Youth Ministry (Grades 6 - 12)

Garfield Memorial Student Ministry is a witness to youth in grades 6 - 12. Our youth are a diverse and multicultural gathering from across two dozen school districts! In our various differences, we meet God's same message to each of us: we are all greatly valued and loved.

Sunday Mornings

During worship on Sunday mornings, youth grades 6 - 12 have the opportunity to serve as volunteers in KidzSpace Children’s ministry, which enriches the experience of the youngest church goers by giving them supervised interactions with youth who are also growing in their walk with God, and provides youth in our church an opportunity to learn the importance of serving all year round. In Pepper Pike, please arrive at 10AM to room 5 in children's ministry hall for donuts & preparation.

Following training, youth will be able to serve each week in areas from Nursery-Toddler through Grade 5, as an assistant to a trained adult volunteer in KidzSpace during any of the worship services in our Pepper Pike location, or during 11:15 worship at our South Euclid location. Additional hands-on training will provided each week from an adult mentor. Contact Youth Pastors Perry Freed ( & Alex DeVaughn (
