A ministry event for young girls will be held Saturday, September 15 at 10 a.m. at First United Methodist Church, Hillsville.

R.A.M.P., which is a ministry centered on the foundations of Respect, Attitude, Modesty and Purity, is focused on the young women of Carroll County.

Each of the organizers are passionate about empowering young women to stand up for themselves and make good decisions. The event will include real-life stories, a fashion show, door prizes, lunch, snacks and much more for young women, ninth grade and up.

Organizer Misty Collins says, “I’m excited to have an open dialogue with the young women in our community. These girls need to know that people care. That their future is important to them and to us. That we’re here for them, not to judge them, but to be friends. We know what it’s like to be 17 or 18 and have the world in front of you. We’re here to help. Hopefully, by sharing our stories and experiences, we can impact these girls to avoid the circumstances we found ourselves in.

“The most important thing I want these girls to know is they matter to God and He loves them and that their worth comes from Him, not what others think about them. They are more than their bodies, their looks and their clothes.”
