“Serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received”

I Peter 4:10

Here at Grove, we strive to take the forgiveness borne of Christ’s sacrifice and go out into the world as reflections of his love.  Through ministries such as the Good Samaritan Mission, Gate House, Young Life, the Ronald McDonald House and Camp Victory, we engage with our local community in spreading the message of the Gospel.  National and international missionary work include events like the CROP walk, work with CEPAD in Nicaragua, and the senior high youth group summer mission trip.

Mission activities include, but are not limited to, the following:
