Seventh and eighth graders definitely don’t want to be classified as kids, but they’re often not ready to be full-blown teenagers yet, either. The Advanced Level of GEMS is uniquely designed to encourage growth and foster self-esteem as these girls transition from childhood into their teen years.
In small groups, girls have a safe place to share their feelings, concerns, frustrations, and questions.
True Beauty is designed to empower today’s generation of girls to live set—apart, remarkably beautiful lives—inside and out.
MTN is another choice for your seventh and eighth graders. This devotional seeks to guide Advanced Level girls up the mountain of the LORD—growing closer to God by understanding more about who He is. Girls will study 24 of God’s names—learning what it means that God is their heavenly Father, compassionate Healer, and devoted Friend.
Counselor Helps are available for each curriculum, offering counselors opening activities, service project ideas, discussion starters, answers to questions, and everything else needed to actively engage girls in each lesson.
