Gary Youth

You have heard it said, “youth are the future.” At Gary Church, we say, “youth are the now!”

We believe our youth are called and empowered by God to make a difference in the world. We strive to support our youth, so that they are free to become disciples who share the love of Christ with their neighbors. 

At Gary Youth, you will:

  1. Have fun
  2. Be valued
  3. Explore the Christian faith
  4. Experience family
  5. Act through hands on compassion
  6. Keep growing
  7. Reach out

Fall Youth Activities     Thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make our Gary Youth Fall Retreat for middle and high schoolers so wonderful. We enjoyed our time in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Can't wait for "Winter Chill!" Follow our social media to see pictures.

Halloween Party (Middle School)
Wednesday, Oct. 27, 7–8:30 p.m., Activity Center
Let's party! There will be a Halloween costume contest, games and prizes. Costume Contest: The criteria include originality of costume, creativity, and attention to detail. Extra points if it is a Bible character!

Bigger & Better (High School)
Sunday, Oct. 24, 6–8 p.m., meet in Gary Church Parking Lot
Wearing our Halloween costumes, we are going to play Bigger & Better! Basically, we start out with a penny and go to a neighbor’s house and say, “Could you trade with us something bigger or better?” Then, we go to the next neighbor with our new item and ask them the same thing, again and again. At the end of the night, the winning team is the one with the most expensive item or items!
