BLAZE is the Walking With Purpose program developed for middle-school-age girls. Our mission in Blaze is to speak truth into the hearts of girls who are bombarded by lies about their true worth and beauty. Every week they are introduced to a lie in our culture which is then countered with a biblical truth. The Bible becomes relevant, and girls begin to recognize the difference between the loving, affirming voice of their heavenly Father and the voices that tell them they aren’t good enough. Teaching these young girls how to use the Bible as a tool for spiritual growth encourages daily prayer and strengthens their bond with God and family. (From Blaze: Middle School Girl’s Curriculum Leader’s Guide). Meetings will be held Fridays, 6:30-7:30 pm and will continue 2-3 times per month until May.
