Spirit Life

Grove encourages spiritual growth through study and activity.

The Story

Sunday Worship—10:30 a.m.

   The themes of our worship will follow the chapters of The Story (a schedule is in each book in case you need to miss a Sunday!) There is no dress code in our church—God, and we, will be delighted to see you!


Sunday School for children and youth 9:15 a.m.

We will have classes for the nursery, children ages 4-7, and ages 8—12. Teenagers will meet at a time to be determined when we know their schedules!


Café Conversations—

Tuesdays 10:30 a.m. in Mitchell Hall. Join us for coffee or tea, and a light snack as we discuss the questions with each chapter. Pastor Merritt will lead this group.


Tuesdays, 7:00 p.m. upstairs in the Monroe Building. Led by the Rev. Dr. George Toole, we will also discuss the questions with each chapter. You can attend either group, or visit both as your schedule fits.

Whether you are new to the Christian faith, or know something about it but haven't really looked at the Bible much, or you have read the Bible for years, this discussion time will help you grow and stretch. Those who have not read the Bible will find a strong foundation for exploring faith. Those who know the Bible well will receive a new perspective - a bird's-eye view (or rather, a God's eye view!) which helps connect the many stories and themes. The old, old, Story is brought to life in new ways, while preserving the timeless truth of God's love for creation and God's desire for all humanity to live in justice, righteousness and hope.
