Fall Banquet

Our 13th Annual Benefit Banquet -- Sorry, this event is CANCELLED

Our Annual Benefit Banquet has been cancelled

After much prayer and consideration, due to the unusual and unpredictable circumstances in our present time, GEMS Directors and Advisors have made the disappointing decision to cancel the fall banquet. Please continue to pray about how you may be led to support GEMS financially during this trying time for all of us. We are still fully supporting our eleven Missionary Chaplains, despite the fact that we have now had to cancel two fundraisers this year. We would like to encourage you to prayerfully consider making a financial donation to GEMS. To make a donation online, please click this link to donate here.You may also send a check to GEMS, P.O. Box 180505, Tallahassee, FL  32318.

Thank you for your coveted prayers and financial support!

Our Auction date of November 14 will remain the same at this time.
