Sunlight Kids Rainbows Daisies Prims Stars Friends Girls Only

Girls Ministries is about intentional outreach and Christian discipleship for girls. We provide resources to help churches and individuals teach girls biblical truths that will help them learn to make God-pleasing decisions.


Why just for girls?
Gender specific ministry is crucial for developing girls into women of God. Girls are faced with so much confusion and temptation in their daily lives, but in a setting catered to girls they can connect with each other and an older mentor who can invest in them through Bible study and activities and help them grow in their faith and discover the answers to the questions they face.

Relevant and Fun

Looking for resources that seamlessly weave fun and biblical training together?

Girls Clubs are relevant and fun

Girls Ministries is for your group.

• Adventures, activities, and games show girls how discovering God's Word is fun!

• Lessons teach girls valuable life skills, everything from sportsmanship and integrity, to cooking and outreach.

• Girls learn how to choose actions, attitudes, and behaviors that please God.

• Girls encounter difficult situations in their growing up years. By intentionally fostering relationships between girls and the leaders, Girls Ministries creates a safe environment for girls to discuss issues they face and get godly counsel.

• Girls Ministries is flexible. Use curriculum for straight discipleship in a small group setting and/or include the achievement based resources. Meet whenever is best for your group, some different ways to use the curriculum include: small groups, Sunday school, ministry breakout groups, after-school program, home school co-op, one-on-one mentoring, or weekend retreats. 

• Most importantly, Girls Ministries shares with each girl that God loves her and wants to have a relationship with her.


Fast Facts

• Age level groups offer a variety of units, so leaders can choose which ones best fit the interests and needs of their girls.

• Units can be completed in four weeks (six weeks for middle and high school levels), which means visitors can easily follow along with the other girls on each topic. View unit topics

• Girls have the potential to learn 242 Scripture verses.

• In the third- to fifth-grade level, girls begin a regular Bible reading routine and read the entire New Testament.

• In the Teen Girl Ministries (middle and high school) level, girls read the entire Bible.

Achievement or Non-Achievement

A closer look at today's culture confirms the need to offer a non-achievement option for utilizing the curriculum. If the traditional methodology of the curriculum is not feasible in your church, the material can be used solely as a discipleship tool.

Benefits of Non-Achievement

Non-achievement means that the girls in you club do not follow the standardized requirements as outlined by the national Girls Ministries Department and the curriculum is used soley for discipleship and mentoring.

If your girls are uninterested in working the requirements into their schedule this might be the best choice for your group. The curriculum still offers the same discussion and biblical base for a woman-to-girl mentoring program. Some benefits include:

  • Tailor your own requirements to the curriculum.
  • Girls are not required to memorize the Scriptures and Central Truth.
  • Fewer time pressures to complete a required amount of units.
  • Allow the girls to work at their own pace rather than staying within the standard timeframe for each club.
  • Girls are not required to memorize distinctive and pass a review.
  • Girls are not required to complete unit projects.

Benefits of Achievement
Achievement consists of treating the curriculum according to the standards and requirements established by the national Girls Ministries Department. For example: in order to graduate from Friends club, a girl must complete 18 units, memorize the Assemblies of God's Statement of Faith, read the entire Bible, and earn at least a 70 percent score on the Friends Review. Some benefits include:

  • Helps the girls gain a sense of accomplishment and confidence.
  • Participating in local and district recognition events helps them feel a part of a larger group.
  • Provides symbols to accompany the knowledge they have gained through awards.
  • Helps them feel like they are part of a larger community of clubs.
  • Girls are more likely to do the work of reading and learning the Scriptures if guided by a trackable charted out program.
  • All they are required to learn will enrich their faith and serve as tools as they grow older.

Whatever your choice, achievement or non-achievement, you have many options for how to personalize your club, make it enjoyable to the girls in your club, and most importantly help you to disciple and mentor them.

Format Options

Format Options
There are a variety of options when it comes to format. You can also consider more than one format. For example, if you decide to meet as a small group, you can work in one unit or more as a weekend retreat in orger to delve into that topic more.

Consider the following formats below in addition to the traditional Wednesday night option. These are just a few options:

  • Small Group: Allows for advertising of special interest topics. It also allows an opportunity to delve into one topic, related topics, or treat the group like a traditional club going through each unit's subtopics.
  • Sunday School: This setting allows for study and optional charted achievement. This setting can work well when seeking to meet on a non-youth night.
  • Ministry Breakout Groups: Use the curriculum as a guide to open discussion and scriptural insight. Treat the activity page or journal work as optional.
  • After-School Program: Practical and applicable to un-churched girls, or girls whose schedules work best after school.
  • Home School Co-Op: This setting provides an opportunity to teach character-building and explore Christian education. This also allows home-schooled girls to enjoy time with other girls that girls in private or public school receive.
  • One-on-One Mentoring: An established and defined discussion guide to open doors for mentoring and training.
  • Weekend Retreats: Allows leaders to delve into specific topics and invite guest speakers, add fun features, and engage in discussion breakout groups.

