Why Gems

At GEMS Girls’ Clubs, we know it’s not easy being a girl today. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping all girls know they’re LOVED by Jesus and by a community of women dedicated to mentoring them. We believe when a girl understands she is LOVED and experiences that love week after week in the community of a GEMS Club, her life is forever changed. And she will then go change her community for Christ. When you start a GEMS Club in your church or Christian organization, you’re not just impacting girls. You’re impacting your entire community.

When you start a GEMS Club, you’re not alone. We’re here for you every step of the way. From easy-to-use curriculum, to relevant training, our goal is to serve you as you serve your girls.

Awareness Level

Girls in grades 1-3 have the amazing ability to understand the simplicity and depth of God’s love for them. To help you show them how deep Jesus’ love is for them, GEMS has developed a variety of resources. Each year, GEMS offers an Annual Theme that many clubs choose to use to bring all aspects of club night together. In addition to Annual Theme, Grades 1-3 materials include:

  • Activity Books include ten Scripture-based lessons as well as a fun manipulative. Counselor Helps guide women in teaching the lessons.
  • Kingdom Girl—The Stories of Jesus is designed to speak to girls with a diverse knowledge of the Bible. Counselor Helps available.
  • Sparkle Magazine includes a Bible lesson, stories, activities, crafts, and games. Counselor Helps are included in the Resource Book published with the Annual Theme Materials.
  • Awareness Place Badges include six lessons to introduce the concept of earning badges.
