THE GROVE – COTTAGE GROVE

Grove Groups

SUNDAYS GET LOTS OF ATTENTION, BUT GROVE GROUPS ARE WHERE THE REAL GROWTH, LEARNING, AND RELATIONSHIP-BUILDING TAKE PLACE.

ONGOING GROUPS

Grove Groups are small groups meant to build meaningful relationships. Grove Group are made up of 8-10 people who provide each other with care and encouragement.

While there are varying levels of commitment (weekly vs monthly, online vs in-person), all Grove Groups share some things in common:

  • Weekly engagement around worship
  • Monthly get-togethers
  • On-going care
  • Service opportunties

New groups are forming now, but ongoing groups are always open in order to include new people.

STUDY GROUPS

Occasionally groups form for shorter periods of time to study a specific topic or book. Study groups are easy to jump into and dive deeper with a mix of people you might not otherwise be connected to.

BLESS THIS MESS

FULLY ON FACEBOOK
Parenting is hard, and parenting children in faith is even harder. When life is chaotic, it’s helpful to know that we’re not in it alone.
Join us as we encourage meaningful relationships and nurture the goodness in our kids alongside others whose lives are just as crazy as yours. Based on Bless This Mess by Molly Baskette and Ellen O’Donnell.

FAITHFUL AND INCLUSIVE

DATE AND TIME TBD
Faithful and Inclusive allows you to gain an understanding of how United Methodists can be both obedient to God’s Word and fully welcoming to LGBTQ persons in the church.

OUT OF OFFICE

DATE AND TIME TBD
The changes to how we work were only made more stressful by the pandemic. Rather than being consumed by work, however, how can we make those changes work for US and increase our ability to be present to ourselves, our family, and our community? Loosely based on Out of Office by Charlie Warzel and Anne Helen Peterson.

INTEREST GROUPS

Some people most easily build meaningful relationships through things they have in common with other people. Interest groups come in all shapes and forms, and we can add new groups at any time if we have even a handful of people interested.
