For many years, Pearce has had a ministry specifically directed to reaching those who love to pursue God in the great outdoors. Through various guests, large group events, and our Sportsmen Academy, we have sought to reach others for Christ through their interest in the outdoors. We have changed our name from Pearce Sportsmen to Pearce Outdoors. We want to invite you to join us on Tuesday evenings one a month, and bring your friends. There will still be pie and coffee, but our desire as Pearce Outdoors is to offer monthly opportunities to introduce people who don’t yet know the Creator to come and see Him in the created!
Our monthly seminars meet on Tuesdays at 7pm, in Room 134 (education wing). Topics are as follows:
January 10: Bob Samuelson–Have you ever seen tracks in the snow or mud and wondered what animal made those? Bob Samuelson, of the NYS Trapping Association, will be with us to teach us track identification.
February 14: Gary Zimmerman–Wild Life Rescue Expert, will be joining us with various birds of prey and rescued Wild Life. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to see these creatures up close and to hear more about what we can do to be stewards of God’s creation. The group will meet in Room 251 this evening only.
March 14: Kyle Poag–local high school teacher, Pearce member, and Fly Fisherman extraordinaire, will be with us to teach the finer points of getting started and preparing for the upcoming fishing season
April 11: Rob Harris–Owner of Higbies, will be here to discuss Gardening and Lawn Care for the coming growing season. Jack Bryant from Preferred Seed will also be joining Rob for this presentation.
March–TBD: Join the Pearce Outdoors Group for a delicious breakfast and the unique opportunity to hear from Colton Orbaker on building your own bow out of PVC, and Matt Bailey of Bailey Knives. Matt makes high quality knives and will talk about the process, from forge to sheath, as well as teach us how to sharpen and take care of our own knives.
