EUREKA - A program to build girls’ self-esteem will be held at Eureka United Methodist Church, 208 N. Callender St., from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on eight consecutive Sundays in February and March. The free program that will begin Feb. 3 is open to girls in fourth through sixth grades. It will focus on redefining society’s perception of beauty and discovering how God views beauty in people, according to program organizer Sue Knepp.
“Younger adolescent girls are being faced with issues that they are emotionally and mentally not equipped to process yet,” Knepp said. “As parents, we are struggling to overcome the generational gap to help prepare our daughters for the harsh realities of life. In order to grow beautiful young ladies, we must nurture them and instill in them what beauty really is,” she said.
The program will examine women role models in the Bible and will feature guest speakers and activities that will cover health, nutrition, exercise, hygiene, appropriate and modest dress, etiquette, friendships and parents. The program will culminate in a graduation ceremony.
Participants do not need to be members of Eureka United Methodist Church. To register or for more information, call the church office at 467-3026 by Jan. 20. The number of participants is limited. Depending on the response, the church may offer the program again.
