Attention 7th, 8th & 9th Grade Girls!

First of 20 weekly lessons starts on September 28th

BLAZE is forming groups at St. Benedict! BLAZE is the Walking with Purpose ministry for tween/teen girls. The mission of BLAZE is to use Scripture to speak truth into the hearts of young girls who are bombarded by lies about their true worth and beauty. Each week, participants will be led through an ice breaker activity and a short lesson based on a lie found in the world and a truth found in Scripture. The girls will also leave with a small take-home gift which corresponds with the lesson. Click HERE to learn more . Click HERE to see the twenty week calendar.
