"Feed my lambs. Tend my sheep. feed my sheep." john 21:15-17

::: Outreach is a natural overflow :::

Jesus has poured out His love for us, and He continues to pour out His love to us each day.  Jesus rescued us from a life separated from God's love, and He wants to rescue everyone else.

We want to go with Jesus, following His lead, into our community, and help people find a relationship with God that rescues them too.  We do this by extending genuine kindness, mercy, love, wisdom, and truth that Jesus has formed in our hearts.

We do this because God's love moves us.  It's the natural overflow of His love poured into our hearts.

Granada Connections Ministry

The Granada Connections Team has tackled a big job! With 2 parts to the ministry they serve to connect people within Granada's groups and events and then to connect Granada to the local community. Here's a few methods and ministries that are supporting: 
  • First Impressions: Greeting guests and overseeing the 1st impression they receive both relationally and visually.
  • Connecting multiple groups within GHFC who are serving and looking for similar efforts. Unifying GHFC within a singular focus.
  • Caring for staff, volunteers and members
  • Meeting those in need where they are. 
  • Gospel Center Churches of La Mirada: a coalition of gospel-centered churches within La Mirada, Ca. 
  • Host, Assist and/or promote various outreach opportunities within the local community and our Friends Church Community.

::: local outreach :::

We support a handful of ongoing ministries that are always in need of volunteers or donations. 

  • Donate to Our Food Pantry

    Granada's Food pantry is available to those in need of a meal and can be found in the GHFC office Monday-Thursday.  One of our pastors will greet them, pray with them, provide a meal, and offer any additional resources that may be helpful.

    We are always in need of more non-perishable food items. They can be delivered to the main office at any time during office hours. 

  • Operation Christmas Child

    Hear Franklin Graham expand on the urgent need for the Gospel


    I want every child to know there is a God who loves them.  

    -Franklin Graham, President

    Every shoebox gift is an excellent resource for evangelism and discipleship which leads to the multiplication of new believers and churches around the world.

    Fill a shoebox - Granada has packed around 640 boxes since we have started participating in this ministry. Boxes are available on Sundays or in the Church office during the week. 


    Build a shoebox all online to be sent:


    Watch the impact you can have in a Childs life when packing a shoebox!


::: Other Outreach Opportunities :::

Jesus leads us to be One Body of Christ; to be unified as we stand and walk beside other believers. We do this because there is so much more than just 1 church can do. While GHFC is always active in finding ways to serve our community, here are a few other organizations that reach additional  people surrounding the greater Granada community. For more information about any of these ministries or ways you can get involved please contact us at info@ghfc.org.

  • Bringing our community, schools, city government, businesses, non-profits, and houses of worship together for the good of our city.   www.lovelamirada.org

  • We offer two support programs for our women. We have a parenting support group for our women who choose to carry-to-term, called Stepping Stones Support Group. We also have a program offering after abortion support.

  • Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) is a Bible-centered organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in the local church for Christian living.

  • Sunday evening meal and worship service has been growing as God’s Word is being proclaimed to those in need of hope. The “Basement Church” meets on Sunday evenings. Many are homeless. Many are fighting various forms of addiction or mental illness. Others are just trying to survive in a despair-ridden inner city neighborhood. The Basement Church meets in the basement of Long Beach Friends Church. Several churches take turns providing a meal prior to the worship service on Sunday evenings. Often, the church providing dinner will also bring a worship team or prayer counselors.  A small group from Granada ministers in Long Beach the first Sunday evening every other month.  

  • Fellowship of Christian Athletes

    Unite your two passions, faith and athletics, to impact the world for Jesus Christ.
    We've been on one mission for over 60 years.
