Rather than being defined by buildings, styles, or services, we're a family of families who follow Jesus together. And it's our hope that you'll feel welcomed into our gatherings and lives as we learn to be more like Him.
On Sunday mornings, we gather in two locations to celebrate Jesus. Like any other get-together, there'll be people to greet you at the door, and some refreshments to help pick you up while you're there.
In the service, there will be times of music, prayer, and messages as we learn to follow Jesus and celebrate what God has done together.
We've designed safe and inspiring environments especially for our children to learn how much they are loved by Jesus. Each of our children are precious to God and to us, so we're excited to lead them to walk in relationship to Him.
Church at the Grove began as a dream to reach the first generation of the East Metro-Atlanta area born and raised in a post-Christian American culture.
In 2006, we launched our first gathering at Youth Middle School in Loganville, GA, under the leadership of founding pastors Russ Butcher and Craig Story. We began to connect with local schools, community organizations, and law enforcement by serving the local community. We worked to create environments where people could come and feel welcomed no matter their background.
In 2010, we moved our gatherings to the new Walnut Grove High School, and we saw growth in depth and reach.
In order to reach more people with the message of Jesus, we decided to take a big step of faith and launch another campus in Social Circle. By 2012, Nathan and Katelyn Boyd had left their familiar surroundings in Walnut Grove to launch a new Sunday gathering at Social Circle Middle School.
In 2016 because of the generosity of the people of Church at the Grove we were able to buy property on the Walnut Grove Parkway and construct an incredible facility where we can gather on Sunday mornings. Since moving into this facility our Walnut Grove Campus has expanded reaching more people in our community.
In 2018 the Lord opened up a door for our Social Circle campus to rent a awesome facility behind the Blue Willow Inn in the heart of Social Circle. This new facility has allowed this campus to continue to impact the community in amazing ways and connect with young families.
We continue to be amazed at how God uses our weaknesses and frailty to change lives and give the hope of Jesus to our communities!
