GEMS is an acronym for Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior. Our vision is to see girls at Pella 2 CRC and around the world actively and enthusiastically expressing love for God and others – girls equipped, motivated, and passionately engaged in living out their faiths.

At Pella 2 GEMS club, girls in 2nd through 8th grade will:

  • Develop a lasting relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Foster a relationship with their counselors
  • Make new friends and share in a caring small group
  • Learn how to apply the Bible to their lives
  • Find answers to challenges they face every day
  • Learn what it means to be an activist for Christ
  • Participate in service projects that make a difference in other’s lives
  • Cultivate important life skills through badge activities
  • Enjoy dynamic singing and creative movement
  • Make meaningful crafts that encourage others


We meet on 3 out of 4 Wednesdays a month from September – March.
