Places To Serve

We are never more satisfied in our relationship with the living God than when we offer back to Him our time and talents in service. At Grove Avenue Baptist Church there are many opportunities for meaningful service either week to week or for special initiatives or events. We want to help you find a place to serve that best fits your gifts, experience, and passion.
