The topics we will cover include:
Session 1 - The Heartbeat of Purity -
The Lord has a far deeper purpose in purity than meets the eye. It is crucial that we understand the value of having a heart (and hence a life) that is so pure that we are clearly able to see, know, and glorify the Lord in the way for which we were created to. This is where true and lasting fulfillment is found. This is to be our motivation for purity, which should lead us to not see how close we can get to sin, but how far from it we can go.
Session 2 - Purity in Real Life -
How does true purity manifest itself in real life? What does it look like? We are going to cover what it means and looks like to love the Lord our God through purity of our heart, soul, mind and strength. We will cover what purity looks like in; heart (loving Christ above all), soul (having a clear conscience, not tolerating sin), mind (thoughts, etc), strength (actions, words, physical, and modest appearance).
Session 3 - Relationships, Your Future, and the Will of God -
We are going to look at a pure approach to relationships with young men, to considering marriage, and to trusting God for his best for your life. We will cover this with a challenge to live very area of life with our main purpose in life and in mind—glorifying God and enjoying Him forever!
Session 4 - A Call to Transforming Purity -
Once we have seen a picture of transforming purity, one thing remains; how YOU are going to respond? You are called to live a vibrant life of purity for Christ that glorifies Him, fulfills you, and blesses others. It is your decision and you will reap the results. How will you embrace this call and experience all the Lord has in store?

At the last Girls Gathering we listened to a message by Amy called “Getting a Vision From the Lord for Your Life”. We all enjoyed this message immensely and God spoke to us in wonderful and special ways! We spent some time reading a list of ministry ideas that the Lord may want us to do in the coming year.
Here is a list of some of those things:
- Praying for people, missionaries, etc.
- Pass out Gospel tracts.
- Writing notes, sending e-mails, or making calls of encouragement in the Lord to others (friends, younger girls or children, pastor, missionaries, parents)
- Serving your family.
- Teaching your siblings Bible verses, doing a Bible study with them, praying together
- Be involved in ministry at church, when able. Help with Sunday School, AWANA, in the kitchen, in the nursery, etc.
- Earn and find ways to save money so that you can support missions.
- Mentoring those younger than you (children, girls)
- Start a Girls Discipleship Group
- Sharing the Gospel
- Seek to be of help when you are at other people’s homes or at events
- Do all that you do for the Lord and His glory
We had a very special time sharing prayer requests with each other and then committed to pray for each other during this month. What a blessing it is to be encouraged and supported in prayer by wonderful sister’s in Christ.
We would love for you to join us for the next Girls Gathering February 13th from 10:00-12:30 at Vision of Glory Church as we hear Amy speak on "Witnessing and Gaining a Passion for Souls" and as we encourage each other on in Jesus.
