River's Edge Fellowship


 

Mpact Girls Clubs is a program for winning girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Mpact provides an environment of support and accountability while helping girls to develop their gifts and abilities. In addition, girls build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage girls to be spiritual leaders.  

The first Mpact club was officially chartered in January 1956. Since then, Mpact clubs continue to be organized across the United States and in many foreign countries. Along the way, revisions have been made, such as age- and grade-level changes, additions, and modifications in the achievement programs. But the ultimate purpose of Missionettes:winning girls to Jesus Christ and teaching them to live victoriously has never changed.

What is the greatest lesson you learned in Mpact
There were many, but the one that comes to mind was in the Know Your Talents unit. I learned how to discover my talents, to look for opportunities to serve others with those talents, and to ask God to show me opportunities to develop my talents so that He might be honored and glorified.

What fun memory would you like to share? 
Camp outs and sleepovers were always fun, but the opportunity as I got older to play the piano and be a part of the worship team at sectional & district events are my most fun memories.

What would you like to tell others about the Mpact program? 
I would tell others not to give up. It all pays off in the end. Whenever you face challenges in life, you can look back at all you've learned inMpact and it will help you make the right choices. I used to wear a T-shirt when I was a Daisy or a Prim that said Everything I really need to know, I'm learning in Mpact. I did!


I remember hearing stories in high school about self-mutilation and wondering how someone could do that to her own body.  It made no sense.  My immediate conclusion was that it had to be for attention. What else could drive a person to do such a thing?  I also remember knowing that something like that would never be a problem for me.  I was too strong to ever resort to hurting myself, or so I thought. 

MySpace. Xanga. FaceBook. Friendster. While these sites may not mean much to your parents, chances are they are at least part of your daily lingo and perhaps part of your daily lives. Social networking Web sites like these have swept the nation in the past year, allowing members to create their own online pages complete with photos, music, background graphics and, of course, the blog, an online personal journal.
