Hello! It’s your GEMS leaders, Cailyn & Keanna, here to give you some info about our coming GEMS year!
In case you are new to GEMS and looking for a little info before reading any further, let’s fill you in! GEMS, Girls Everywhere Meeting their Savior, is an all girls groups for grades 4-8. We meet every second Wednesday beginning in September running through until the end of April. We start at 6:45 pm and go until 8:30 pm. We spend the evenings playing games, doing crafts, learning new skills and completing badges. Each girl receives a badge book and then throughout the years completes different badges. We also spend time doing devotionals and growing closer to our Saviour, Jesus Christ. 
This year our theme is “In His Steps” with our theme verse coming from 1 John 2:6, “Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.” We think the GEMS supply catalogue says it best, “the theme will help your club understand how to live like Jesus. Girls will learn that when they choose to follow Him and live deeply aware of His presence, it will change them from the inside out. Their words, actions, attitudes and even where and how they step will be transformed! (GEMS supply catalogue pg 21)
 April 29 (GEMS Sunday at 10:00am service)
 at the First Christian Reformed Church.
We have lots of new leaders and new ideas to share with you, and we are excited to see you! The fee will be $25/GEM and parents can pay that along with filling out a registration form on the first meeting. We have a few new activities to try out this year and we are bringing back the kick-off sleepover!
We will have a little more information for you pertaining to the specific year ahead once we begin our GEMS season and we will keep you posted throughout the year using our GEMS email and Facebook page. Should you require any further information contact Cailyn or Keanna at the GEMS email. If you are interested in getting involved with GEMS, we would love to hear from you! Thanks and see you soon!
