GEMS is for 2nd through 5th grade girls. We meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7:00 to 8:15 from October through April. Our focus is to help girls and their families have a saving and dynamic relationship with their Savior, Jesus Christ. We learn about the Lord and we have a great time doing it!
GEMS meetings typically consist of a Bible lesson, badge work and/or a craft. We will usually have some fellowship time also. All girls are invited regardless of church affiliation.
