what we’re up to in

The Community

Sunday Worship

Get an online taste of our vision for The Grove’s worship experience — powerful music, compelling teaching, and a truly welcoming environment.



Build relationships and find encouragement for following the way of Jesus in everyday life.



Have fun and connect with others as we work with community partners to make Cottage Grove an even better place to live.



Come alongside other community organizations working to meet the needs of families in Cottage Grove.


Sunday Worship

Join us each Sunday evening at 5pm on Facebook Live or Church Online for an alternative worship experience.

What’s alternative mean?



Groups are intentionally smaller environments meant to grow meaningful relationships and encourage us in following the way of Jesus. With the onset of the COVID-19, most groups have been moved fully online.

Grove Groups

While we remain physically distanced, we don’t have to be alone! Grove Group are made up of 8-10 people who provide each other with care and encouragement. While there are varying levels of commitment, all Grove Groups share some things in common:

    – Weekly engagement around worship

    – Monthly get-togethers 

    – On-going care

Interested? We’d love to connect you to a Grove Group that is just right for you!


I prefer a group that meets:

2 + 13 =

Cottage Grove and Surrounding Area – Laid Off, Furloughed, and Job Loss group

This group is meant to share resources and build community for those in the Cottage Grove (MN) area who have been laid off, furloughed, or lost their job due to COVID-19.

Our hope is that you find this group to be empowering and encouraging. As such, members who disrespect or discourage one another may be removed at the administrator’s discretion.


Get out into the community. Have fun with friends and family. Build relationships. Make a difference.
