What's Happening this Sunday: Sunday August 2 we highlight the Reconciliation Prayer. We also will welcome Amanda Leicht back into church membership and celebrate communion.
Bible View: Genesis 32: 9-12 presents Jacob fearful of how his brother will receive him after he defrauded him. Colossians 1: 15-23 gives us a beautiful hymn about Christ reconciling the world.
A Word about Our Worship Services
We worship every Sunday morning.
From Labor Day weekend through Memorial Day weekend Grove offers two services of worship: the 8:30 Early Service and the 11 AM Service of Worship
From Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, we combine these services into the one 9:30 AM service of worship.
The Early Service is a simpler service, more intimate, shorter, and less formal than the 11 AM service. Communion by intinction (coming forward to the table to dip bread in the cup of juice) happens every Sunday at the 8:30 service.
The 11 AM service features the choir, church organ, and traditional hymns. The service follows the three-fold pattern common among Reformed Churches: Preparation for the Word, Proclamation of the Word, Response to the Word. Communion, which is served by the elders to worshipers in the pews, happens every first Sunday.
Nursery is available during summer hours and the 11 AM service (more for the relief of the parents -- we love the kids making noise in the sanctuary).
