Our Programs


Gear Up Bike Shop

We invite kids to learn and earn bikes through completing tasks and community service. The bike shop is a place where kids develop healthy relationships with positive role models while learning basic mechanical skills and the value of hard work. We teach them how to keep their bikes functioning and safe, while also pointing them to the importance of a Christ-centered life. The Gear Up Bike Shop is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 5:00pm – 7:00pm and Saturdays 10:00am – 12:00pm.
