On March 15, Girl Scout Ambassador Lainey Brown from O'Fallon represented GSSI United Methodist Bishops Gathering for Scouting Ministries at Christ Church in Fairview Heights. The annual event addresses how to strengthen the relationship with youth groups, as well as how young people can use the skills they learn through Scouting to explore and express their faith.
Lainey discussed earning her Girl Scout Gold Award, which she achieved by helping develop resources and programming for Alzheimer's patients at area nursing homes.
GSSI also provided information about Girl Scout Sunday, religious recognitions and the My Promise, My Faith pins. Learn more about Girl Scouts' faith-based awards: http://www.girlscouts.org/program/basics/faith/
