We all have defining moments in our lives–challenging circumstances, relational pain, and transitional seasons. Care Ministry is a resource for you, so please don’t hesitate to let us know of a concern, hospitalization, death or birth. The Grove Church family can come around you in your time of need, with a network of ministries, helpful resources and trained volunteers.
"Carry each other's burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2).

When a request is emailed, you will have the option to respond or not, depending on your availability. It's that simple. Whether it's providing a ride to an appointment, or a helping hand around the house, Care Connection is a practical way to show Christ's love to one another.
