G.E.M.S--Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior
A club for girls in 3rd-8th grades, offering Bible study, singing, crafts, socials, camp, merit badges, and service projects.
Meetings are Wednesday evenings September - May from 7:00pm-8:30pm in the GEMS room upstairs.
Club Verse: Micah 6:8--"He has shown you, O Man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."
The purpose of GEMS is to help young girls learn that t hey are loved, wanted, treasured, and beautiful daughters of the King. The counselors and counselors-in-training help the girls understand this by working on badges, having service nights, and spending quality time with them.
2016 - 2017 year's theme: Love Overflows
Theme Song: One Thing Remains (Your Love Never Fails) sung by Kristian Stanfil
God loves you. It ‘s who He is. It’s what He does. He is love and the Source of all love. His love fills the earth from east to west, from the heights of Heaven to the oceans deep. It overflows!
This is the beat of His heart:
May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and everyone else, just as ours does for you.
-1 Thessalonians 3:12
And when we accept His love and absorb its width, length, height, and depth, it radically changes the way we love. Knowing and seeing God’s love is the key to loving Him, each other, and everyone else. From the overflow of His love, we love.
