GEMS Girls' Club is a place to belong - a club just for girls - where girls are welcomed into a community of mentors and peers who genuinely care about them. At GEMS, girls in third through seventh grade are welcomed into a vibrant community of mentors and peers who genuinely care about them. GEMS is the perfect place for the girls to learn and discover who God created them to be. It's a fun and safe environment for them to learn about God, His Word, and His world.
GEMS is an acronym for Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior. Our vision is to see girls around the world actively and enthusiastically expressing love for God and others. GEMS' mission is to bring girls everywhere into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ.
Girls who participate in the club are organized into grade-based small groups with one leader for every six to eight girls. GEMS meets every other Wednesday from Oct-May from 7:00 - 8:45 pm.
Each year, a scripture passage is selected and a theme is developed around that scripture to make the passage come alive for the girls. Bible studies, service projects, crafts, games, and other fun activities are created to teach the truth of God's Word that is found in the theme. This year's verse is:
"Truly He is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken." Psalm 62:2
Almost everything has changed in our shaking world, hasn't it? It's impacted everything and everyone-especially our girls. They wonder who they are, where they belong, and what difference they can make in an uncertain world. They long for a sure and safe place to stand firm and unshakeable. Girls will not outgrow the troubles of this world, but they can overcome them when they place their trust in our UNSHAKEABLE God. He is faithful and His promises are unbreakable. We will be focusing on 5 important truths this year at GEMS. 1. I am loved. 2. I am not alone. 3. I am strong. 4. I am forgiven. 5. I am a world changer.
