GEMSG.E.M.S. is an active adult ministry for those 55 and over.

The West Valley area of metropolitan Phoenix is very diverse when it comes to age. However, it is a destination point for many individuals from across the country that are looking to and towards retirement. To meet the very unique needs of this population, the Surprise Church of Christ created the GEMS Ministry, a ministry designed to serve and encourage active participation, promote dignified, enjoyable, productive, and rewarding Christian living for members 55 years and older. It's also an opportunity to tap into the vast resources of knowledge and experience of these members, as a way to mentor the younger generation both within the church and in the community.

If you are a Senior member of the church and have not filled out the GEMS Survey or would like to up-date an existing GEMS Survey: Login under For Members then click on the GEMS Survey under the For Members Menu. Complete the GEMS survey and submit it. This survey will help us tap into the resources that are in the congregation.
