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.
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.

**Communion supplies are available in front of both of our campuses**

This week was a continuation of the previous week when we looked at the need for the church to live salty lives in a flavorless world. Jesus continues his metaphor saying that his followers should be light in the dark world. In a world where the Church is constantly mocked and given a bad reputation there is a desperate need for followers of Jesus to truly live in such a way that brings glory to our heavenly Father.

In the message we were challenged with two essential truths; first, followers of Jesus are not meant to have an “on/off switch.” Sometimes it seems as if Christian can turn on their faith when they are around other believers but when they are living their lives outside of the church they turn their faith off, this should never be. The second truth we were challenged by was that our lives shine the brightest in the darkest places. Darkness is removed only when the light comes.

About every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. That means, in the time it’s taken you to read this, someone has needed blood.  But although nearly half of people are able to donate blood, only about 5 percent actually do.  This can result in blood shortages for hospitals.

Church at the Grove is partnering with the Red Cross to ensure that our local bank of available blood and blood types can provide life-saving transfusions to patients in need. Give blood.  You could literally save a life.

Give blood at our Social Circle Campus on Monday, April 12th from 1-6pm.
