Bright Lights

"Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example
of the believers in word, in conversation,
in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
1 Timothy 4:12


I am excited to announce the start of something that the Lord has long laid upon my heart to begin — a discipleship group for girls! It's called Bright Lights, and the purpose of this group is to encourage the pursuit of Godliness, to provide positive peer pressure and accountability during these important decision-making years, and to have a group which will minister to others. It is for girls ages 10-18. At each Bright Lights meeting, I will share a lesson covering Biblical principles, character traits of godliness, and other topics that will be essential for us as we aim to be strong for the Lord. Each lesson will be reinforced by testimonies from older girls in the group. Our group will also enjoy singing, activities, biographies, and snacks & tea.

Bright Lights meetings will be held at the Covenant Church in Bemidji every other Thursday starting November 1st, 2007 – 6:30pm–8:00pm.

I look forward to discovering what the Lord is going to teach me and the girls who come! If you or someone you know would like more information on Bright Lights, don't hesitate to contact me!

That's wonderful! I would have loved something like that growing up. I know the girls will love having you as a leader in such an important part of their growing up years.

Mindy-We are so happy for your group. Our Bright Lights group down here in southern MN is going great. We should be prayer partners with your group! We could share group requests and stay in touch! Just an idea. Keep us posted on how it goes!

What a great idea! With all the negative influences out there, kids need to have a positive place to help them stay grounded in their faith.
