What's Happening this Sunday: Remember: 9:30 worship until Labor Day weekend. August 29 brings to us the gifts of The Reverend Steven Englehardt.
Scripture Lessons: Texts for the worshp include: Jeremiah 2: 4-13 and Luke 13: 1, 7-14. Jeremiah points out the sin of Israel in claiming privilege as a excuse to be unfaithful. Luke 13 brings to us the confrontation with Jesus, the parable of the fig tree and then the infirm woman healed.

A Word about Our Worship Services
Grove Church offers the opportunity for community worship every Sunday morning.
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
