“Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!” Matthew 20:17-19, NIV
Jesus knew it was coming. He knew this was the big task He was to complete. Although He knew what was to come, He walked willingly towards death, in our name, and conquered it three days later when He rose again. Take a moment to soak that in.
As we meditate on this great sacrifice this month, may we be reminded of the personal and willing sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave His life for our ransom. Personally– for you.
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!
Due to the new resources, you will start to notice that the emblems are not in sync with the season, but more leaning towards the goal in completing the emblems necessary to obtain that specific award. Keep in mind that this is only a resource– you can always change the badge you’d like to do at your discretion.
