As members continue through the Boys Brigade Program, progressing into activities like the LTC Camps, that there is a certain level of maturity and responsibility expected from members participating.
LTC is Leadership Training. The Internet, Electronic Games, Peer Pressure are distractions young people live with all year around. Please be respectful of others during our time together ensuring we build one another up.
Matthew 22:36- 40 forms the basis of exactly how God wants us to live and treat each other.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
This idea of “loving your neighbour as yourself” really forms the basis of our expectations of members.
Treat others as you would like them to treat you.
Philippians 2:3-4 “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.”
Speak to others as you would like others to speak to you.
Proverbs 15:1 “A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.”
Ephesians 4:29 “Watch the way you talk. Let nothing (Unwholesome) foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift”
Be humble, you’re probably not that perfect yourself!
Romans 12:3 “Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.”
Relating to the opposite sex…
1 Timothy 5:2 “Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.“

Relating to your Leaders
Hebrews 13:17 “Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.”
