So What Is GEM?

Gals Encouragement Ministry. When trying to come up with a name that encapsulated the purpose of our ladies ministry, GEM seemed to be an appropriate goal for us to attain to. It is nearly on a daily basis, and sometimes multiple times throughout a day, that an opportunity to be a blessing to someone presents itself. Sometimes that person is a friend or a neighbor, sometimes an acquaintance on facebook, sometimes it’s someone in you own home.

As daughters of our Heavenly Father, we have been given a wonderful opportunity to be a funnel of God’s amazing love and compassion to those around us. Everyone in your world is in need of encouragement at any given moment; whether it is in the form of a sincere prayer for an overwhelming need they may have, a positive word for a discouraging day, or a praise for their efforts and a job well done. I myself have been the recipient of such encouragement, and what a blessing it always is to know that someone cares; that someone is willing to let God love me through them.

With the formulation of this ladies group, my prayer is that we will grow together with a common of goal of genuinely caring. It starts with being compassionate towards people and their problems, struggles, victories, and concerns. How can we even see that though if we are not also attentive to those around us? We must live our day with our eyes and ears open. As we become aware of an opportunity, the all-important step of being ready must be in place. That’s where these ladies meetings will come in handy, as we will be pooling our resources and ideas to be put to good use. Finally, comes the encouraging: sharing the uplifting words, praying the heart-felt prayer, sending the note of sympathy, care or congratulations, preparing a needed meal, being the hands and feet of the One who loves us all so deeply and is concerned about every detail of our lives.

I am looking forward to hearing the stories, watching the blessings, and seeing the results of what even just a little encouragement can do. I pray that in all this our Father can be gloried and His work be done.

Gals Encouragment Ministry

While we are busy “C.A.R.E.”ing for others we don’t want to neglect each other, so G.E.M. is for us! It’s a chance to get to know your fellow sister in Christ and for both of you to be an encouragement to each other.

If you choose to participate in GEM you will recieve a completed GEM form of a gal to encourage for 2 months, and then at the following ladies meeting you will be given a different gal. Of course, you will also be someone eises gal during that time.

The ways you chose to encourage your gal are up to you, but in order for this to be effective, some form of weekly contactwould be ideal. The point is not necessarily to buy a lot of gifts or spend tons of money, but rather to find ways to let your gal know that you are thinking of her and that you care about her cares.

Caring Projects
Throughout the year we will take on a different caring projects as needs arise. These projects may range from sending care packages to someone who needs some love and encouragement, to providing meals for a family that had a life event, to helping with needs within the church in preparation for big days and special events.
