'Real Beauty Real Girls’ Begins May 13 At Victory Christian

NORTH MANCHESTER — Victory Christian Fellowship Church is planning a series titled “Real Beauty Real Girls.”

RBRG is designed to help girls learn to recognize culture’s narrow beauty ideal and exchange it for one that celebrates their God-given uniqueness. Girls will learn about effective ways to deal with the wounds of negative words, how to challenge popular beauty myths, taking care of their bodies and breaking free from the trap of body hate.

The series is open to all girls ages 10 to 15. There is no charge to attend; all materials will be provided.

Sessions will be May 13 and 27, June 10 and 24, July 8 and 22, and Aug. 12 and 26. Sessions will begin at 10 a.m. at Victory Christian Fellowship, 112 W. Main St.
