that this theme will be used to reach boys in your church and community more effectively.
