All families with daughters are invited
American Heritage Girls (AHG) Troop KS2315 is hosting a Family Fun Night at 6:15 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, at Zion Lutheran Church in Hiawatha. The families will get a sneak peek of the program year: including a devotional, crafts, games and ice cream.
Girls of all ages are invited to learn along with current troop members about the program year theme SHINE. The light of Christ reminds us we are loved and encourages us to share His light by shining brightly for others around to experience His love too.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven,” Matthew 5:16.
AHG is a faith-based character development program for girls dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. If you know a young woman or girl, age 5-18 who is interested in learning more about American Heritage Girls, they may reach Joan Stoller at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Troop is Chartered by the Northeast Kansas Partnership and meets at Zion Lutheran, 613 S. First Street in Hiawatha.
The Troop is hosting a New Parent Information Meeting at 6:15 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 18, at Zion.
With programming that puts an emphasis on faith, service and fun, girls choose from more than 240 badges, participate in service projects, and are challenged by leadership opportunities and outdoor experiences. Troops are led by adult volunteers who facilitate the AHG program while encouraging girl leadership. Faith-based organizations like churches, schools and civic organizations charter AHG to achieve their ministry goals for youth.
“Now more than ever, families are seeking faith-based activities for their daughters to complement their values and instill leadership and servant hearts through service to their community,” said AHG Executive Director and Founder Patti Garibay.
AHG has received an endorsement from Dr. James Dobson, child psychologist and author. In his book, Bringing Up Girls, Dobson – founder of Focus on the Family – said, “I recommend American Heritage Girls enthusiastically to parents who want their daughters involved in a traditional Christian-based program that will reinforce what they are trying to teach at home.”
