What do I need to get started? Depending on the needs of your teen girls, you may choose to use the curriculum or merit studies. For the curriculum, order one copy of Year One, The YLM Connection: Relationships and Beyond for $25.00. This book includes reproducibles for the students. A variety of Merit Studies (Bible Studies) are listed at the bottom of this page. A charm bracelet may be purchased as well as charms that accompany each merit study. Prices and descriptions are posted on online shopping or you may contact the Girls Ministries Department to receive catalog pages (“Contact” tab). You may charter your club and receive membership cards for free. Please go to the Resources tab, Chartering. This is what you need to begin.
The YLM Connection, Relationships and Beyond, is a three-year curriculum series for girls in grades seven through twelve. The curriculum is structured for maximum flexibility and a variety of group sizes and meeting frequencies. The curriculum’s main focus is that of the teen girl’s relationships in four specific areas: God, themselves, others and the church. Each section contains six lessons for a total of 24 power sessions per year. The class sessions address relevant issues relating to common concerns of teens today and can be taught in any order, depending upon the specific needs of individual groups.
Regardless of the size of your church or club, you will enjoy a renewed exhilaration of a thriving Girls Club using this teacher-friendly curriculum. Opportunity is provided in each lesson for open communication and sharing experiences that address specific concerns.
The goals throughout the curriculum are to:
Aid in understanding through the presence of perception during A Time of Change.
Assist in personal and ministerial development with principles of participation in A Time of Choice.
Prepare the teen girls to go on the offense, equipped with the power connection of the Holy Spirit bringing the product of power throughout A Time of Challenge.
