One of our members, Anna Rogness, spoke a few Sundays ago about an organization called American Heritage Girls. A number of Kingsway moms and daughters are currently involved in AHG and we recently agreed to sponsor a new chapter as a local church. A short summary from Anna on their mission is copied below. If you’d like to get involved, simply email Anna for more information.
American Heritage Girls is the premier national character development organization for girls ages 5-18 that embraces Christian values and encourages family involvement. It is a Christ-centered scouting organization that offers six different program emphases including life skill enhancement, girl leadership, spiritual development, social development, developing teamwork and building confidence, and character development. The mission of AHG is “Building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.” AHG is all about faith, service and fun! AHG helps girls acquire skills that will assist them in all areas of life. Girls have lots of fun by being with other girls in Troop meetings, field trips, camp-outs and special events. Girls have the opportunity to grow in their spiritual walk as they learn more about God, how to walk in faith, and learn about the need to seek God’s will in their lives. AHG’s hope is that each and every girl will experience the Lord in all parts of the AHG program.
Personally, I love walking life beside my daughter in a way that gives feet to our faith with a course of action. Having a fun, intentional direction to change our world for Christ through relationships, grows our faith for God’s amazing work in our world, today, right now. In addition to the foundation laid here at church I envision AHG allowing diverse opportunities for our girls to impact their community being on the front lines of Kingdom building.
