Sahamamama Posted July 25, 2012 Share Posted July 25, 2012 The national boys' church program for the Assemblies of God is called Royal Rangers, and (IMO) it has been and still is a great program for boys. The national girls' church program is now called Mpact Girls Club -- used to be called Missionettes -- and it has been and is so... underwhelming. :tongue_smilie:I don't mean the individual ministries carried out by local churches, in which the leaders try to make do with pathetic materials. I mean the curricular material itself. Something about it bothers me. It feels like marshmallow fluff to me -- all sweet and "relevant" and "hip" but no meat on the bone. A badge in hair care and nail care? :tongue_smilie:It's called the "Grooming" badge, and the subtitle is "You can't put whipped cream on a garbage can." :confused: What? And more of the same. And it's the same predictable material, year after year, without a noticeable upgrade of challenge in the later levels. At least as far as I have been able to determine. What else is there for girls? American Heritage Girls? -- the nearest club is an hour away from us. Girl Scouts? -- I'll look into this more, but not sure about the current philosophy. AWANA? -- there is a church that does AWANA in our town, but I haven't heard back from the director. What else is there? :bigear: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
