Students are vital participants in the life and ministry of Gary Church. Whether it is through Sunday morning education opportunities, Wednesday evening fellowship for Middle School students, Sunday Nights for High School Students, special events, or mission and outreach projects, Gary Youth strives to be a place where students can be real, challenge one another, and grow in faith.
