1. Beauties Creed
(Recommended that all new groups start here)
We are beautiful, precious, priceless, promised and loved. God gives us an incredible identity in His word. Our identity from God is consistent, everlasting, and full of freedom. This curriculum dives into each facet of the Beauties Creed (statements of Biblical truth), which we recite and want to remember. Each statement is rooted in God’s Word. Throughout the year girls learn where these truths from God are located in the Bible and how God speaks to us through His Word.
2. We are Royalty
(All grade levels)
In a culture where women were often less valued than property or sheep, God flips it all on its head. When God created women, He called them ezer. In Hebrew this means providing valuable life-saving help (other times it’s used in the Bible to reference God). We are not a side thought, we are a vital part of God’s plan. All throughout the Bible, God elevates the status and importance of women. This year we will meet women of the Old Testament and New Testament, amazing role models, who exhibit the attributes of what it means to be God’s princess and live out the identity God has for them: Strong, beautiful, intelligent, risk-taker, compassionate, brave, and more!
3. Fruit of the Spirit
(All grade levels)
When we choose to put Christ in the center of our lives and follow Him, God promises that we will bear much fruit. This fruit is the life-giving “fruit of the Spirit”. Girls will learn about the third facet of the Trinity: God’s Holy Spirit, its role in God’s plan and how it is active in our lives. The theme highlights Galatians 5:22-23 and the promises of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. All which flow from our lives when we live out our identity in Christ.
4. What to Wear? (Armor of God)
(All grade levels)
What we wear sends a message and serves a purpose. Jesus calls his people to live a life differently; therefore, we must dress our spirits accordingly. Thankfully, God gives us guidance in what that looks like and He is the one that equips us with the attire. This theme explores what the apostle Paul describes as “wearing the Armor of God”. Line by line, the girls will learn what they can “wear” as followers of Jesus from Ephesians 6:10-18 to reflect their identity in Him.
5. Respond vs. React
(4th grade and up)
We are created in God’s image, which means we are relational and experience strong emotions. However, we are not perfect or Holy like God. We often struggle with how we approach our feelings. Recommended for upper grade levels, this theme tackles how we live out our identity in Christ and walk with God when it comes to strong emotions of sadness, anger, jealousy…. Girls reflect and learn how they can be intentional with their emotions instead of just reacting to the circumstances.
6. Investigating My Faith
Jeremiah 17:7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.”
When we have confidence in what is true of God: who He Is, His character, His redemptive plan, and how He communicates it with humanity, we can live in confidence in who He says we are-this is our identity in Christ. This theme addresses how questions can help us grow in our faith not further from it, especially when we seek answers from the Bible, scholars and pastors who have a strong foundation in theology, history, and the 1st century world. Girls will learn how we know the Bible is reliable and trustworthy, they will investigate who Jesus said He was, and they will address other tough questions that often come to mind as we get older. In addition, girls will come away with reliable resources they can explore and revisit as they want to learn more. God calls us “to love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ (Matthew 22:37 NLT), and this theme definitely engages the minds of our Beauties!
7. God Is In My Story
(6th-8th grade) *COMING SOON**
The Bible is a collection of 66 books written in 7 various genres from 49 different authors over a period of around 1,500 years; yet, miraculously, it tells a unified story all pointing to the saving work of Jesus! This year, girls will see how God is consistent in character, goodness and faithfulness from Genesis all the way to Revelation and how He continues to be consistent and active in our lives today! Part of our calling as believers is to live out our identity in Christ by sharing the Gospel and fulfilling the Great Commission. Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20). The best way to start is with our own story. No one can argue with our personal experience of how God has worked in our lives; and it is powerful. Not only will girls learn how the Bible is a unified story, but they will process how God has worked in their personal lives and write their own stories. A middle schooler has a story to tell, and it is a very important one!
8. Beyond Beauties
(Recommended as Last year) 7th/8th grade *COMING SOON**
Often, seventh or eighth grade is the last year of Beauties and it’s a fantastic year to develop valuable leadership skills that will carry the girls Beyond Beauties. It is important for our older Beauties to graduate from the ministry with confidence that they can stand firm in who they are in Christ and be a leader in the world around them. We learn leadership best by looking for examples and by practicing. Jesus is our ultimate example of a good leader: “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45). Whether a girl has grown up in Beauties or is participating for the first time, the Beyond Beauties year will prepare them for walking alongside others in faith by learning effective ways to study scripture, identifying qualities of a servant leader and taking opportunities to grow more confident by applying their leadership skills.
