Ways to Support the Immanuel CRC GEMS

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for the start of our GEMS ministry year. Please pray for our leaders, volunteers, and girls this year.

  • We have a number of new GEMS girls this year. Pray that GEMS will be a blessing to their lives and their families.

GEMS Jar Fundraiser

The money we raise helps with some of the expenses of GEMS. Our quart sized jars contain all the dry ingredients for a soup, cookie, or bread recipe.  Each jar has a label on top with instructions and additional ingredients needed to complete the recipe. This year’s recipes are Double Chocolate Toffee Cookies, Christmas Cookies, Monster Cookies, Tortilla Soup, Country Soup, and Honey Cornbread. Each jar is $8. Checks can be made to Immanuel CRC GEMS.

You can order jars in several ways:

  • Directly from our GEMS girls.  Our top 3 sellers get prizes

  • Order online at

  • Use the order forms in the back of church

GEMS Fleece Blanket Fundraiser

At our December 4 meeting, the GEMS are going to be making fleece blankets for children in the San Joaquin County foster care system. The cost of supplies for each blanket will be around $20 to $25. We are asking for donations to cover the cost of these blankets. All money donated will be used for these blankets and ALL blankets will be sent to the SJ Foster care program. Any amount donated will help us with this project.
