Upcoming Events:


GEMS will have this year's 15th Annual Ladies High Tea on May 8th at the Joy Dome, Northwoods Church.
We are changing things up a bit for this year's Ladies High Tea; rather than selling 200 tickets, we seek 25 hostesses. Hostesses will be in charge of (one) table to decorate, invite and serve (your) guests.
If you would like to host a table for GEMS' upcoming 15th Annual Ladies Tea or would like more information regarding this nonprofit ministry, please message me.
To put us in the mood, because you can never have enough tea time and fellowship, we have a special reservation at "All Things Tea" for our Hostesses on Saturday, March 27th. At this gathering, we will go over all the information needed to be a hostess.
Here is the information to better understand what it means to host a table for this year's upcoming 15th Annual Ladies Tea.
1. Do you like to decorate? If so, you can decorate your table as you would like.
This may include china, flower arrangement, top layer table cloth. ( a full white table cloth will be provided)
2. Invite guests to sit with you (7)plus yourself =8 guests total.
3.Help spread the word about the tea and possibly seek sponsorship by information given to you and or a silent auction item for the tea.
4. You or one of your guests you appoint to serve the table.
( this would include food and hot water for tea, ready, just needs to be picked up from the back of the room and taken to your table.
5. Attend one meeting, March 27th at "All Things Tea" in Tallahassee to go over all information as I have written here, just in better detail:)
That's it!
Three gifts will be awarded to The hostess with:
The most creatively decorated table
The highest dollar amount raised for GEMS.
The table dressed to impress, she is clothed in Strength and Dignity.
Help us get the word out! If you would like an invite/ tickets, please let me know, and I can team you up with a hostess.
Thank you for your support!

Past Events:

 November Auction
(always the second Saturday in November)

 Our 25th Annual Benefit Auction will be November 14, 2020.




  During the planning of the auction we tried to think of everything that could be done in order to hold the auction in a safe environment in these uncertain times caused by Covid-19.  One major addition or change to our auction was renting a tent, allowing for some social distancing.

 We are so thankful for all who participated: donors, purchasers, volunteers, promoters, auctioneers, and prayer warriors.

 It was great to see the generosity of so many attendees who participated in the “paddle auction” raising over $4400 for purchasing and distributing Bibles. 

 Prior to the auction, the ten days weather forecast called for a rainy weekend.  The weather turned out to be very pleasant allowing us to leave the gym doors open for better ventilation and to better utilize the tent for a comfortable dining area.

 The Lord truly blessed GEMS with the greatest auction ever.

 Fall Banquet

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