What Some of Our Kids Are Doing These Days
American Heritage Girls is a Christ-centered leadership and character-development ministry. You can find its statement of faith here (a PDF file). Our girls troop meets at our church Wednesdays at 4:00 p.m.
Coming Very Soon!
Parents and children are invited to take part in this year's "Operation Christmas Child" campaign that our church's troop of American Heritage Girls will coordinate.
Last Year's "Operation Christmas Child" Filled 50 Shoeboxes!
Here are the details for this year's operation, which starts on November 15.
We'll start by collecting items that we'll pack into Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoeboxes, suited for boys and for girls, ages 2 through 14. A donation of $9 per box is requested to help pay the cost for Samaritan's Purse to ship and share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our "packing party" will be on Wednesday, November 15, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., at the cabin. Please to learn how children can easily join American Heritage Girls so they'll be able to party with us and pack and pray over each shoebox.
Note: You're welcome to take boxes home to fill them, however, you'll need to return them on or before November 12.
Donation suggestions: tooth brushes; combs and hair brushes; washcloths; bars of soap; deodorant sticks; nail clippers and files; reusable plastic containers such as cups, water bottles, plates, bowls, and blunt-edged utensils; sunglasses; hats; socks; T-shirts; school supplies; and underwear
Do NOT include these items: candy; toothpaste; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food items; seeds; fruit rolls or fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.
Please to join American Heritage Girls and/or to sign up for our big OCC "packing and praying party" on Wednesday the 15th.
Today, as AHG gratefully celebrates 20 years of God's blessings, the need for Christ-centered programs is stronger than ever. Contact to learn more about joining our troop or assisting its ministry efforts.
