a few additional things we'd like you to know...

we believe all belong in worship

You will find that children are particularly comfortable in worship at The Grove, and we celebrate their presence even when it means a little extra chatter.  We also honor the presence of those with disabilities.  You will likely notice our care and inclusiveness.


the comfort factor

We understand that visiting a church for the first time can be a bit tricky.  Every church has its own ways of doing things, and visitors kind of jump into the flow.  When you visit The Grove, we hope you'll feel welcomed but not overwhelmed.  We hope to answer any questions you might have, and we'll try to be explicit about some of our habits and happenings during worship.  


Sometimes guests like to know what the typical person wears to worship.  We want you to wear what makes you feel comfortable.  You will find some people in their "Sunday best," others in jeans and tennis shoes, and everything in between.


communion

We serve communion on the first Sunday of the month.  Since communion is about grace, it's open to everyone, including children, people from other faith traditions, and people who are still working out their faith.  We use exclusively gluten-free bread and grape juice. 


beyond sundays

Worship is important at The Grove; it's how we come together as a larger community to honor each other and connect with God.  But the church exists wherever we are in the world, so throughout the week, we have lots of opportunities for learning, serving, and connecting.  Explore our website to get a sample of what we're about beyond Sundays.
