On July 12, 2020, we will be offering a virtual “My Promise, My Faith” workshop and honoring Girl Scouts of all ages during our 10:30 am Kitchen Table Gathering on Facebook. Individuals and families are invited to tune in and Scouts are invited to wear their uniform. The bulletin for the service will be available here, the week leading up to the event. The service typically lasts 45 minutes.
Girl Scouts and families are invited to a Zoom workshop after the service (at 11:45 am) to earn the My Promise, My Faith pin. While Christian faith will be discussed at the workshop, all are welcome to participate. You do not need to be a member of Epiphany or member of any church to attend this event.
The workshop will last approximately one hour. The workshop will cover all five steps to earn the My Promise, My Faith pin, and will be focused on the “respect myself and others” part of the Girl Scout Law. For the interview portion of the pin, Scouts will have the opportunity to ask a question of Bishop Leila Ortiz, the first woman and first Latina serving as Bishop of the Metropolitan DC Synod of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). Scouts will also be invited to make a “My Promise / My Faith” booklet and a swap. Materials needed for the swap are typical household items or you can substitute other items you have on hand. Local participants can pick-up materials for the workshop in advance of the event in Silver Spring, MD. The booklet will also be available digitally for printing at home.
Scouts who participate will receive a “Faith” fun patch (either with the packet they pickup in advance, or it will be mailed to you after the event).
