Life in the Grove // Equipping Focus

The core of our shared mission is to disciple, equip and release, and we want to grow in the way that we are intentionally equipping people in our church family. We are launching an intentional learning community that would meet twice a month beginning in September, taking a break for most of December/January, and then continue through the spring.

The goal of the equipping time will be for people to grow in confidence in these areas:

  1. their personal followership of Jesus and spiritual formation.

  2. their readiness to make disciples (point others to Jesus).

  3. their ability in gathering and leading small groups.

The sessions will be a combination of Scriptural teaching, practical application, discussion and activation. We also  plan to read through the You See Bones, I See an Army  by Floyd McClung during the fall and Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster in the spring as a part of our learning together.

Fall Equipping will take place on Thursdays from 6:45 PM -9:15 PM OR Saturdays from 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM. We will be meeting at the McKoys' house.

We will be offering the same teaching both days - you choose one day to attend.

 

Fall Dates are as follows:

September 16/18

September 23/25

October 7/9

October 21/23

November 4/6

November 18/20

December 2/4 

Please text Brad if you are interested in being a part of this ASAP - we need a final count to order books!

Ongoing Rhythms

Simple Churches - We have a few groups of 3-12 people that meet weekly or biweekly & have committed to intentionally follow Jesus together, as a small expression of Church.  These groups meet in various homes, parks, etc. & typically include an expression of worship, digging into the Word, and fellowship with each other.

Sunday Mornings - see below for more info! This is not intended to be a Sunday morning service that we encourage everyone in our spiritual family to attend! It is simply one expression of many.

Worship & Prayer Room - The prayer room at the HUB is open for worship & prayer Wednesdays from 7:30-9 AM. We are also committed to hosting quarterly Weekends of Worship & Prayer, along with Monthly Worship Nights!

Monthly Family Brunch - The last Sunday of the Month, we meet at the Hub for brunch, worship, announcements, & a teaching.

Sundays this Fall

We have been in a season where our emphasis as a church has been in following Jesus in small groups of 3-5 people. While we are continuing to encourage people in this discipline as an integral part of being the church together, we are also looking forward to launching a fresh Sunday morning expression of church that will provide an onramp for college students and people from the Grove City community to encounter God together.

Starting September 5th, this expression will begin meeting at the HUB at 10:30 AM!

 

Starting September 12th, we will begin "Essential Church" - a 6 week series about the basics of what the Church is and how we express it. We ask that everyone who is part of our local church body join us for the Essential Church series.  After that, we will continue primarily meeting weekly in our smaller expressions - small groups, simple churches, etc.

Communication Updates

We want to improve the clarity of our communication by providing a consistent place for you to access announcement information. We are maintaining the homepage with a simple new format: Weekly Rhythms (What's happening now), and Mark your Calendar (What's Next).


We will also  be updating this announcements page regularly with items that we discuss in our group gatherings to ensure that everyone has a common and consistent location that they can access to get on the same page.
