Outreach: Widening the Circle

From tailgate parties to movies to parades, there are lots of ways to widen the circle through Outreach. Contact Outreach Coordinator Nikki Froehlich (nikki@garfieldchurch.org) to learn how you can serve.

  • Movies on the Lawn at South Euclid: Look for Movies on the Lawn at South Euclid the 3rd Saturday of every month from May – September, weather permitting. To learn more or learn about volunteering for this or other outreach events, contact nikki@garfieldchurch.org.
  • Kidz Club Shark Tank - Sharks Needed: Kidz Club at our South Euclid Campus is launching kids into the summer with Kidz Club Shark Tank! Kids are invited to pitch a summer, small business idea to our team of sharks, to try to convince a shark to provide the start-up costs. You are invited to be a shark and invest in a child's summer business - up to $5 million! (Just kidding - we're capping it at $150.00.) Kidz Club Shark Tank will take place the evenings of May 25 and June 1. Contact scott@garfieldchurch.org for more information.

    Farmers’ Market - Widening the Circle

    The South Euclid Garfield Memorial Farmers’ Market (1534 S. Green Rd., 44121) will be returning on Thursday afternoons this summer starting Thursday, June 2nd from 1-6 PM. We are looking for people who can volunteer at the hospitality table. Shifts can be as little as half an hour. We greatly appreciate any time offered. If you are not able to help out at the hospitality table, consider stopping by to pick up some of the season’s offerings. This market is a wonderful way that we can help support and build relationships with our community, and your support helps to make it a success. If you are able to volunteer, please contact Kathy Carvin at (216) 375-5902.

    Food Pantry Assistance - Help Us Restock for the Summer

    We have food pantries at both locations. There are 3 ways you can help: 1. DONATE grocery gifts cards (Aldi’s, Giant Eagle) in denominations of $25 & bring to either church office or place in the offering; 2. DONATE nonperishable items, especially tuna, canned chicken, canned fruit, and spaghetti sauce; 3. Make a monetary donation (cash, check, or digitally) and note that it is for the food pantry. If you are in need of assistance, please contact either church office: Pepper Pike, 216.831.1566 or South Euclid, 216.381.2953. Volunteers are needed to assist with distribution of food.

We are currently engaging over 40 kids each week. We need you to help us connect with elementary, junior high and high school youth in this ministry.

    If you are interested in being a mentor, tutor, or both for the Greenview Student Mentoring and Tutoring Program, contact Pastor Scott Blevins (scott@garfieldchurch.org) ASAP so we can start the process of having you approved as a volunteer through the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Schools.

    The Back to School Blast needs your help!

    We're raising $10,000 so we can give kids in the Cleveland community and beyond new backpacks. If we sponsor 500 backpacks (filled with school supplies!) at $20 per backpack, we'll also be able to give new backpacks to kids in Liberia (Camphor Mission) and kids at Pine Ridge Native American Reservation (South Dakota). Stop by the Blast table in the lobby on Sunday or visit garfieldschoolblast.com to sponsor a backpack, check out where we stand in our backpack countdown, and learn how to volunteer, partner, donate, or register (the Blast is for kids grades K - 12 enrolled in Medicaid or without health insurance). Want to support the Blast Book Fair? You can drop off new and gently used books for kids grades K - 12, plus books and magazines for parents and caregivers, in the book bins at our Pepper Pike and South Euclid campuses. Thank you for your support of this special event!
