On Ramps

Figure out how to get involved

ON RAMPS are entry points into Garfield Memorial Church. Three are short-terms 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:


CONNECT - This on ramp is a basic introduction to what it means to be part of God's church and can lead to membership at the conclusion if you wish. (Six weeks)


BIBLE 101- Experience the Bible in a small group atmosphere and gain tools to study God's word. (Six weeks)


DISCOVERY: MINISTRY BY STRENGTHS - This Biblically-grounded short term small group uses the Clifton StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment to discover your “top 5” strengths. This group will help you learn how uniquely and wonderfully you –and others!- are made (Psalm 139)


TEAM - Join our “team” and volunteer! There are many ways to volunteer, from Children's Ministry to Hospitality to Outreach. TEAM Catalogs can help you discover the volunteer opportunity that is right for you.


PRAYER - House of Prayer will lead you deeper into the heart of God through prayer. House of Prayer meets at both campuses. Learn more on our Prayer page.
