Young Patriots Club is a local Christian Ministry of freedom-loving youth, consisting of kindergartners through 12th graders from the greater Des Moines, Iowa area. Our mission is to honor God and uplift American heroes.
Young Patriots Club is all about giving thanks. Our theme verse is: I Thessalonians 5:18 In all things, give thanks. We start by thanking our great God who created us and redeemed us through the blood of Jesus. From there, we thank the many people who’ve blessed our lives, especially our U.S. military and veterans, first responders, and those who love and serve others.
We’re a Kindergarten - 12th grade club. 7th-12th graders serve as Youth Leaders. They make personal goals for using their gifts to further our mission. They also help teach the young patriots, 3rd -6th graders, and Juniors, Kindergartners - 2nd graders.
We gather for 2-3 practices a month at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Urbandale, which has been very generous to us. There we: practice Christian and patriotic songs and recitations we can share at community events, hear from amazing guest speakers, have fun making pillowcases and challenge coins for our heroes, and put together care packages for warriors we support. Leaders share the love of God and instill a sense of American patriotism throughout the year.
