Baldwin Street CRC offers a GEMS Girls Club that meets the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 7:00-8:30 PM, October through March, following a Family Night dinner. Click here for the schedule, or contact Kerri De Windt at 669-7852 for more information.

GEMS Girls' Clubs is a relationship building, club program created especially for girls! GEMS Clubs are offered in local churches and other Christian organizations all across the US and Canada.

Girls in second through seventh grades are welcome to participate. In club, many fun and exciting things happen:
  • Participate in team building
  • Enjoy dynamic singing, creative movement, signing, and dance
  • 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 girls face today

The purpose of GEMS Girls' Clubs is to help bring girls into a living relationship with Jesus Christ. To help foster this all-important relationship between each girl and Christ, other relationships are nurtured as well — between girls and between girls and their counselor (leader).

Girls in clubs are organized into small groups with one leader or counselor for each group of six to eight girls. And it is through these small groups, and the interactions that take place in club that faith is nurtured and developed, and long lasting friendships are made.


The ministry of GEMS Girls' Clubs has been serving churches for over forty-nine years. During these years, thousands of girls' lives have been changed forever. Today, there are more than 23,000 girls who are members of GEMS Girls' Clubs, with 5,200 women enthusiastically serving as their counselors and mentors.

The ministry is non-denominational with club participation in several different denominations and non-denominational churches and other Christian organizations throughout the United States and Canada.

GEMS has been recognized as the official youth serving agency for the Christian Reformed Church. Curriculum is developed from a reformed perspective.

The name GEMS Girls' Clubs is an acronym which stands for Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior. It clearly identifies the purpose for which the ministry was created.
