If you clicked this page, then you probably want to know more about The Grove and what it’s like to be here. Coming to a new church can be really intimidating… we get it, so we want to make the process fun, informative, and seamless for you and your family.
You’ve come to the right place!
First of all, The Church at Pleasant Grove is not a place, but rather a group of real, normal people who happen to gather at this location… and in whom Christ is doing something real and lasting. This means that we “have church” every day of the week through living honest, authentic lives together. We also happen to gather on Sundays. None of us is perfect, so come join us just as you are.
When we do gather on Sundays, everything is pretty casual. Our worship leaders and bands lead us to sing songs together that reflect the deep and encouraging truths of grace and the gospel. We have two main speakers who collaborate and share insights from God’s Word in creative, honest messages. You will also hear people’s stories of the life change they are experiencing in Christ and in real community with His people. Our goal here is to be genuine… this is a place where you belong because we are all learning to belong together in Christ.
WHEN YOU GET HERE
Coming In: Park anywhere you want and expect to be welcomed at the front door by friends who are ready to meet and assist you.
Checking In Your Kids: If you have children (birth through fifth grade), our team will direct you to our Check-In areas down the stairs to the right. The Check-in team will help you enter your information on one of the screens and you will be given two printed stickers, one for you and one for your child. Just bring your sticker back down when you check them out after service.
The Broo Cafe: You won’t want to miss out on stopping by The Broo, a full-service cafe that serves hot and cold espresso drinks, along with a weekly featured breakfast item. If you’re new, your first drink in The Broo is free, so just let the barista know this is your first time so you can enjoy the impending rush of sugar and caffeine. All proceeds from The Broo help children in Calcutta, India and Wilson County CASA, so feel free to take a look at the beautiful pictures and descriptions posted all around the cafe.
Guest Services: Stop by and meet our team at Guest Services (in the back of the sanctuary) who are ready to meet you. You can fill out a Guest Card or you can stop by our website later to give us your information, just so we can say hi (we promise we won’t spam you or show up at your door with cookies, a casserole, or with… well, anything.) NOTE: While we do not give these out, we do accept cookies and casseroles.
Let Us Get To Know You. We know that you’re here to check out our church and we are grateful that you are doing so. We share this same goal, which is why we would love to get to know you as well. So either before or after the service, feel free to find someone with a lanyard (some of them will be in the back near Guest Services),if you have any questions or if you just want to meet a new friend.
1. Fill Out A Guest Card either in printed form or online.
2. Join us for a virtual convo with the pastor, a fun call we host for you and your family every several weeks where we talk more about the church, our history, next steps, and above all else, your story.
3. Membership. This ain’t your grandma’s church membership course. In other words, we believe that membership in your local church should be synonymous with what it biblically means to be a member of the Body of Christ. We know that this is a far cry from the way most people view church membership, so sign up and take this course to learn more about what we mean. Also, we usually have donuts, so yeah…
4. Get into Community and Service. After Membership, we will help get you into a community group where you can begin to really be known by others and grow together as disciples. We will also help you find a place to get involved on the Serve Team. Membership is the pathway to all of these things.
