CONNECT WITH GRIF
We need to be connected to each other in order to achieve our goal of a deeper connection with God.
We have Ministries and Groups for different needs and stages of life.
GRIF KIDS | Birth - 4th
At GRIF we believe children are important and we are committed to helping kids grow in faith and character. We want kids to know how God’s Word impacts their lives, to learn how to talk to him, and to build friendships that will last.

GRIF 56ers | 5th & 6th
A ministry focused on the transitional years for our 5th and 6th graders. This group meets on Wednesday nights.
GRIF partners with parents to help our GRIF56ers prepare spiritually, emotionally, and physically for adolescence. This stage of development requires parents to rethink how they connect with their children relationally to lead them spiritually. Our kids are growing up too fast. As Christian parents & the church we have the responsibility to equip our children with a strong sense of God’s truth to deal with many unavoidable issues in our culture. Isolationism, though appealing, isn’t the answer. Instead of protecting our children from the outside in, we want to strengthen them from the inside out.
The 56ers meet Wednesdays at 6:30 pm.
GRIF Ignite | 7th – 12th
The teenage years are full of changes and transitions. We want every student to have a place to feel both accepted and challenged, to experience friendship and community, to develop a personal relationship with Jesus, and to be empowered to use their gifts.
Sunday Night Small Groups | 5:30p – In smaller settings, students are encouraged to explore their relationship with Jesus and how that can influence every decision they make.
Wednesday Youth Group | 6:30p – This mid-week gathering serves as an avenue to reach our surrounding community of youth exploring the purpose of relationship in response to Calvary’s love.
Fall Retreat – Fun, food, friends and faith are the main events – it is an annual event that GRIF students love to attend!
Summer Camps – A week filled with swimming, games, friendship and worship. It is all good!
Mission Trips – We take missions seriously. Recent trips include serving others in urban and international settings.
Social Activities – From time to time, we find ways to just hang out and have fun.

If you want to deepen your relationship with Jesus having intentional relationships with people who have the same goal is a great way to grow. Participating in a Life Group is the ideal place for that. Typically life groups consist of ten to twelve adults who meet regularly to pursue spiritual growth and healthy relationships. You’ll be encouraged to live out the truths you discover in the Bible, as you encourage others to do the same.
To lead or join a life group, contact – Pastor Becca Graham
Looking for fellowship with others who have similar interests? Picking an interest group is a great way to connect. Whether it’s a financial class, Mom-to-Mom group, monthly young adult lunches, pickleball, golf, bicycling or lunch for retired adults, there are ways to get involved, be encouraged in your walk with Christ and enjoy the company of others.
