Girls are active, imaginative and unique! They are passionate! As a Christian Reformed Church-affiliated ministry, GEMS offers  fourth-eighth grade girls the perfect place to learn and grow as they discover who God created them to be.
Bethel CRC partners with First CRC of Sioux Center to host GEMS meetings 7-9 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays, approximately September-April. Girls and/or their families do not have to attend Bethel to come join the fun. All are welcome! For questions, contact head counselor Glenda Bos ( 
NOTE: All parents, please use the WEST door of Bethel CRC to enter and plan to pick up your daughter at that same door at 9 p.m. each evening, unless otherwise noted by your daughter's counselors.
Check out the calendar for our full GEMS schedule.
WINTER WEATHER: If school is canceled the same day as GEMS/Cadets, then GEMS/Cadets that evening is also canceled. If school has a late start, GEMS/Cadets still plan on meeting. In case of bad weather after school but before GEMS/Cadets begins, we will play it by ear and try to make the decision early to avoid parents making any unnecessary trips to town.
