He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” –Luke 10:27
Service Times & Types
In the summer months, Memorial Day through Labor Day, we do not have an 8:00 AM service.
Traditional worship at Grove keeps us in touch with the deepest roots of the Christian faith. Central to the act of worship is allowing ourselves to be touched by the Spirit of God. Each element of worship has the potential for accomplishing this. God can speak to us anywhere, but it is in the intentional act of worship that we put ourselves into a place where we can hear God’s voice, whether it be through singing, prayer, reading Scripture, or a sermon. Traditional worship at Grove is not a performance; it is participatory. We seek to involve everyone in the act of worship. It is our hope that the worship experience will comfort those who are challenged by the brokenness of our world, while challenging those who are a bit too comfortable with the status quo. At various times during the month our worship will be enhanced by the contributions of the Tabernacle (adult) Choir, the Cherub Choir, the Junior Choir, and various soloists (both voice and instrumental). We invite you to come and worship with us.
Sunday Mornings @ 11:00 AM
The ARISE! service is a way of worshiping God using a full array of music from traditional with a modern twist, to current contemporary Christian music. Thinking outside the box is something we strive to do. The service uses multimedia and drama ministries to link our daily lives with God and God’s word. Our Youth Choir joins the Arise! service weekly and presents their renditions of old hymns and new anthems with authenticity and enthusiasm. The framework of the service maintains some aspects of what you would find in a traditional worship service such as a pastoral message and observance of the sacraments (baptism and communion). The Director of Contemporary Worship, Ken Johnson, has local roots leading music with a classical flare. He leads the Pieces of One praise band and helps arrange and guide the service with energy and creativity. Our hope is that the structure of each Arise service allows guests and members alike to worship in a slightly more-casual environment. So, if you like the versatility of David Crowder, Chris Tomlin, Steven Curtis Chapman or Hillsong, you will like the music. If you connect with the Creator through visual or hands-on means, we’re sure you’ll like Arise!
