Karate Thursdays
 
Every Thursday evening from 7:00 to 8:00pm, we offer a karate class at the church taught by “Karate Dave” Pearson. A fifth-degree black belt, Pastor Dave Pearson, is the founder and lead instructor of Master’s Academy, a martial arts school that offers classes at area churches, home school programs, or youth centers. Dave has taught thousands of students since founding the school in 1988. The classes are family-friendly and suitable for parents and grandparents to take the classes with their children and grandchildren. The program offers an opportunity for belt advancement.
