GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior) is a relationship building program created especially for girls at Faith as well as other churches across the US, Canada, and around the world. At Faith this ministry serves girls in grades 2-8 and normally meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month from September-April, 6:30-8:15 pm. The goal of this ministry is for each girl to meet Jesus and to bring girls into a living and growing relationship with Jesus. Girls have the opportunity to make new friends in a safe environment, participate in dynamic worship, study God's word, be creative with arts and crafts, and participate in serve projects that help people locally and around the world. There are also special events throughout the year, including Camp Tecumseh for girls in 4th - 8th grades and a special activity for girls in 2nd - 3rd grades.
Each year, a theme is chosen based on a Bible verse or verses.
This year's theme is FRIENDED.
The theme verse is from John 15:15
"I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you."
Due to COVID, we will begin to meet one time monthly, and see how it goes. All attending Faith GEMS meetings are required to wear a mask and social distance. We will see how things are in December before we plan for the new year.

GEMS Girls' Clubs is a global ministry. They are currently active in 15 countries and seek to bring girls everywhere into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ.
Faith GEMS is committed to being a Global Partner in helping GEMS find additional ways to minister to girls around the world. From Kenya to Kansas, GEMS is committed to making sure all of our resources point every girl - no matter her location or background - to the truth of who she is and Whose she is.
The girls will learn about GEMS in other countries throughout the year and participate in activities that encourage them to have a global perspective as they act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God. The girls will also be encouraged to pray for these clubs.
