If you are taking a "Test Drive" in a volunteer role or if you are currently regularly serving as a volunteer at Garfield Memorial Church, we want to celebrate and thank you!

We will have a Volunteer Celebration Dinner at our Pepper Pike Campus for all volunteers serving in the church at both campuses. The church will recognize and celebrate ALL Volunteers- those who are taking a "Test Drive" in a new ministry area and those who are currently regularly serving in an area of ministry. We would like your response ASAP please. Childcare provided through grade 5.

Sign Up for a Test Drive!

You're invited to try out a new volunteer role at the church. Read the details about all of the ministry teams below!
