Rainbows Club and Girls Ministries is a program for winning girls (and preschool boys) to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Girls Ministries Clubs provide an environment of support and accountability while helping girls (and preschool boys) to develop their gifts and abilities. In addition, participants build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage them to be spiritual leaders.
The Girls Ministries at Maranatha offers four clubs for girls and preschool boys on Wednesday evenings at 7 pm in the Main Building and Family Life Center.
Rainbows is for preschool girls and boys ages 3-5, in the Main Building. Noah's Ark provides an exciting theme for the Bible stories, crafts, full-color activity pages, and games for this preschool club. Rainbows add colorful animal badges to their vests as they complete requirements for the achievement program.
Daisies is for kindergarten girls, in the Main Building. Darcy, Diana and Dorie (paper dolls) help Daisies make life applications from the Bible stories and principles they learn. Daisies earn colorful badges depicting these club characters as they complete requirements for the achievement program.
Prims is for first and second grade girls, in the Main Building. Megan, Carmen, Kim and Tonya guide Prims through life-application stories as the girls learn biblical principles. The Discovery Box stores lesson-related objects to be displayed during lesson time to make learning even more fun. Prims earn colorful badges depicting these club characters as they complete requirements for the achievement program.
Stars is for third through fifth grade girls, in the Family Life Center. Girls make their way up the Stairway of Stars achievement program as they complete units in the four worlds: The World of Truth (basic Christian doctrine), The World Around You (missions), The World About You (activities), and The World Within You (character development). Memorization, projects, and Bible reading are all a part of completing the achievement program as an Honor Star.
Friends is for sixth through eighth grade girls, in the Family Life Center. Friends Clubs provides discussion-oriented lessons to continue the Titus 2 principle of women mentoring young girls. Topics of study include the sanctity of life, accountability, commitment to Christ, life-controlling problems, purity, and choices. The completion of unit requirements and Bible reading make a girl eligible to be a Friends graduate.
