What is Patch the Pirate Club?

Patch the Pirate Club is a dynamic children’s choir program, based on the the Word of God and godly character-building music. The program has been used successfully in churches, schools, and home schools since 1984. Patch Club provides opportunities for elementary-aged children, grades 1 - 6, to grow spiritually while developing musically. The nine-month curriculum is designed to run parallel to the children’s school year. The Patch Club curriculum is detailed, yet easy to implement, and includes Bible Impact lessons, sailor devotions, Scripture memory, Bible activities, music lessons, godly character stories, missionary stories, and songs that teach godly-character truths. The Patch sailors are encouraged to sing once a month in an adult church service—thus training them to serve in their local church.

What is PeeWee Club?

The PeeWee Club has been developed for children ages 4-5 (6) with simplified songs, verses, stories, and activities. The Captain’s Log curriculum contains 35 lessons, including reproducible monthly song and verse visuals. A separate packet of beautifully illustrated, age-appropriate, weekly character stories accompanies the curriculum. The PeeWee Sailor Log is filled with art projects and activities to reinforce the lesson each week. Each of the three volumes of the PeeWee Club comes complete with Captain’s and Sailor’s Logs, Character Stories, Sound Trax CDs, and Learn-at-Home CDs.

Who uses Patch the Pirate Club?

  • Churches–Wednesday night, Sunday morning Junior Church
  • Homeschoolers – Individuals and Co-ops
  • Schools

What is the target age group of Patch Club?

Patch Club targets grades one through six. PeeWee Club targets kindergarten, ages 4 and 5. Some clubs include first grade in the PeeWee Club, and some Patch Clubs use sixth graders as helpers.

Do we need a musician to run the Club?

No. Many captains simply use the Patch TraxCD and everyone sings along. The Patch Trax CD includes demo vocals and stero accompaniment trax for the nine godly-character songs, the hymn, and the Christmas performance song. All you need to run a Patch Club program is someone who loves children and is willing to dedicate time to make a difference in their spiritual future. The Learn-at-Home CD (included in issue 1 of every Sailor's Log) helps your clubbers learn the songs in a snap!

What is the length of the Club Year?

Patch Club is a 9-month program designed to run parallel to the school-year calendar.

What are the benefits of Patch Club?

  • Children learn godly character through music, Scripture memory, Bible lessons, daily devotions, and stories.
  • Children gain a love for singing, and club performances prepare clubbers for future service as members of the church choir.
  • Children learn to be faithful in having their devotions.

How much Scripture Memory is included?

Children quote a Scripture memory passage along with Patch over the course of the club year. There is also a memory verse each month and a make-up memory verse each month that can take the place of an absence. Patch Club 2015 will have a supplementary Scripture song book and CD that includes a song for one of the memory verses each month.
