FUMC - GEMs Ministry

The GEMs (God’s Exceptional Miracles) Ministry wants every child and family to feel loved, welcomed, supported, and included.  Our goal is to ensure that each child is given the opportunity to be successful and comfortable when attending worship, Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, activities, and events.  We provide one-on-one “buddies” when needed in order to accomplish this goal.  Just as Jesus welcomed all children, First Shreveport welcomes every child. 

The ministry also provides quarterly events for adults with special needs.  These events help bring a smile on the guests’ faces.  They come in with a smile and leave with an even bigger smile. 

GEMs Leaders:

Billie Beck, Emily Claycomb & Katelyn Rodgers
