Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior is designed to help bring girls into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ. Our vision is to see girls around the world actively and enthusiastically expressing love for God and others. Every year we have a theme that we study throughout the season. Each week we have a Bible study on the theme and then we have either craft time or game time, and we close with a time of singing.

Senior High Youth Group

Who: All 9th -12th graders 

Leaders: Eric and Alex Zudweg

Where: The Anchor

When:  September-May (every other Sunday), miscellaneous events in the summer and throughout the year.  For a complete and detailed schedule please contact Eric Zudweg here or join our Facebook group, 'East Martin CRC High School Youth Group.'

We meet every other week and enjoy food, play games and have a devotional.  We love to do regular activities such as bowling, sledding, pool parties, bonfires, the annual Road Rally, Cedar Point, Michigan's Adventure, Craig's Cruisers, movies etc.  We have fund raisers throughout the year to help pay for our Spring Break Serve Trip and other activities.  Our fundraisers consist of the Thanksgiving Breakfast, Christmas Card Delivery Service, Pop Can Drives and various others throughout the year.

Our goal is to give high school students a fun and safe place to learn more about God, play games and enjoy time with friends, and to be better prepared to go out in the world as positive role models.  We seek and prioritize putting the needs of others above our own and our theme verse is Philippians 2:3, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.  Rather, in humility value others above yourselves."
