GEMS: We are so excited to be starting Gems back up this year for 2nd-8th graders. Our kick-off night is scheduled for Monday, September 11 at the city park at 6:30 pm. We will be combining with the Cadets group for a fun night of pizza, games and getting to know one another. Following that, we will plan on meeting every other Monday night from 6:30-8. Our theme verse for the year is 1 John 3:1 "See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are." Our counselors for this year are Justine Stap, Jodi Anker, and Karla Buist. Eileen Timmermans will be helping with crafts. The curriculum we chose for this year is called Loved. Our hope and prayer is that every girl that comes will know the truth of who she is according to God’s Word! That she is accepted, cherished, beautiful and so very LOVED! Gems will be holding a Spud Feed with the Cadets on October 9. We will be raising money for our Gems and Cadets group. We look forward to a fun year!
