Beginning this summer!
June 24-28 8:30-1PM (During the same times as our scheduled Summer PREP)
Girl Genius is a program to empower young women to better understand their nature, dignity and special role in society. It is a fun, relaxed, small group experience with activities, reflection and journaling sessions that focus on issues affecting middle school girls today.
The world tries to convince young women that their dignity comes from having the right body type, hairstyle, clothes, athletic talents, or academic abilities. But in truth, they have dignity simply because they exist as human beings created in God’s image and likeness. Their intrinsic dignity is given to them freely as a gift from God, and nothing they do can ever add or subtract from this gift. They cherish God’s gift by choosing to live in a way that upholds their dignity.
We will cover the first program – Defining Dignity
