We believe an essential element of discipleship is authentic Christ-centered community. We also believe that such community is best found within the context of a small group setting. We call these groups Life Groups, since they are a crucial element in developing Christlikeness in our everyday lives. At the Grove, we start new off-campus Life Groups twice a year (February and September). These groups consist of a short-term commitment that usually lasts between 4 to 6 weeks based around a campaign Bible study we provide.
