“But Jesus said, ‘Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these’.” Matthew 19:14
“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you teach in the way you live, in your love, your faith and your purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12
Children have a special place in the family of God. Despite the minor status of children in Biblical times, Jesus lifted the child as the epitome of faithfulness. American Heritage Girls serves as both an outreach to unchurched girls and a faith builder to those currently in your church or school. AHG is a perfect complement to Sunday School, youth ministries, and Bible memorization clubs. The benefits of the AHG Program to your church and school are many!
Through a strong service program, AHG guides girls to follow Jesus’s command to “Love one another as I have loved you.” AHG also grows each girl to be a leader in her faith, giving her strength to share her testimony with others.
Would AHG help you attain your youth ministry’s goals? Begin by asking some key questions:
- Is there a need for a program like this in our community? Are there children in our community who need wholesome leadership and character development opportunities?
- Does our ministry agree to the AHG Statement of Faith ?
- Are there caring, compassionate, and concerned individuals in our church, school, or community who would be excited to give of their time and talents and take leadership roles in an AHG Troop?
To bring the AHG Program to the girls in your community, visit the Start a Troop page and call the Troop Development Coach for your state at (513) 771-2025 for next steps.
