GEMS Leaders Prepare for “ACTS” Fall Workshop

GEMS Awards 2013 46THESE ladies are awesome! Our GEMS club is blessed to have outstanding leadership, some of whom are also Regional Coordinators who have been getting ready this week for the ACTS Fall Workshop scheduled to be held at Sunlight this weekend.

The Area Coordinator Training and Support workshop kicks off with The Higher Grounds Café at 7:30 PM tonight with coffee, tasty treats, prizes, and the sweetness of building relationships with fellow counselors and sharing ideas.

Karyn Dekker, GEMS Regional Leadership Trainer, (who also wears the hat of VBS Worship Leader) will be sharing powerful and playful ways to thread this season’s theme into every nook and cranny of club life.

The workshop continues on Saturday with worship, and dives into this year’s “Who’s the Greatest?” theme based on John 3:30.
