Here at The Grove, we believe that from the earliest followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, believers have identified with and committed themselves to a particular local body. In light of this understanding, The Grove affirms the value of formal membership.
How Do I Become a Member?
- First, get an informed sense of who we are: Attend a New Members Class. The New Members Class helps to fill you in on our vision, history, leadership, and the values that are most important to us.
- Next, connect in discipleship and serving: Pursue Christ in community through one of our Lifegroup ministries and find a place to serve.
- Then, complete an application: If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and have expressed publicly your commitment by being baptized, you can fill out the application below.
