AHG is honored to invite you to a night of celebration
Thursday, September 17, 2020
American Heritage Girls is celebrating God’s faithfulness over the last 25 years, and the provision He has in store for future generations.
Our world is desperate for change: for light, hope, love. Our culture is simultaneously erasing God and thirsting for the life-giving water only He can provide. The American Heritage Girls (AHG) Ministry has a rich history in sharing the promises of Christ with the next generation.
. . .
AHG has proven to be an effective catalyst for building women of integrity who follow Christ. AHG’s legacy has been the spread of Christ’s redeeming love in our world, ultimately growing His kingdom. The Holy Spirit has left an indelible mark on the hearts of generations of girls through AHG. In 25 years of ministering to girls, families, and communities nationwide, we can already see the impact AHG’s legacy is making. It’s our duty to continue this incredible ministry He has given us and share the love of our Heavenly Father with His girls.
We invite you to join in sustaining this legacy for generations to come through this opportunity to invest.
