In addition, girls build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage girls to be spiritual leaders.
Ages 3-4 years
Rainbows Club provides an exciting theme for the Bible stories, crafts, full-color activity pages, and games for this preschool club. Rainbows add colorful animal badges to their vests as they complete requirements for the achievement program.
Prims are guided through life-application stories as the girls learn biblical principles. Prims earn colorful badges depicting these club characters as they complete requirements for the achievement program.
Girls make their way up the Stairway of the Stars achievement program as they complete units in the four worlds: The World of Truth (basic Christian doctrine), The World Around You (missions), The World About You (activities), and The World Within You (character development). Memorization, projects, and Bible reading are all a part of completing the achievement program as an Honor Star.
Girls Only Club gives girls a place to grow in God. Discussion-oriented units include women in ministry, college and career, truth, dating, pro-life vs. pro-choice, and attitude. Six-lesson units are complemented with projects and Adventures. Completion of unit requirements and Bible reading make a girl eligible to be a Girls Only Graduate.

WOUNDS THAT HEAL
I remember hearing stories in high school about self-mutilation and wondering how someone could do that to her own body. It made no sense. My immediate conclusion was that it had to be for attention. What else could drive a person to do such a thing? I also remember knowing that something like that would never be a problem for me. I was too strong to ever resort to hurting myself, or so I thought.
SELF-INJURING: A CRY FOR HELP
“…By his wounds we are healed”. (Isaiah 53:5) “Sometimes I cut myself. Sometimes I burn myself.” She was a beautiful 16-year-old girl explaining her secret behaviors for when she felt overwhelmed with life and hurtful memories. I was a 23-year-old youth pastor trying to listen and help, feeling stunned by behavior I had heard of but never seen.
Keeping Girls Motivated
As a leader of teen girls you know this age group doesn’t fall into rigidly–structured programs like younger girls. Teen girls share their opinions of club format. So how do you react? Don’t take it personally; consider it their investment in the club. However, if their comments have you wondering how to keep up attendance, try these five suggestions.
