On Wednesday, June 21st, the Girls Ministries groups visited C.R. Bucks. The children and adults were treated to ice cream cones. A group of adults and children walked the circumference of the deer pen.
We saw bucks, does and a fawn! Some of the children screamed with excitement when they saw the fawn and he quickly ran to the other side of the enclosure.
Everyone had a nice time and we look forward to going back again next year.

Look to God Alone
Read Ezekiel 29:1 through 32:32
Published: Aug 18, 2017
Why was God angry with Egypt? He should have been angry with Judah because the people of Judah were the ones who sought help from the Egyptians, instead of seeking help from God (Ezekiel 17:15). God did punish His people for their rejection of Him, allowing the Babylonians to overpower and destroy them. But does it make sense that God also sent the Babylonians to destroy Egypt? It makes perfect sense.
“You have been a staff of reed for the people of Israel. When they grasped you with their hands, you splintered and you tore open their shoulders; when they leaned on you, you broke and their backs were wrenched” (Ezekiel 29:6–7).
Every good father disciplines his children. But no loving father permits harm to his child. Israel got hurt when it turned to Egypt for help. In Jeremiah 42 God plainly warned His people not to flee to Egypt or disaster would follow. This is one reason Israel’s Heavenly Father brought down Egypt. God does not threaten in vain. He will keep His word.
Prayer Suggestion: Thank You, Father, that we can look to You for security, no matter what we face.
Quicklook: Ezekiel 29:1–10
What is Girls Ministries?
Girls Ministries is a ministry for winning girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Girls Ministries provides an environment of support and accountability while helping girls to develop their gifts and abilities. In addition, girls build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage girls to be spiritual leaders. Girls Ministries is dividing into three sections of clubs; Kids Clubs for nursery and preschool children, Girls Clubs for elementary school girls, and Teen Girls Ministries (TGM) for middle school and high school girls. Girl Ministries uses small beginnings to make a big impact on girls and their world.

WOUNDS THAT HEAL
I remember hearing stories in high school about self-mutilation and wondering how someone could do that to her own body. It made no sense. My immediate conclusion was that it had to be for attention. What else could drive a person to do such a thing? I also remember knowing that something like that would never be a problem for me. I was too strong to ever resort to hurting myself, or so I thought.
SELF-INJURING: A CRY FOR HELP
“…By his wounds we are healed”. (Isaiah 53:5) “Sometimes I cut myself. Sometimes I burn myself.” She was a beautiful 16-year-old girl explaining her secret behaviors for when she felt overwhelmed with life and hurtful memories. I was a 23-year-old youth pastor trying to listen and help, feeling stunned by behavior I had heard of but never seen.
Keeping Girls Motivated
As a leader of teen girls you know this age group doesn’t fall into rigidly–structured programs like younger girls. Teen girls share their opinions of club format. So how do you react? Don’t take it personally; consider it their investment in the club. However, if their comments have you wondering how to keep up attendance, try these five suggestions.
