What is the Nationwide Girls Ministries Sleepover? Each spring a Sleepover planning guide is available for download and also mailed to all churches with clubs. The event is scheduled on the fourth Friday of September. For elementary-age girls, it is a great way to begin your clubs year and invite visitors to your church. The theme for each year's Sleepover corresponds with the Coins for Kids project. The planning guide includes a planning time line; suggestions for activities, décor, snacks; and a devotional. Sleepover Packets will be mailed out late spring and will also available for free download.
2015 Sleepover Theme: ART PARTY (September 25-26, 2015)
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered! I can't even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up, you are still with me!
Psalm 139:17-18, NLT
These verses are foundational for this year's Art Party themed Nationwide Sleepover. The verses are woven throughout each of the night's events so girls can internalize how very important they are to the God who created them. As girls express their creativity, they will discover that God views each of them as His own creative masterpiece.
Girls also have the chance to show girls in Bangladesh how important they are to God as they raise money for our 2015 Coins for Kids Project, Uttam's Place.
Sleepover/Theme Packets will be mailed late spring and will also be available for download on our website in May. We've packed in guided stations, decor ideas, recipes, and activity suggestions to make your event planning a breeze! Included in your packet is a DVD with everything you can imagine to help you prepare for the 2015-2016 Girls Ministries year, National Girls Ministries Week, and the 2015 Nationwide Girls Ministries Sleepover.
Sleepover Mailing: The Sleepover Packet mailing list is compiled of churches that have given to CFK and/or NGM week in 2014, and/or purchased any Girls Ministries product in excess of $10 or more in 2014. If this does not include your church, everything that is mailed out will be available on our website for free download.
