Cadets & Gems

Cadets is made up of boys grades 4 through 8. The motto is “Living for Jesus”. Our Bible verse is John 14:15 ‘If you love me, you will keep my commandments.’ Every other Monday night we get together from 7:00-8:30 p.m. During this time, we work on various projects throughout the year, such as Pinewood Derby and Rockets.

New Era Christian Reformed Church - GEMS Girls GroupGEMS stands for, “Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior!” Girls can be world-changers. They can make a difference—right here, right now! GEMS Club is an opportunity to study the Bible, make new friends, and participate in awesome crafts and group activities, all while learning what it means to live a radically faithful life for Christ—acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with Him! Our church offers GEMS for girls in 3rd-8th grade. GEMS meets from 7:00-8:30 on Manna Monday nights along with the other groups that gather to fellowship at NECRC..

The theme verse for GEMS Girls Clubs is Micah 6:8 - "And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."  We try to apply this verse to every area of the girls' lives through discussion and interaction with one another.

The GEMS program has been in existence in the Christian Reformed Church for 50 years when it began as Calvinettes.  In 1995 it was renamed GEMS, and today there are thousands of GEMS groups in churches across the US and Canada and several in Zambia, Africa that are supported through the GEMS groups in our country.  God is good and faithful, and girls all over the world are building their relationship with Him and others through GEMS.
