  • women's MINISTRY

    What is Women's Ministry? It’s different things to different women. It is a time when the women of GFCC get together to fellowship with one another. We get together for Bunco, dinner at different restaurants, Christmas programs, Tea, and Ladies day. We collect gift cards for the Griffith police to give to those in need. We support a mission called Rapha house, an organization who tries to help young ladies who have been caught in the human trafficking. 

    The Women's Ministry has not met since March of 2020 but are hoping to be able to meet again this fall. If you would like more information you can contact Denise Kelley at


    Our Men's Ministry has taken a current break throughout the summer, but will hopefully be back in action this Fall! It is a group dedicated to the involvement and growth of men to learn what we believe, why we believe it, and what to do with that belief in our lives. 


    The Elder-berries ministry is for anyone 55 years and older or retired. We enjoy getting together monthly for luncheons at various restaurants and have occasional holiday parties throughout the year. We haven’t met since March 2020 because of Covid but are hoping they can get together in the next couple of months.

    Melissa Rothchild is in charge of this ministry. If you have any questions, you can contact her at


    The Hospitality Committee is a hands-on welcoming group that promotes event planning and serves as the overall greeter and celebration of Griffith First Christian Church.

    The Local Outreach ministry of GFCC is dedicated to sharing the Good News about Jesus Christ with the communities of Northwest Indiana. We are committed to Helping People Follow Jesus by introducing them to Him in a variety of ways. We participate in town festivals and the weekly Griffith Central Market throughout the summer. We partner with the other ministries of GFCC to put on different community oriented events throughout the year such as our Falltastic Bash, our Easter Egg-Stravaganza, and occasional movie nights. We also put on appreciation dinners for our first responders during the year. If you are interested in getting involved with our Local Outreach ministry, please contact us at
