Jr. High Girls Dgroup
Tutor: Katie Plaisted Email: katie@katietravisfilms.com
Length: Semester Class or Full Year Class Period: Thursday mornings from 9:30 - 10:15 a.m. (during period 1)

Description: Who am I? What is a young woman? Who is God? What is my purpose? What is His Plan? This group will be a safe place to hang out and talk about the real stuff and the significant questions all girls have in the light of God’s Truth and what He says about us. As we venture through our group devotional, explore God’s Word, and pray for each other each week we will learn how to grow in faith and character and become the beautiful daughters of the King of kings God has created us to be. Each week we will come together with our findings and questions, and seek to discover a deeper realization of who God is and in Him who we are.

Note:  This class is 45 minutes in length.  The tuition will be prorated accordingly.
