This is an exciting time for The Grove Church. Over the past two years we have seen God grow our church tremendously. The Grove has moved from worshipping one service to two to three and now four. We have seen our church grow from just over 100 people to a peak Sunday this Fall of over 800 people. Roughly 50 people have given their lives to Jesus Christ. Hundreds of people have gone all over the U.S. and the world on short term mission trips, and dozens are planning for futures in long term missions. I could go on and on about all the amazing things we have seen God do over the past two years. God has blessed us so much, and I try to thank him daily for allowing me to be a part of what He is doing at The Grove.
In the midst of all of this, you have responded to what God is calling you to do. As a body, we have stepped up in serving and giving and inviting. You have recognized that God is calling us to “reach people to become fully-devoted, world-changing followers of Christ,” and you are being used by God to make that happen.
Now we embark on a new adventure together. It is time for us to be Making Room. We need to make room for the hundreds, even thousands of people that God is calling us to reach. We have to take a step of faith together to raise the money needed so we can move to the new facility that God has prepared for us. I invite you to check out this site, spend the next few weeks praying with us and ask God how he wants to use you as we are Making Room.
I could not be more proud of The Grove Church and the growth I have seen in us as we have followed God’s call. I also could not be more excited as I anticipate the mighty works of God and the new heights we will see in our relationship with Him as we follow Him on this next venture.
