My Next Step at GFCC

  • Get Baptized & Take our membership Class

    If you are interested in getting baptized by immersion, consider our Next Step class. This is a quarterly class taught by Pastor Shawn and Albert Garcia, one of our elders.  This class is typically taught on a Wednesday night or a Saturday morning and lasts about 2 1/2 hours.  We go over what we believe as a congregation and the direction in which we are heading.  The Next Step class is NOT a pre-requisite for baptism.  The class is a pre-requisite for church membership.  For more information, email the church office at  

  • Join a Bible Study or group

    We have numerous Bible studies throughout the week that are open to groups of all ages, sizes, and background. Scroll down for an updated list of what we have going on.
  • Volunteer or attend an event

    Take a look at our our different ministry teams here, or take a look at our calendar of events to see what is happening next!

  • Give back to GFCC

    Help support the mission & vision of Griffith First Christian Church by coming on board to support us! You can give on a Sunday morning or via our online donation page. Either way, you are giving back to the Kingdom and you are helping us reach the lost.
