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 – 1:00pm. Things to look for in the month of October two offsite mountain bike trips!!


Learning Zone

We offer elementary children who don’t have WiFi at home, a safe place to do their homework. Supervised use of laptops and printers are available for kids to complete their school assignments. During the school year, the Learning Zone is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00pm – 6:30pm. In July we offer Kidz Club for rising 1st-3rd graders.


iCARE Mentors

We provide encouragement and hope to people facing challenging times. We listen to each neighbor’s story, consider the situation objectively and offer prayer, wise perceptive, next step options and connection to local resources. iCARE mentors are available Mondays and Wednesdays from 10am – noon and 2:30pm – 5:30pm and Saturdays 10am – noon.
