Serving - Ministry Teams
A - F
At Garden Park, we strive to be good stewards of what God has give to us and want to live out the biblical mandate to care for our neighbors (I Timothy 6:18). The Benevolence Team has been formed to care for those in our community who are experiencing trouble securing the necessities or life - things such as food, shelter and utilities.
Is the local library your favorite place? Do you enjoy reading and discussing books with others? You are welcome at Book Club. We meet once a month during the school year. Selections range from varying types of fiction to challenging Christian literature. The Book Club is open to all who would like to participate.

Financial Peace University
FPU is an extension of the ministry of Dave Ramsey, renowned Christian financial counselor. We routinely present the 12-week training session. FPU teaches principles for sound financial management and empowers participants to work toward becoming debt-free.
Our Food Pantry is stocked with donated food and toiletries, given by the people of Garden Park who want to share their blessings with those in need. If you are in need of food or toiletry items, you may call our church office to make an appointment with the Food Pantry director.
