Girls in Action (GA)
Girls in Action (G.A.'s) is a missions organization for girls in grades 1-6 which promotes prayer and giving for missions, and learning and doing missions. This wonderful group of girls meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00. Their meetings include a Bible Story, Missionary Study, or Mission Project, activities such as crafts and games, scripture memory, a snack, and prayer time. Many meetings they often do things for other people. You also might find them making their own food or learning an activity outside.
The G.A.'s are very active. This past year, in September they participated in a G.A. Track Meet with other G.A.'s in our association. Come October, they gathered items to put in shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. Then, they had a Packing Party and had fun filling the boxes for kids around the world who wouldn't get anything else for Christmas. The girls really enjoyed their G.A. Sleepover and getting to know each other better last November. In December, they participated in the Henrietta Christmas Parade by riding in a float and throwing out candy. They also had a Bake Sale that day to raise money to offset their G.A. Camp expenses. In February they went to a sister church for another associational event called a G.A. Sewing Day. There they made Comfort Pillows. Many of them had never sewed before but enjoyed learning. The end of March they attended the R.A. Track Meet (which let girls attend). In April the girls will be sewing tote bags to give to kids who are going through a hard time. They will be filling them with fun items. Then, in May they will have an End-of-the-Year Recognition Service, where the girls will get new badges for their vests, enjoy a slideshow of the year, and have supper. Then in June many of the girls attend camp. G.A.'s is super fun and we all enjoy being together, learning more about God, and being "on mission" for Him.
G.A.'s is lead by Julie Laude, Claudia Bates, and Megan Bolton.
