I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "grid map", since that could mean a lot of different things. On lds.org, you can go to Tools > Maps and see a map with your ward boundaries displayed, as well as markers for each household. There is no feature for any kind of grid lines, but you could draw those in on top of the map, according to your ward's particular needs.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Somewhat on topic. When I view our wards map there are no ward boundaries displayed. I do see all the household markers. Is there something I'm missing that would turn this on? My Bishop asked me to find out about this. Thanks

I am not sure but I think that the default for first time use is that boundaries are not selected for display in the map legend. You can turn on the boundaries by showing the map legend and checking "Selected Boundary" in the Boundaries section of the map legend. Show the map legend by clicking the second icon on the left of the map control menu found near the bottom of the map. The map control menu is mostly transparent until moused over; when moused over it will be fully visible.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?
