Girls in Action (GA) Meet every Wednesday Evening 6:00pm-7:00pm
Girls in Action (GA) is an exciting and fun-filled missions education organization for girls in grades 1-6. GA is just one of the missions education organizations offered by Woman's Missionary Union (WMU). WMU provides a full line of resources for GA and other age-level organizations. Through GA, girls gain a greater understanding of God's work in the world and how they can join Him in His work.
As GAs meet and learn together, they "travel" to various places around the world learning about the work of missionaries, praying for others, learning what the Bible says about missions and serving others, and learning what they can do in their own communities to serve and share Jesus with others. GA helps girls gain a biblical worldview that challenges them to live a missions lifestyle everywhere they go and in whatever they may do.
