Our Mission

What are Girls Clubs?

Girls Club Ministries are an outreach of the Department of Youth & Discipleship to assist the local churches in teaching our girls victorious living.

These Clubs Were Created For The Purpose Of:

 

  • Encouraging growth in Christ
  • Developing personal character, abilities and skills
  • Discovering ways to serve others
  • Providing Christian fellowship and recreation
  • Winning peers for Christ

Little Sweethearts – Girls ages 3 – 5

Preschool girls learn who Jesus is, how special they are to Him, and how they can share His love through Bible stories, hands on activities, and merit badge studies as part of a three-year achievement series.

Blue Belles – Girls in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades

Primary girls are provided exciting learning experiences through a three-year achievement series, Blue Belles Bible Investigations, merit badges studies, and group activities.

Joy Belles – Girls in 4th, 5th and 6th grades

Junior girls are provided group activities, an exciting three-year achievement program, Journeys With Joy Belles, and merit badge studies

Young Ladies Ministries

YLM is a club for Young Women in 7 -12th grades

Generally the group meets one or more times a month.

It is an outreach ministry to draw girls first to church, then to Christ as their Saviour.  The girls do not have to be members of Church of God or Christians.  The highest aspiration, however, is that each one will become saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Spirit

The YLM program provides teen girls with an achievement incentive, options for service projects, and social activities for the purpose of developing personal excellence and establishing a personal relationship with Christ as she discovers biblical patterns for living.  Other important elements  of the program are promotion of healthy choices, Christian leadership training, Christian fellowship and recreation, and opportunities to witness or peers.

Consult with your pastor for assistance in establishing leadership, especially in selecting a counselor.

Meet with Parents. Encourage their support and cooperation. Some may want to be prayer mothers.
