AHG Prayer Locker

The AHG Prayer Locker is a place for AHG girl members to submit prayer requests and praise reports! AHG wants to know how God is working in the lives of girl members and ways in which AHG Staff can help pray. Encourage your girls to visit to share what God has on their heart. "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Volunteers/Leaders for AHG

Our troop has been very blessed with wonderful leadership this year. As the school year winds down we are looking ahead to the fall when AHG will begin again. We are always looking for good leaders to work with our girls. Would you consider taking a leadership role in our troop? If you would like more information please see Amanda Malphrus
