+GIRLS MAKING GOOD CHOICES

Every girl is a beautiful creation, uniquely equipped by God to do His work in the world. But as girls are growing, changing, and making choices about the kinds of lives they will lead, they are bombarded with conflicting messages about what it means to be a woman. The media says one thing, boys say another, and friends seem obsessed with whatever is newest and coolest. As a result, girls too often hand their decisions over to those least qualified to make them. With wisdom, gentleness, and tremendous grace, we will guide girls ages 7-10 through the most challenging decisions they face, teaching them to let God—not the world—define who they are. Discussing such topics as attitude, friendships, parents, school, and avoiding bad situations, we will helps girls see that the very best choice of all is a choice to live within God's will.This group is for girls 7-10 years old.

In Being Brave, children are encouraged to face their fears and approach new situations with courage. This group is for Kindergarten and 1st graders.
