ON RAMPS are entry points into Garfield Memorial Church. Three are short-term small groups (Connect, Bible 101, and Discovery: Ministry by Strengths); the other two are experiences: Team (Volunteering) and Prayer (participating in the ministries of our House of Prayer). The ON RAMPS are a great way to get started here. you may also want to join a Small Group. See below for a description of each of the five ON RAMPS and a form to indicate interest:

You can join Garfield Memorial at the conclusion of the group if you wish. Offered twice per calendar year.
