PLAN YOUR FIRST VISIT
Thanks for taking the time to visit our site. We hope you’ll visit us in person soon.
Our goal is to make Grove a safe place for you to continue taking steps in your faith journey.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
We gather together as a family every Sunday so we can be equipped to scatter together across our community during the week. Our church campus is located at 8701 Ridge Road (the southeast corner of Parham and Ridge Roads). Our Sunday focus is on Bible teaching and fellowship in age-appropriate group settings at 9:15 AM and corporate worship at 11:00 AM. There are also community groups that meet off-campus throughout the week, who are on mission together to make disciples of Jesus in the places where we live, work and play.
WHAT DO I DO WHEN I ARRIVE?
We encourage you to come early to allow one of our greeters help you find where you are going, give yourself time to get a cup of coffee and check in your kids. You will find our greeters at our welcome tent just outside either our main entrance or south entrance (weather permitting, or if not, just inside the entrance). We hope you will permit our greeter to get contact information from you. This allows someone from our church family to follow up with you and help you take your next step. Our greeter also has some information we would like to give you – including a coupon for you and your family to have dinner on us at one of our Wednesday night fellowship meals.
WHERE DO I CHECK-IN MY CHILDREN?
We strive to provide a safe, nurturing atmosphere for all children, ages infant through grade 5. Parents with kindergarten through grade 5 children are encouraged to enter the church through our south entrance where you will immediately find our children’s check-in. Parents with infants through preschool will find preschool check-in off our main foyer, and will find either entrance to be convenient. Please go to “preschool”, “children’s” or “student” ministries for more information.
WHAT IS WORSHIP LIKE?
Through our worship teams, you’ll experience an amazing time of worship directed toward God alone. We mix contemporary worship songs with upbeat traditional hymns of the faith to achieve a great balance of worship styles. Our worship time is carefully planned to prepare hearts and minds to receive what God will say through the preaching of His Word.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
At Grove, we encourage you to come as you are. Most people attend wearing business-casual attire; some wear suits, ties and dresses and others wear jeans or shorts. God sees our heart and that’s what He cares about; it’s not about the style of clothing we choose.
WHERE DO I PARK?
We have a team in our parking lot dedicated to helping you find a place to park. We also have signage to direct you to parking that has been reserved in our main lot for our guests.
