Weekly Update 3/24/21

You're invited to celebrate Easter at Church at the Grove!
We hope that you will join us for Easter 2021 as we celebrate the greatest news in human history. If you have been unable, or not felt comfortable, to join us in-person we would love for Easter to be the week that you choose to come back to in-person gatherings, but like always we will have online options.

Saturday, April 3rd, 2021 - 5pm
Sunday, April 4th, 2021 - 9:15am & 11am

If you plan on joining us for in-person gatherings please RSVP so we can ensure we have enough room to still practice social distancing.
This week Jesus commands his disciples to be the salt of the earth. In this verse Jesus is commanding his disciples to live radically different lives from the rest of culture. In this series Jesus has already told us that people in his Kingdom are poor in Spirit, mournful, meek, hunger and thirst for righteousness, merciful, pure in heart, peacemakers, and persecuted. When followers of Jesus live in this radically different way they become the salt, flavoring a flavorless world.

This week we talked about salt that has lost its saltiness. The problem in our church culture today is that we possess lots of information but we fail to follow through in obedience. We were challenged this week to not just hear a message but strive to live out the message. The Good Life will never be achieved if we don’t live in obedience to the words of Jesus.

If you did miss the talk from Sunday, you can view it now through our website, click here.  You can also view the message through our YouTube page or Audio Podcast. Be sure to check out the Sermon Application Guide to talk things over with your Community Group or family.
Easter is almost here and we are hosting egg hunts at each campus.
Social Circle - Friday, March 26th, 6 p.m. @ Friendship Park
Walnut Grove - Sunday, March 28th, following the 11:00 service

**If you have not returned your eggs please do so by Wednesday night at 6pm, drop them in front of our buildings. 
We have a special online only Good Friday Gathering on April 2nd at 7:00pm. We are encouraging you to gather with your community group or with other family members to remember and celebrate the greatest act of love the world has ever known. We will also use this gathering to celebrate communion together, if you need supplies we will have them available for you to pick up this Sunday or you can use supplies you have around your house.

Don't let the Easter season pass you by without spending time reflecting on the incredible truths of what we are celebrating. 
This past weekend we put on the Thrive Conference for women. We had nearly 80 women take part in the conference where they were challenged to put on the full armor of God and stand firm. Take a look at the video above for a short recap. If you were a part of this event we would love to hear what God did in you life, please email us and let us know.
