I’m a fifth-generation GFS member. I grew up in a church heavily involved in GFS, and I spend my summers at a retreat home in New Jersey that allows me to serve and connect with other members of the episcopal church. GFS has become a second family to me. Women and girls that I’ve known my entire life inspire me every day to become a better person and grow in my love for Christ. GFS allows me to have a place to serve and worship in, not only my church but also in my community.
