Can your young daughter recite the history of the American flag, define the Impressionist period, identify five birds local to your region, list the books of the Bible and respond properly when a person is choking? If not, just ask a Sunbeam. And they could probably tell you a lot more. The Sunbeam program emphasizes the importance of growing spiritually, mentally, physically and socially through fun activities, field trips, camps, service projects, earning activity emblems and so much more! It gives girls a refuge, a place to be themselves, have fun, deepen their relationship with God, gain self–confidence and discover how they can make a difference in the world.

Today, Sunbeam members are between the ages of 1st through 5th grades, with the only criteria for joining is regular meeting attendance and parental consent. The goals of the Sunbeams are outlined in the Sunbeam Pledge, Declaration and Motto— but for this group actions speak louder than words. In Sunbeams, heavy emphasis is placed on actively working with the Sunbeam leader and fellow Sunbeams in order to earn emblems in many areas.

History

Inaugurated in 1921, the Sunbeams offer a character building ministry for younger girls interested in expanding their knowledge through emblem earning and Christian fellowship. More specifically, the program encourages “the building up of sterling character in girls and young women, promoting their physical, mental, moral and spiritual development, and training them for service to others.”
