Parents, would you like your daughters to be more Christ-like at home, church, school and in their community? Town Creek is proud to host American Heritage Girls Troop 0250, a Christ-centered scouting program for girls (ages 5-18). AHG seeks to develop the whole child – physically, mentally, and spiritually. Girls earn badges doing age-appropriate activities in diverse areas of interest. AHG also stresses the importance of service to the community through service projects throughout the year.
At every meeting, American Heritage Girls are recognized for the way they exemplify the AHG Oath - I promise to love God, cherish my family, honor my country and serve in my community. We also recognize how they exemplify the AHG Creed - As an American Heritage Girl I promise to be: Compassionate, Helpful, Honest, Loyal, Perseverant, Pure, Resourceful, Respectful, Responsible and Reverent.

A Message from the Troop Coordinator
American Heritage Girls began at Town Creek Baptist Church in January 2016 with 7 girls. We give God the glory because we now have 15 girls who earn scouting badges, work on service projects, and most importantly are growing in Christ every day. We have seen four of our girls receive Jesus into their heart as Savior and Lord this year.
Every week I witness and receive reports of our girls exemplifying the AHG Oath and AHG Creed. While we were packing meals for hungry children, a preteen told me that she loves to serve. One of the adults helping to pack the meals was amazed at how perseverant our youngest girl was, staying with the job she was assigned to do without complaining. Some girls show compassion by caring for siblings or other family members. Our girls are helpful around their homes, respectful to their teachers and others in authority and responsible with their school work. Three of our girls have received awards at school for excellent character.
I am so proud of these girls and I am glad to be part of an organization that strives to build women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. I am thankful for all the leaders from Town Creek who help make this a reality and for all the parents who reinforce Christ-like character traits in their daughters.
If you would like your daughter to participate in AHG, I would love to talk to you and tell you more about our program.
