At Church of the Intercessor, you will find people from all backgrounds and experiences, whose desire is to know God's love and forgiveness in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are an apostolic community that values the acceptance of people into the family of God. We believe that if one encounters the love of God then the purposes of God will be released in their lives. We are an active relational community. We acknowledge that everyone has both needs and a calling and is highly valued as a member of the Body of Christ. Therefore, we have various ministries in which you can find both a place to serve and also receive ministry.We know that God is working His transforming and healing power in us, even as we love and serve each other. Since those who have been forgiven much will love much, we welcome all who need and want help.

GEMS is a worldwide organization whose vision is to see girls around the world actively and enthusiastically expressing love for God and others— girls equipped, motivated, and passionately engaged in living out their faith.  The curriculum lessons provided are all biblical-based and encourage Christian service to church and community.

Here at the Intercessor, the GEMS aim is “to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”  Micah 6:8.  It is a relationship-based and relationship-building club program created especially to bring our young girls together for fellowship & fun!  The girls develop life skills by earning new badges, doing challenging crafts, going on exciting field trips, praying for one another and participating in a monthly Bible Challenge.  Some of our recent events that earned badges have included baking, biking, boxes of love deliveries, crafts, floral arrangements, ice skating, rock climbing, and pet training.

We have two groups divided by age:  The Awareness Girls consist of girls in 1st grade through 3rd; and the Discovery Girls are grades 4th through 6th.  We meet on most Wednesday afternoons from October to May, from 4:30- 6pm in Parish Hall with the first Wednesday each month starting with pizza dinner!  We generally follow the school calendar and do not have GEMS on school holidays.  There are dues collected at the start and half way point of the year which cover the cover the cost of the 5-7 events or field trips, pizza, the annual Mother-daughter tea and camping weekend.

All of our counselors are excited to build affirming and encouraging relationships with your daughters.
