It is our goal to provide adult ministry experiences that will help you connect, grow and share hope as Jesus commanded in Matthew 22:34-40 and 28:18-20. From Sunday morning Adult Classes, to mid-week Men's and Women's ministries, all are designed to meet you where you are on your faith journey and help you identify your next steps.


Adult Classes

In these classes, you will have an opportunity to build relationships with other adults and study God’s Word. Whether you're a believer or exploring the Christian faith, these groups can assist you to grow in faith and friendship with others. You are welcome to join a class at any time. They are open to anyone who is 18 years of age or older.


Sundays | 8:00am | Room 110

A gathering of early risers, married or single, wanting to connect as they study God's Word, support one another and pray. Join us at 7:45am for coffee before class.


Sundays | 9:00am | Room 220

This is a class for people of all ages who like to dig into their faith and find ways to make it practical.  We'll dive deep into God's Word and discuss it together. This Fall, we will be studying the Old Testament book of Job. Join us at any point. 


Sundays | 10:45am | Room 220

We are a class devoted to continual rediscovery of Christ operating in our lives. We will be spending time in Scripture and learning more about Jesus and His mission in and through us. Whatever life-stage you are in, you are welcome here.

Growth Groups

Growing is an important part of becoming a passionate disciple of Jesus. In every area of our lives there is an aspect of growth. We grow physically, emotionally and cognitively. The same is true of our spiritual lives and our relationship with God. This is the desired objective of our Growth Groups. These groups are designed to be the place where relational connections can be made in a more intimate setting to allow for deeper growth to take place in people’s lives and their relationship with God.

We are excited to see our entire church heading along the same path of discipleship and growth and we cannot wait to see all that God will do in and through the people of The Grove through these Growth Groups.


Current Growth Group Series | Act 1-8 | Sign up for a Growth Group

Join a Growth Group today by registering on online. For the fall, we will be studying Acts 1-8, roughly following the Sermon Series with a view of putting hands and feet to the model of “churching” together presented in that section of Scripture.

Getting Started at The Grove

December 1 & January 5 | Following Each Service | Room 270  

If you are new to The Grove Church, we recognize coming to a church for the first time can be intimidating. So, to make it a little easier to connect, we’ve designed something just for you. We invite you to join us for a 15 minute gathering to help you discover your next step into The Grove Church community.



Women’s Ministry desires to connect women in creative ways to Jesus and one another. We long to provide opportunities to grow as a community and develop passionate women of faith.

Men's Ministry desires to help men develop a personal relationship with Christ, be spiritual leaders in their homes, loving husbands and dedicated fathers. In today's culture these roles can be challenging and confusing to live out. We exist to help men grow and passionately share the love of Christ to those around them.
