We have officially made it to the halfway point of 2017!
As you look back to what 2017 has been like for you, take some time praise God for the accomplishments as well as the fails. It is not easy to be disciplined or to carry on New Year’s resolutions but it is also never too late to begin one today. What do you feel God has been calling you to step out and do or not do? What barriers do you face in becoming more spiritually mature? It is important to remember that through Him, all things are possible and He will continue to supply you with perseverance and grace. Celebrate small victories and plan for the second half of 2017 to be even better physically and spiritually! One day at a time, you got this!
“This is the day which the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24, NASB
By now, many of you have heard and hopefully checked out the awesome new resources for troops! If you have not, check them out below:
Troops High Award Spreadsheet (Leader)
The attached chart serves as a fill-able chart for the Troop leader. It is currently mapped out to fit all of the resources but can be adjusted according to what works best for your corps!
Sunbeams Devotional Book
Although Sunbeams learn a ton of character building lessons through troops, let us take it a step further and encourage them to begin a regular devotional life with this new resource! With this, we can bridge the gap between outreach & discipleship!
Updated Emblem Compatibility Chart
The attached document helps you map out troop programs that have multiple troops in one class. Here you will find the emblems grouped up by content.
Girl Guards High Award Chart
The attached charts serve as a journey for Sunbeams & Girl Guards to work on completing emblems to achieve High Awards. As the they complete the emblem, they can add the date and be enthusiastic to complete and achieve more!
Some of you have noticed the typo on the Girl Guards chart—we apologize for the confusion. The requirements for the General’s Guard and Catherine Booth awards have not changed. Please refer to the application for the required badges.
