We are excited to be starting another year of GEMS! As counsellors, we look forward to having the girls back
again, and all the anticipation of what lies ahead this year. The GEMS Club will be under the continued
leadership of Lindsey DeVries, Siena Dean, Kristin Groeneveld and Jessica Menkhorst. We are all praying for a
great season of learning, sharing gifts and talents, and having fun together as a group. This year’s theme is “Act.
Love. Walk.” based on the passage Micah 6:8. The goal is to encourage the girls to understand that not only do
they matter, but God loves them and created them with a unique purpose. Girls will hear the Gospel, understand
what Micah 6:8 is and why it matters so much, and be introduced to five world-changing women in the Bible.
The girls will celebrate that they can be world changers, not someday, but today.
