To my Grove family,

Weekend Message
You won’t want to miss this weekend as Pastor Daniel Bishop preaches a sermon he is calling, “A Glimpse of His Glory: The Transfiguration”. If you will read Matthew 17:1-13, Mark 9:2-13, and Luke 9:28-36, you will be ready for Daniel’s message.

All-Church Prayer Walk
As part of our “Rise Up and Shine in Prayer” focus this month, we will have our All-Church Prayer Walk at Mt. Rubidoux this Saturday, March 25. Families are encouraged to hike Mt. Rubidoux at their leisure and at any time that is convenient for them, stopping to pray where they feel led. After people have completed their hike, they are welcome to meet up at Ryan Bonaminio Park, 5000 Tequesquite Ave, Riverside, CA 92506, anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to have a picnic. We will have a meeting spot at the far west end of the park near the children’s playground. Everyone needs to bring their own blanket, chairs, lunches, and drinks. This should be a great day of prayer and fellowship with our church family

Teen Leadership Camp 
Join us for a three-day weekend, July 14-16, and make a difference in the lives of teenagers in foster care who need hope and encouragement from a positive role model. Youth and volunteers are matched 1:1 for a fun filled weekend packed with opportunities to be Jesus’ hands and feet. We are in need of camp counselors to come alongside our youth for a cost of $100.
