Covenant Grove Church

We exist to partner with God -

Jesus said, "I am the Vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in Me and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from Me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)

Our church is all about God's mission of love. We will do anything other than sin to reach people who don't know Jesus and His love. We started in 2009 with a group of 44 people committed to reaching those who did not have a church home. We have met in schools, homes, online, in a tent, in a park, and in our church building. We are authentic about our faith and failures. We laugh together, eat together, serve each other, encourage each other, and forgive each other. We are anchored in hope, and we are faith-filled, prayer-led, big-thinking risk takers for Jesus!

We would love to have you join us on a Sunday, and we are here to talk more about Jesus, life, or any other questions you may have.

Roots of Love

Our focus is on Jesus - and everything we do connects back to His love. The love of Jesus transforms our lives - we don't earn it but respond to it with love. We don't just need help - we need new lives (resurrection), and that only happens with God's Spirit living in us. No other religion or philosophy teaches this - we are accepted just as we are, and we are transformed from the inside out.

There are three "Roots" that help us grow in God's love - Discipleship, Fellowship, and Mission. Covenant Grove focuses on life "below the surface" - so that each person's Roots can grow strong in Christ. This leads to resilient hope, grace-filled love, and overflowing joy!

being loved by and loving God

(Mark 12:29-31; Deut 6:4-5; Matt 4:18-20; John 15:1-17)

 Jesus called men and women to follow Him – to be His close friends and imitate Him. Discipleship is all about accepting God’s amazing love and responding humbly with a life of genuine, obedient, devoted love. We grow this love through daily time with Jesus in the Bible and prayer, through worship and rest, and through faithfully giving our time, energy, creativity, and resources for God. We are made to live in a growing relationship with our Creator – this is the greatest joy of life! 

loving the family of Jesus

(John 13:34-35; Luke 10:27; Lev 19:18; Acts 2:42-47; Gal 5:19-6:6)

Fellowship happens when we commit to love each other deeply and serve Christ together. We support, encourage, forgive, and challenge each other. We grow this love through Jesus-centered groups, through ministry, and through accountability. We welcome the outcast, seek to be a gathering of all nations, and work to be a place where reconciliation can happen. As we build up the Family of God the whole world takes notice – because we are made to live in community as we walk with Jesus!

with the Spirit - loving those lost, hurting, or in need

(Matt 28:18-20; Gen 12:1-3; Acts 1:8; Isa 11)

Jesus is God, and He came to this earth with a mission to seek and save the lost. And He called His people to follow Him and join His Kingdom mission to reach out to those who are lost, hurting, or in need. Mission happens when we follow the Holy Spirit – out of our comfort zones – and deeply care for people, sharing the hope of Jesus, and serving in Christ’s name. We grow this love when we have real relationships with those who don’t know Jesus, when we share the good news of the cross, and when we work for justice. We are made to make a difference – and with God’s help we truly can change the world!
