Calvinettes/GEMS Celebrate 50 Years


Calvinettes/ GEMS Celebrate 50th Year

This is the 50th year of the Calvinettes/ GEMS ministry to young girls in the United States, Canada, and around the world. The local Fulton GEMS Club invites you to join them at Bethel Church, 1208- 3rd Ave. on April 27 at 5:30 pm for a special praise celebration of present and past participants of Calvinettes and GEMS and their families and friends. Locally Calvinettes began in Fulton on September 14, 1971. The Calvinette name has been changed to GEMS, which stands for; Girls Everywhere Meeting The Savior. The background of the club remains the same.

The Fulton GEMS Club still meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at Bethel Church in Fulton and the girls still enjoy singing, badges, crafts, games, camping, overnights, Bible study, service projects, and much more.

If you were a part of the Fulton Club at any time, and would like to participate in this celebration using your talent of music, or as a reader please contact Carol Faber at 815-589-4208.
