GEMS Girls Club at Sunlight Community Church

GEMS is a relationship-building club program created especially for girls! Girls in first through eighth grades are eligible for membership. In club, girls will:

  • Participate in team building
  • Enjoy dynamic singing, creative movement, and dance
  • 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
  • Find answers to challenges that girls face today

We meet the second and fourth Monday of each month during the school year. We gather together for devotionals before breaking into groups for a theme based lesson. The girls may also work on earning badges. After the group lessons, we meet again for praise & worship and snacks.
