Griffin First Assembly: an Encounter Life Church



A Place for Young Adults 18-30

Young adults at Griffin First Assembly: an Encounter Life Church have a place to call their own. Squad Goals is a special ministry to our young adults as we try to navigate and discover who we are as we go to college and work. Anyone age 18-30 is invited to join in the fun and festivities. We meet every other Monday at a designated location given through our Facebook announcements each time as well as word of mouth.

Women helping women


The women at Griffin First Assembly: an Encounter Life Church are blessed to be part of a church body that believes in women, cares for women, and empowers women for Jesus. As God’s daughters, we have an overwhelming desire to reach heavenward, to be more like Jesus, and to experience every bit of what He has for us. When we come together, we provide prayer, community, and support, while joining together in fruitful ministry. If you are a woman 18 years or older, please consider becoming a part of the beautiful sisterhood at Griffin!



Develop lasting friendships in a casual setting while exploring the Word of God. Studies run through the school year on Tuesdays at 9:30 AM in the Choir Room and Wednesdays at 7:00 PM in the Media Suite. Further details may be learned through the church office and church publications.



Encourage one another to live joyful lives of faith, hope, and love at special Saturday morning gathering. Be inspired by guest speakers who encourage our unique roles and abilities to serve God and the church with zeal. Bring a friend, your favorite mug, and a breakfast bread or fruit to share, and join in the fun!



Allow the Holy Spirit to enlighten and empower you at one of our many women’s conferences. Influential guest speakers and musical talent speak to our hearts and needs, refreshing us for effective love and service to our families, church, and communities.

Seniors serving one another in love

Griffin First Assembly: an Encounter Life Church loves our Seniors! Their wisdom, mentorship, and extensive life experience edifies and strengthens us as we seek to navigate this world’s varied terrain.

Regular activities include a covered dish supper on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in the Fellowship Hall, and Sunday School at 9:45 AM each Sunday in Room 808.
