Welcome to Garfield Memorial Church. We're so glad you stopped by to check out our church community. We hope you'll take time to explore this website and our online offerings, send us a note, check out a sermon, or join us for worship.
We are a multi-ethnic, economically diverse church with no more than 52% of worshipers comprising one ethnic group. Our diversity extends into every category you can think of, from age to politics to learning styles. We believe that the gospel is for everybody, and we seek to live into the vision of God’s kingdom in the New Testament book of Revelation 7:9, which describes heaven as having “a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages.”
From Outreach Magazine about how Garfield Memorial transitioned to "Living Color.”
From the United Methodist Communications, "Celebrating Diversity."
From Net Results, Pastor Chip wrote an article about our journey, "Rebuilding a Mainline Church."

What to Expect When you Visit
No matter which campus or worship service you attend, you can expect to find a welcoming group of people who are glad that you have come to worship with us. Our core values are safety, growth, authenticity, diversity and forgiveness and we try to live those out every day.
Garfield Memorial is a “come as you are” church. While some people dress more formally for the Heritage worship service in Pepper Pike (9:30, Sanctuary), the tone is informal in all our services. Everyone is welcome and we have many guests and attenders who are just exploring Christianity.
Children and youth are highly valued and we want to be a church for children, youth and adults who learn in many different ways. Our inclusion coordinators at both campuses are available as needed.
At our Heritage service, we use a printed bulletin to guide worship; at our Mosaic services everything is on our screens, but we provide a weekly Pulse newsletter that has contact information for our team as well as information about ongoing ministries & special events.
If you've already attended worship, please fill out the new guest worship survey! When you're finished you'll get a special surprise.