Start Up Essentials

  1. Recruit and Train
    Get started with the Leader Training Guide. Everything you need to know is in here—details on club levels, tips for being an effective leader, the steps for building a program, and much more. This all-in-one training and reference book is also the tool you’ll use to train leaders. When you’re recruiting leaders, put their minds at ease by telling them you’ll provide the tools to make them fantastic leaders. Sponsors can complete the course by correspondence or in a group training session. Contact your district Girls Ministries coordinator for training information
  2. Prepare
    The foundation for Girls Clubs meetings is the Sponsor Guides and Activity Pages for each level. The Sponsor Guide has everything a leader needs to disciple girls through the entire year of curriculum. Everything from lesson plans for every unit, sample activity pages, reproducible resources, and club information.

    Every girl will need the appropriate club-level Activity Pages or Journal Pages. Every unit has its own set of Activity Pages, and they are available individually. That means you can pick and choose which units best fit your girls. Activity Pages are full-color and drive home the point of the lesson. For the older clubs, Friends and Girls Only, lessons are taught through Journal Pages, which are also available individually. They help girls get to the heart of how the lesson applies to their lives. We also recommend Intro Pages for each girl in Friends and Girls Only. These pages provide a prayer journal, Bible reading journal, undated calendar, and address book.
  3. Have fun!
    Gather the girls and leaders, and have a blast getting to know each other. This program teaches solid, Bible-grounded principles, and it also helps develop relationships between everybody involved. Enjoy every part of the discipling process!

 

Before Your First Meeting

Plan the Time and Place for Meetingsdiscipling girls
Select a place for club meetings. Usually a room at the church is best. Decide on the time and frequency of meetings that fit your situation. Friends and Girls Only clubs should not conflict with youth-group meetings. These two clubs can hold their meetings on a different night, Saturday morning, or after school.

Plan Financing
Establish a treasury as soon as the club is organized. Funds may be raised in various ways, including regular club offerings, a subsidy from the church, a Women’s Ministries group, or fundraisers. Some clubs charge membership dues. (Girls should not be excluded from attending if they cannot give.) Each club should send a tenth of all money it receives to its district Girls Ministries office to help with district administrative costs (view disticts).

Publicize

  • Announce Girls Clubs meetings in church, Sunday school, children’s church, vacation Bible school, and youth group.
  • Put announcements on bulletin boards, and in newspapers, and church bulletins.
  • Send postcards to prospective members.
  • Personally invite girls to Girls Clubs.

Plan an Introductory Meeting
Invite parents and girls to a get-acquainted meeting. Introduce sponsors and display samples of the activity books or journals, uniforms, and unit awards (badges, charms, pins).

Apply for Charter
Chartering is done through each individual district. For more information and details on how to charter contact your local district director. Prior to your first club meetings, apply for each club’s official charter according to your district’s policy.

You will receive charter certificates and individual membership cards.

Frame and display the certificate in your clubrooms. The certificate will remind the girls in each club that they are part of a national and international organization.

 

Questions

1. Do we need to start with every club?GM Clubs

No. Start with the clubs that match your kids’ ages.

Sunlight Kids—Birth - 36 months boys and girls
Rainbows—Preschool boys and girls
Daisies—Kindergarten girls
Prims—1st and 2nd grade girls
Stars—3rd through 5th grade girls
Friends—6th through 8th grade girls
Girls Only—High school girls

Tip: If your total number of girls is fairly small, bring them together for activities, crafts, and games. We can help you plan similar units for various clubs.

2. Can we use the girls clubs without the achievement program?

Yes. Girls Clubs is an achievement-based program that utilizes badges and awards as a tool to disciple girls. A closer look at today's culture confirms the need to offer a non-achievement option for utilizing the curriculum. If the traditional methodology of the curriculum is not feasible in your church, the material can be used solely as a discipleship tool. View the benefits of both.

 

3. Can we do the program effectively if we only have a few girls in each age group?

Yes. If you need to, just combine the clubs to fit the needs of your church and girls. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

2 Groups: Mpact Clubs combined & TGM Clubs combined

3 Groups: Rainbows & Daisies, Prims & Stars, Friends & Girls Only

4 Groups: Rainbows, Daisies & Prims, Stars & Friends, Girls Only

Tip: We also provide the Together Plan for churches with a limited staff. We have combined Girls Ministries and Royal Rangers based on age-level clubs/outposts, breaking out for gender-specific mentoring opportunities. This plan is designed for small churches that need a combined ministry for staffing reasons but with the eventual goal of progressing toward independently operating ministries for boys and girls. The Together Plan is available for download on our website.

 

4. How can we integrate Teen Girl Ministries clubs with youth?

Remember that your girls belong to God & our aim should be to partner with parents, youth ministry, & other ministry that affects your girls to create well-rounded girls who are discipled, growing, & committed to Christ. Keep these things in mind as you work with others in your church to reach your girls.

Communicate: Keep your youth pastor in the loop about girls clubs activities.

Coordinate: Keep youth event dates in mind when planning your calendar.

Cooperate: Remember you're on the same team & working toward the same goal. Volunteer to help with youth events or consider using the girls group as a small group for your youth ministry.

As you work together, partner, share resources, & encourage one another, the girls in your community will benefit from your teamwork.
