Garden Young Adults

Welcome to Garden Young Adults--a place where college students, working singles, and young couples passionately pursue Jesus in unity.  We celebrate differences in culture and background, and aim to build genuine relationships for the purpose of building God's Kingdom.

Coronavirus Pandemic Update:
Based on current promising trends with the ongoing pandemic, the Garden Young Adults ministry will begin meeting in-person for fellowship and serving events while continuing to follow all of the safety guidelines and recommendations.  Please join The Garden Church online community on Realm, so we can communicate with you and keep you updated with current information and events.

Next Fellowship Event (IN-PERSON):  Saturday, December 18th @ 5:45pm-9:00pm

Come and enjoy dinner and fun, festive fellowship with fellow GYA at our annual Christmas party.  Please RSVP by Sunday, December 12th, as we have preparations to make.

Garden Young Adult Pastor


In our small groups, we grow in spiritual maturity by worshiping together, engaging with His Word, sharing life, and praying for each other.  However you’ll soon find that the fun and abundant life spills over into the time between these meetings!
