Spirit of Life is happy to provide connections for our people to engage spiritually with other people in the community inside and outside of worship. Part of what makes a church great is that it’s more than a building…it’s a people.

131 Youth Crew

Connecting our youth around Grand Rapids

The 131 Youth Crew is a joint effort! Families from our congregations around the GR area gather together for food, games, and fun on Sunday Evenings. Each year our youth take special youth rally trips to places around the country like Estes Park, West Virginia, and Cincinnati.

Youth ages 7th-12th grade are welcome and, of course, friends from school can come along as well. To be a part of the youth crew sign up for our email list and come to an event with a friend. Can’t wait to see you!

Care Crew

This volunteer group is your opportunity. Spirit of Life has a thriving ministry with three local group homes. Our friends who live in these locations always appreciate smiles, conversation, and fun that we can share.

This is a once a month commitment. As much as we share with our friends, they fill us up with love, laughter, and grace too. To volunteer write or call into the congregation secretary.

Our Wednesday Evening small group is for you. We meet at the local EB Coffee and Pub every Wednesday at 7pm for conversation and study.

Altar Guild

Psalm 122 says  I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!”

Spirit of Life believes that God’s House should be a place of peace and beauty. We are excited to go to God’s house. Our Altar guild consists of men and women who beautify our worship space corresponding with different seasons.

If you have a decorative touch, like flowers, or want to learn about the different seasons in the church – this is the life group for you. Volunteers serve around 1 hour – one week at a time. Interested? Contact Judy Clifton at 616-243-6725
