THE GROVE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

Grow Goodness.

Located in Cottage Grove, Minnesota, The Grove is a new church growing vibrant faith in children, families, and community.

 

First, let us start with a welcome we really mean.

 

Come as you are — you’ll be welcomed

We strive to reflect God’s love to all.

be who you are — you’ll be celebrated

We honor the sacred worth and dignity of persons of every age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical and mental capacity, education, economic, and marital status.

explore where you are — you’ll be encouraged

We recognize that faith is a journey of trust & transformation, where beliefs are formed and reformed in community.

  So why start a new church in Cottage Grove anyway?

At The Grove – Cottage Grove, we have a deep passion for creating a faith community for people who have felt they needed to leave the church or never felt welcome in the first place.

Maybe you have been told — explicitly or implied — that there is something wrong with you. Maybe church has felt stale and routine with little connection to your real life. Maybe the words and the practices you’ve experienced when you’ve walked into a church building have felt so unfamiliar that it seemed clear that you didn’t belong.

In any case, you are NOT alone. And we are starting a new church in Cottage Grove for people just like you — looking for meaningful relationships, good things for kids, and ways to make our community an even better place to live.

We are all loved. We all belong. We all can grow goodness.
