Trail Life and American Heritage Girls troops are part of New Life’s family ministry. Our purpose is to offer safe, fun opportunities for children and families to discover Christ, develop spiritually, and deploy faithfully. We believe these troops allow young men and women to experience new challenges, make new friends, and serve others in a secure, faith-filled environment. With lots of opportunities for adult leadership, families can spend time together and share the fun while adults model the important principle of servant leadership for their children.
Participation in Trail Life and AHG isn’t just another extra-curricular activity to add to your family’s already busy schedule. It’s an investment in the future of our children and tomorrow’s leaders; instilling values and principles that will benefit our kids and our society forever. The programming and adventures, badges and awards provide a sense of accomplishment and personal achievement worthy of celebration, but it’s the honor expressed, confidence built, and camaraderie fostered through tackling new challenges that is at the heart of these troops.
Fun, risk, honor, safety… these are core values of New Life Christian Church and are shared with the Trail Life and AHG troops. All AHG and Trail Life leaders are required to complete a background check, and must complete and pass a youth protection course. Choosing activities for our children can be difficult in today’s culture but this safe, wholesome program will equip children to thrive and flourish throughout their lives.

Nearly 1.5 million U.S. soldiers have given their lives for American freedom over the last 237 years and despite the challenges of a global pandemic, New Life’s AHG and Trail Life troops plan to remember their sacrifices with a creative fundraising event. The troops are teaming up with race management company CompetitorME, to host a virtual 5k run, walk, hike, or ruck. Register today for the Honoring Heroes Challenge race, download a race app, create your own 3.1-mile course, and then compete individually between October 12 and Veteran’s Day (November 11). Register before November 4th. Early registration before September 30th is $20, $25 from October 1 to October 11, and $35 after October 12th. Fees include a commemorative bib and neck warmer that will be mailed to participants, plus sponsorship of a fresh balsam fir wreath to benefit Wreaths Across America (WAA), a national nonprofit that coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies for veterans each December at Arlington National Cemetery and other locations across the country. WAA also exists to remember U.S. fallen veterans, honor those who serve and teach children the value of freedom.
