MPMF and Religious Recognitions MPMF points to the Religious Recognitions, it does not replace them. Why is this important? Religious recognitions are created by the national religious bodies.
MPMF Impact Girls – Girls will see how the Girl Scout Law is connected to their faith. Leaders - MPMF helps ADULTS to make the connection between Girl Scouting and faith. Councils - MPMF can strengthen the partnership between the local Girl Scout council and the faith community. Congregations – They have an important role in Girl Scouting
