Grove and Radford City Schools

There is a small group of us who would like to send a little treat to the Pre-K staff and send a little treat or surprise to the preschool children to show them that Grove cares and we love that they are here.  If you would like to contribute once or occasionally, please let Dana DeHart dwdehart02@gmail.com or Jean Carson 639-5268 know and they will add you to the list of those to contact  from time to time. 

*We have to be very careful what is sent in to the children because of allergies and we have to organize how to get it there and not visit because of COVID-19.

Join us at our "Hybrid" style of worship service!

September 2020

Here are some ways to connect and grow at Grove with small groups!

In the history of the Christian Church and in particular in the roots of Methodism, we have been taught and know that while gathering to worship is central to our Christian life together, small groups are the heart of our Christian formation and fellowship.

Check out these small group opportunities. Each group will meet outdoors at Grove UMC unless otherwise indicated. Participants will need to wear masks and practice social distancing when gathered together. Connecting to some of these groups through Zoom is also possible.

  • O‚ÄôDonnell Class: Sunday mornings following 9:30 am worship. Using the Adult Bible Study Series for lecture and discussion Wayne Pridgen leads this class in lively exploration of God‚Äôs Word for God‚Äôs people today. Open to everyone!

 

  • Gardeners in the Grove: Fridays 9:00 am -10:30 am Sept 25- Oct 30; Do you love and enjoy God‚Äôs created world? Have a passion for planting, weeding, mowing? This group is created just for you! Gardeners in the Grove will meet briefly as a group to study and reflect on Creation Care and then spend 30-60 min (less if you wish, more if you like) tending the lawns and gardens around the Grove. It is possible to work solo. This group for all ages is facilitated by Rev Dr Jan.

 

  • Short Stories by Jesus: Wednesdays 5:30-6:30 pm Sept 30 - Nov 4 on the lawn at Grove UMC. Using Amy Jill Levine‚Äôs book of the same title, this short study looks at the parables Jesus told through the eyes of Jewish history, his early followers, and how they speak into our life today. Zoom participants also welcome with registration. Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Jan.

 

  • Cub Scout Pack 46: Thursday‚Äôs 6:00 - 7:00 pm in the pavilion. Pack 46 had their first outdoor socially distanced meeting on Sept 17. Pack Master is John Henderson and Grove UMC Representative is Olivia Carchia. Know a cub scout who might like to join? Contact Olivia at 856- 669-1387.
