This Fall is packed with events from a backpacking or canoeing trip to a historical trip to Philadelphia. This winter we will be doing many crafts and 'indoor activities' including baking cookies and making a Christmas craft. We have many Tuesday night activities planned as well, such as baking cobbler, bonfires, and wilderness survival preparations.
Challengers... who are we?
Challengers, part of the Pioneer Girls ministry, is a ministry designed for the discipleship of young women (7th-12th grade). Led by older women and a team of college-age women, Challengers are taught all 'aspects' of being a Godly woman from putting together floral arrangements and baking cookies to building a campfire and going canoeing. Every opportunity is made to point these girls to their Creator and encourage them in their relationship with Him.
Challengers meet every Tuesday night from 7:00pm - 9:15 pm at Forcey Bible Church in Silver Spring, MD. At every meeting, there are games and fun times but also a time for devotion and discussion and a time for the girls to pray together and share what God is doing in their lives.
Throughout the year, Challengers participates in various service projects and weekend trips as well. A highlight year after year is "Equipping the Saints". The group heads out to Virginia to help the ETS staff sort clothing and donations for less-fortunate families. We also spend time in creation, going on hikes and canoe trips every year.
