The Nationwide Girls Ministries Event occurs annually on the fourth Friday of September, but it can be held on another night, if that works better for your church. For elementary-age girls, it’s a great way to launch the year and invite guests to church. To plan the event, use this Planning Guide. The Event Planning Guide includes:
- a planning timeline
- suggestions for activities
- decor and snacks
The event is designed for any church to use. It is a great tool for outreach to the community and includes a salvation message!
The 2020-2021 Nationwide Event is BeYOUtiful. It is based on 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV) "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." Every girl is beautiful because she was individually designed and created in the image of the ultimate Creator, God. That is makes every girl BeYOUtiful!
Throughout the night, girls will explore the truth of this verse in four unique and fun stations and help Princess Sparkle get her sparkle back! They will also learn about the 2020-2021 Coins for Kids projects: Vanuatu and COMPACT Family Services. We are raising money to give kids in Vanuatu and at COMPACT Family Services an opportunity to achieve their dreams!

Shine Bright: Glow Party
The 2019 Nationwide Event is Shine Bright: Glow Party. It is based on John 8:12 (NIV) "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." When girls understand they were made by God, in His image, and have purpose in their lives, they don't have to be afraid to shine bright for all the world! Throughout the night, girls will travel from Glow Station to Glow Station to discover the many ways the Holy Spirit empowers them to Shine Bright for Jesus!
