GEMS (Girls)

GEMS Girls’ Clubs (“Girls Everywhere Meeting the Saviour”) is a program for girls from grade 2 through 8. The focus is on bringing girls into a living relationship with Jesus Christ. To help foster this all-important relationship between each girl and Christ, the girls are organized into small groups, with one leader or counselor for each group of six to eight girls.

In club, many fun and exciting things happen:

  • Develop important life skills through badge activities
  • Learn how to apply the Bible to your life
  • Make creative and fun crafts
  • Participate in service projects that make a difference in other’s lives
  • Find answers to challenges that face girls today

Women’s Retreat 2023

We are all characters and sojourners traveling through this life and seeking to find our way Home. The stories in the Bible give us hope, direction, and a challenge to trust in the everlasting God who is leading us.

Special Ministries


friendshipAt Friendship, we minister with people who have mental impairments, not to them. We believe that we serve each other, and by learning and spending time with each other, friendships are formed. We believe that everyone is created in God’s image and that redemption is a gift from God that is not dependent on a level of intelligence. We also believe that our church is complete only when it includes all of God’s own children and when all people are seen as equals-in God’s eyes and in our own eyes.

Time: Wednesday evenings 7:00 – 8:15 PM
Location: at the church
