OPTIONAL SUNDAY WORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
As you customize and close out your Conference weekend experience, you have one more choice to make. Select from one of these experiential worship opportunities prior to our closing worship session. You’re welcome to participate in a guided session or spend time on your own reflecting, praying, or packing for your trip home. These sessions will run from 7:30am – 8:30am, prior to the closing worship session which begins at 9:00am.
500 | Personal Time
On your own, in your room, or around campus. Use this time to catch up on your own personal devotions, reflect on your weekend experience, privately pray, rest, or pack your bags for the trip home. Offered during session 4.
501 | Game Changing Scripture Saturation
If you’ve been casually reading scripture but haven’t been seeing the full impact of God’s Word, this experience is for you! Come immerse yourself in a Scripture reading experience that will be a game changer in your walk of faith. Scripture immersion will allow God to reveal His insights and thoughts as you soak yourself in truth. Offered during session 4.
502 | Hideaway Worship
Begin your final morning of Conference with a time of intimate worship. In the beauty of the fresh morning we will spend time worshipping through traditional hymns. More than just being a sentimental journey, we’ll take time to meditate on these lyrics and allow their timeless melodies to bring us to a place of personal devotion and thanksgiving. Offered during session 4.
503 | His Word with Friends
Some of the ways God demonstrates His abundance and blessings are through His Word, His world, and His people. Experience that beautiful combination in this interactive Bible study. Together, let’s dig into His Word! Please bring your Bible and a pen. Offered during session 4.
504 | Walking with God
Throughout the Bible, people are described as walking with God. Even the GEMS aim points to God’s desire for us to walk closely with Him. During this self-guided Scripture walk you will be guided by Bible verses that call you to pray and meditate on God’s Word. This session will be outdoors. Offered during session 4.
505 | Prayers of Lament
Even in sadness and grief we can worship. Prayers of lament, of pouring out our difficulties before God, can be an act of deep faith. This type of prayer refuses to let go of God—even in the darkest of nights. It’s an honest admission that circumstances are hard but God is not absent. Bring your Bible and a pen. Offered during session 4.
506 | Praying through Art
Artistic expression offers the opportunity for growth, transformation, confession, and healing. Join us for this hands-on session as we worship our Creator through art. No experience necessary. Immerse yourself in personal prayer with God as you participate in these self-guided art experiences. Offered during session 4.
507 | Prayers for One Another
So many of us carry burdens that we don’t feel safe sharing with those in our own communities. In this group prayer session, we will pray about various topics and collectively lift group members before the Lord. The leader will offer group prayers on topics including marital turmoil, anxiety, prodigal children, suicide, depression, and more. Join us and allow the group to pray for you regardless of whether you verbally share personal concerns or participate quietly. Offered during session 4.
508 | Team Prayers & Planning
Have you attended with a group and need some time to plan and pray for your club? Use this hour to discuss weekend revelations, encouragement you’ve received, and new dreams for your club. Be intentional in praying for your club, the GEMS ministry, and girls everywhere. As you begin making plans for your year sit quietly in prayer for the girls and women that make this ministry so personal for you.
600 | Free Coaching Session
Do you have questions or concerns? Do you need someone to take an outside look at your club or leadership? Do you desire prayers for your club? GEMS Leadership is committed to listening, helping, and praying for you. Free one-on-one coaching is available throughout the weekend and will send you home with lots of encouragement, prayers, and a plan of action!
