A Hello from the Pastor
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.
What's Happening this Sunday? We've come to Memorial Day weekend, which means we switch over to the combined 9:30 worship service. Special educational events replace the regular Church school. During this service, as our homage to Memorial Day, we toll the bell in memory of those church members who died since last Memorial Day.
Bible View: Today's text is John 16: 12-15, continues the Farewell Address Discourse of Christ and the emphasis on the Paraclete, the Advocate, who will come to guide us in the way of truth. Truth is funny becasue as it will set us free, so the saying goes, it always will really hurt. Never waste a pain.
A Word about Our Worship Services
We worship every Sunday morning.
From Labor Day weekend through Memorial Day weekend Grove offers two services of worship: the 8:30 Early Service and the 11 AM Service of Worship
From Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, we combine these services into the one 9:30 AM service of worship.
The Early Service is a simpler service, more intimate, shorter, and less formal than the 11 AM service. Communion by intinction (coming forward to the table to dip bread in the cup of juice) happens every Sunday at the 8:30 service.
The 11 AM service features the choir, church organ, and traditional hymns. The service follows the three-fold pattern common among Reformed Churches: Preparation for the Word, Proclamation of the Word, Response to the Word. Communion, which is served by the elders to worshipers in the pews, happens every first Sunday.
Nursery is available during summer hours and the 11 AM service (more for the relief of the parents -- we love the kids making noise in the sanctuary).
