Everything we do, and everything we are, is because of our need of a hope that is bigger than ourselves. At The Groves Church, we seek to live our lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the center. We believe and trust that it is only through the completed work of Christ on the cross that our lives can be pleasing to God. Living a Gospel-centered life is allowing the Gospel and the Jesus to impact every area of our thinking, feeling, relating, working and behaving.
We are a multi-generational congregation. Our congregation has young children, growing families, middle aged adults, seasoned adults, both married and single.
We are a relational church. At The Groves, you have the opportunity to know and be known by others. Our Pastors, staff and Elders are accessible and available. We gather for worship and in smaller groups called Gospel Communities at our church building and in homes. You'll find a welcome and relaxed environment and warm, welcoming people.
We commonly say at The Groves that we are a church in the community, for the community. We love Webster Groves and the greater mid-county area, and are made up of people who live, eat, shop and play here. From Webster Groves to Maplewood, Kirkwood to Shrewsbury, you'll discover people who neighbors, business owners, parents and professionals. We share our facilities with area schools, local businesses, and community organizations.
We believe that every person who follows Jesus is a missionary. We actively engage our culture to share our story of how Jesus has changed our life and how he can change the lives of our neighbors and friends.
