GEMS

Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior – For meeting dates please check the New Hope Event Calendar.

What is GEMS?
GEMS is also a relationship-building, midweek club program created especially for girls. At club, girls have the opportunity to participate in:

  • Dynamic singing and creative movement
  • Fun games
  • Challenging crafts designed with a purpose
  • Meaningful Bible studies
  • Opportunities to get to know Jesus
  • Service projects that help others developing new life skills

Through these exciting activities, counselors build affirming and encouraging relationships with the girls in their small group of six to eight girls. Each club level is designed to meet the spiritual, social, physical, and emotional needs of girls in these developmental stages.  Girls will learn how to apply the lessons of the Bible to their own lives as well as discover answers to many of the challenges facing girls today.

When Does GEMS Meet?
The GEMS program meets every other week from 6:30 to 8:30pm. For meeting dates check out the New Hope Event Calendar or call the Church office at 509.325.4882. Our Head Counselor is Cami Haveman.
