The Youth Build at Heartland Worship is going to be the place where every 12 year-old girl in the region is going to want to be. Let me tell you what this New Year's Eve party is about and why we are doing it. First let me introduce myself. I am part of a special team of women from several local churches who have come together to create an exciting and fun party every year just for 12-year-old girls. They are at a very important age. As girls, entering our teen years is a right of passage towards adulthood. At 12, a girl is right at the front door of this critical and wonderful transition in her life. Our party is also a youth conference designed to give these girls an important gift to carry into this new phase of pre-adulthood. That gift is the gift of confidence in their INCOMPARABLE value. If at this point in my life I had understood that my beauty was incomparable, that I could only truly shine in my beauty when I was shining from the inside out, and that I had a special place in this world …..oh the wonderful changes that I would see now in my life! This is the gift we feel God wants to give to each 12 year-old girl. This is why we are doing what we are doing. Sure, the party will be LOTS of fun and full of excitement! We will have prizes and games and music and food. The girls will have the time of their life. But our goal is to make it so fun that they will never forget it! That they will never forget the night they KNEW (perhaps for the first time) what makes them so amazing. The night they KNEW they were incomparably beautiful and valuable. This knowledge will help them navigate the temptations and decisions they will face as they enter their teen years. We know this is the knowledge parents have worked so hard to give them. We want to partner with parents in giving these girls the chance to see themselves the way God sees them - PERFECT!
We are excited to have the support of several local churches including:
