BLAZE is a Walking with Purpose ministry for teen/tween girls.
It was created to counteract the way our society drives girls to question their identity, worth and beauty.
Through BLAZE, we emphasize how a girl's identity is rooted in Christ as God's chosen, beloved daughter.
This spring we will introduce Discovering My Purpose which teaches
the girls about their unique purpose, gifts, and God’s love.

DISCOVERING MY PURPOSE:

“BLAZE made me realize that it’s okay to have doubts. To grow stronger in your faith, we have to ask questions, and I feel that it's a big part of BLAZE. I also feel that every time I walk out of BLAZE, my faith is stronger.”
-Isabella, Grade 8
“I learned many things this year from BLAZE, but the lesson that mostly stood out to me it doesn’t matter what you look like, you are always beautiful to God.”
-Katie, Grade 8
"I loved BLAZE because it taught us that God is always with us. BLAZE talks about how we don’t need to have popular friends, we make important decisions and we are beautiful inside and out. BLAZE taught me so much, and I hope I get to do it again in 8th grade."
-Abigail, Grade 7
