Girls, Grades 1-6
WMU® believes that it is never too soon to get involved in missions. That is why we offer a variety of ways to involve children in missions through missions education. This age-level organization tells stories of how God is working in the world today and teaches girls that they have a purpose in God’s plan. As girls engage in relevant curriculum they will begin to develop a biblical worldview and global perspective.
Involve your Girls in Action
Girls in Action® (GA®) is the missions organization of WMU for girls ages 6-11 or grades 1-6. This organization is guided by the objectives of WMU as girls learn about missions, pray for missions, give to missions, and do missions. They will develop a lifestyle of missions as they participate in the church and denomination. GA also serves as an opportunity for girls to develop leadership skills and engage in missions. Through learning experiences that teach the biblical basis of missions, international missions, North American missions, historical and contemporary missions, girls experience holistic discipleship which challenges them to be on mission in their home, school, and community.
Girls in Action is designed to meet weekly, with plans given through the curriculum named GA Leader. GA World is the member magazine and is used during the GA meeting for each girl. A GA Leader Kit is available to make the meetings attractive and colorful, as well as save time for the GA leader. In addition to learning about missions, girls will be able to learn how to apply the Bible to their lives, learn how to pray and intercede for others, and have a role model in their GA leader. Scripture memory is also a part of Girls in Action.
