We love kids and want them to love Jesus and church! Our kids love learning about the Bible while having lots of fun. We take the responsibility of caring for your children very seriously. Each child's safety is important to us- physically, emotionally and spiritually. For your first visit to The Grove, feel free to fill our our online registration form ahead of time, or a check in volunteer will be happy to walk you through the process on Sunday morning.
