We meet Alternate Sundays after the second service in the church basement.We also do at least one event a month.We have a short teaching time where we learn a little bit about what the Bible teaches us about life.After that we usually just hang out and talk. We hope that you will join us.

GEMS

GEMS Girls' Clubs is a relationship-building club program created especially for girls! GEMS Clubs are offered in local churches and other Christian organizations throughout the U.S. and Canada.  Girls in first through eighth grades are eligible for membership. In club, girls will:
Participate in team building
Develop important life skills through badge activities 

Enjoy dynamic singing, creative movement, and dance
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 counselor (leader).Girls in clubs are organized into small groups with one leader or counselor for each group of six to eight girls. These small groups coupled with the weekly interactions that take place in club nurture and develop faith and help girls create long-lasting friendships.
