A Hello from the Pastor, Robert John Andrews

We are glad you found us.  People often tell me we have a beautiful church.  I like to reply by saying, “Yes, they are.”  Come and see for yourself.   Information about our worship services can be found below.


Sanctuary

What's Happening this Sunday:  Remember:  9:30 worship until Labor Day weekend.  This Sunday, July 3 we deal with the subject of Christ transforming anger.    

Scripture Lessons: I Samuel 16: 14-23 presents how David soothed an angry King by playing calming music.  Matthew 5: 21-26 is from the Sermon on the Mount and instructs how real disciples treat other persons.

A Word about Our Worship Services

Grove Church offers the opportunity for community worship every Sunday morning. 

From Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend (because of the summer heat, the summer activities, and the cessation of Church School during the summer), we have one service of worship held at 9:30 a.m.  

From Labor Day weekend through Memorial Day weekend, Grove offers one service of worship at 10:15 am. 

The 10:15 AM Service of Worship offers a traditional service, framed by the three movements of Reformed worship:

Preparation for the Word, Proclamation of the Word, and Response to the Word.

Expect at this hour-long service to be assisted by assigned greeters, ushers, and worship leaders.  The hymns at this service usually come from the traditional hymnbook and are led by the Senior Choir as accompanied by the Moller organ.  The traditional creeds and prayers are sometimes spoken and sung.  Communion, which occurs at this service only the first Sunday of every month, is served in the pew by the Elders.  Our Junior, Cherub, Youth, and Bell Choirs offer music at this service once a month or upon special occasions.

“Be sure that you feed and shepherd God’s flock – his church, purchased with his blood
– for the Holy Spirit is holding you responsible as overseers.”  - -  Acts 20:28
Stained Glass


Profession Child Care is provided at every service. 
(more for the relief of the parents -- we love the kids making noise in the sanctuary).  

Grove had a full Summer of events and fellowship
Such as Coffee House Fundraiser events, Adult Soccer, Church Softball games, Concerts in the Park, Vacation Bible School, Youth Mission Trip, Plant Sale Fundraiser, Breakfast Group Gatherings, Geisinger Resident Welcoming, Annual Church Picnic, Ice Cream Social, Arts Camp and more!  See Calendars and Spire tabs above for future events.  Join us Sept. 13th for a special Welcome Back Pot-Luck Luncheon following the 10:30 am Service when we welcome and celebrate our commitment to the upcoming church school year.

Here's a great video of the Arts Camp Fun of 2015.
