G.enuine E.nthusiastic M.ature S.aints


The GEMS is the Calvary Baptist Church ministry group for senior members.
To qualify for this august" group, one must be 50 years of age or older, or have grandchildren.

There are strong biblical and historical precedents for our being a group of older saints serving the Lord in our later years. Moses, Caleb, and Daniel are good biblical examples and even Polycarp, one of the early church fathers as he declared on the day of his martyrdom "Fourscore and six years have I served him. . ."

We desire to be serving the Lord as well until HE comes or calls.

There are many opportunities to have fellowship through activities, occasional trips to points of interest, and of course, meals together. Participating in the GEMS is a great way to serve the Lord and have fellowship with other church members in your "senior" years.
