GEMS:  Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior (Girls 2nd-8th grade) meet twice a month on Wednesdays from 6:45-8:30 PM during the school year to participate in biblical lessons, crafts, singing, and service.

GEMS Girls' Clubs is a relationship-building club program created especially for girls!

The name GEMS Girls' Clubs is an acronym which stands for Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior. It clearly identifies the purpose for which the ministry was created.

GEMS Clubs are offered in local churches and other Christian organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada. 
Girls in second through eighth grades are invited to join. Membership is not limited to church members. In fact, Hope encourages and actively seeks the participation of non-church members as we invite girls from the community to join us. The program runs from September through May, meeting two Wednesdays per month from 6:45-8:30pm. In club, girls will:

  • Participate in team building
  • Enjoy dynamic singing
  • Develop important life skills through badge activities
  • Learn how to apply the Bible to their lives
  • Make creative and fun crafts
  • Participate in service projects that make a difference in other’s lives
  • Find answers to challenges that girls face today

The purpose of GEMS Girls' Clubs is to help bring girls into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ. To help foster this all-important relationship between each girl and Christ, other relationships are nurtured as well — between girls and between girls and their counselors (leaders).
