Our Purpose

To guide girls to realize the joy of a Christ-centered life and how joyfully they can serve Him; their church; their family and their community.  LGP provides an avenue for girls  to develop leadership skills and to become service oriented, mission-minded young women.
 
"And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in knowledge of God."  Colossians 1:10

Lutheran Girl Pioneers (LGP) is a Christ-centered youth ministry for the girls of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Church and those in fellowship with the WELS.  It is our desire to inspire youth to realize the joy of a Christ-centered life, while building strong Christian character and values.
Although camping and building fires might come to mind when you hear of Pioneers, today Pioneers is so much more!  It is an opportunity for girls to discover and develop interests in many areas such as drama, art, photography, and leadership.
In a nutshell, Lutheran Girl Pioneers strives to help young girls grow up to be happy, confident  Christian women serving our Lord in their church, school, home and community.

How The LGP Works

There are five possible levels in the total Lutheran Girl Pioneer program

 
SUNBEAMS For first and second graders (sometimes kindergartners). The girls participate in fun activities through the "Explorer", "Friends", "Helpers" and "Funmaker" categories.

 
TRAVELERS For third and fourth graders.

 
TRAILBLAZERS Generally fifth and sixth graders.

 
HOMESTEADERS Generally seventh and eighth graders.

 
SPINNERS Mainly high school age girls. The program is unstructured but service oriented.

 
The activities and/or requirements for the Sunbeam, Traveler, Trailblazer and Homesteader levels each take approximately two years to complete. As a new caravan you will receive a library which will contain suggestions for work schedules, teaching aids, resource materials and devotional helps which will aid you in helping the girls to achieve this.

 
Over and above the level requirements, SPECIAL ACHIEVEMENTS can be worked on by the girls in several areas, such as babysitting, ecology, drama, sewing, handicrafts, gardening, and art.

 
RECOGNITION SYSTEMS for completing level requirements and special achievements are also available through the national office. Your caravan may choose to use one or all of them or in some cases, none. The choice is really yours. The options are: a charm bracelet with corresponding level and achievement charms, a framed certificate with decals or a certificate of achievement, which you fill in when requirements have been completed.
