National Day of Prayer

Calling TLUSA & AHG members to PRAYER May 7, 2015
To instill love of country and love of Christ exhibited through prayer
To fulfill the desire to serve God, Country, Family, and Others.
Prayer of 2 Chronicles 7:14 for our Nation
 And God said:“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves,
and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

We are partnering with this national effort and encouraging our Troops to reach out and volunteer your Troop to help. Trailmen can: 
  • pray leaders will be truly blessed, and God is glorified from your service
  • see how you can serve your charter organization
  • write notes of encouragement to local, state, and national officials
  • provide water/snacks/fruit to attendees
  • spread the word about the National Day of Prayer
  • spread the word that TLUSA & AHG are Christ-centered organizations
  • set up and clean up at prayer meetings
  • welcome attendees / thank participates for prayers 
  • lead the Pledge of Allegiance and/or lead a flag ceremony as color-guards
  • reach out to other Christian organizations to help them
  • take photos to share with your community 
So it’s not so much how you participate, it’s that you do! Your Troop can earn a Flag Ribbon for your Troop flag by doing just two things:
In the days leading up to the event, post your plans on you Facebook page or other forms of social media. In doing so, you’ll inspire other Troops to make their own plans. After your Troop helps on May 7th, post photos of your Trailmen in action.

“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge
the providence of Almighty God,
to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits,
and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
- George Washington
Whereas, the Senate of the United States,
devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority
and just Government of Almighty God,
in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution,
requested the President to designate and set apart
a day for National prayer and humiliation…
- Abraham Lincoln

Troops can earn this from serving the National Day of Prayer.
Please share with those you know in Trail Life,
what a great way to introduce your community
to our Christ-centered National Youth Program!

EQUIP Cove Valley - Two are better than One!

Attention registered AHG men!

Although not "officially" partners (yet), TLUSA and AHG share many of the same core values for helping to build and guide faith-based leaders for the next generation. They also make very compatible partners -- Just ask Patti (AHG) and Pat (TLUSA) Garibay!
Would you like to know more about TLUSA and fellowship with other male Christ-centered youth troop leaders? Then consider joining with equipped TLUSA leaders at our regional 2015 TLUSA EQUIP Cove Valley event, on April 24-26, 2015, at Camp Cove Christian Youth Camp in Mercersburg, PA.
This weekend adult-leaders training event, is primarily focusing on the male outdoor adventure skills and roles of leading TLUSA Navigators (middle school) and TLUSA Adventurer (high school) youth programs.  So if you are possibly looking to "unofficially" partner your AHG unit with a TLUSA unit in the future, join us to become better equipped.
If interested, register your intentions NOW because our troop size will be limited to 64 participants. 

For more information visit our EQUIP registration portal:

Two are better than one;
because they have a good reward for their labors.
