Grove Presbyterian Church is a body of faith that is committed to living God’s love. We do this through worship, study, service and by developing relationships. This is all done in the name of Jesus Christ for the common good of our community and the world.
The congregation’s vision for ministry is one that expands beyond the four walls of our church. It is one that focuses first and foremost on loving God, our neighbors, and nurturing ourselves. Our vision is of a ministry that strives for excellence by identifying the needs of our congregation and addressing those needs, all the while providing pastoral care for everyone in our congregation and the greater community. This Vision is lived out in many ways:
