By August 9, 2017 November 19th, 2019 Tom's Weekly Email

To my Grove family,

Weekend Message
This will be a very special weekend at The Grove as Pastor Daniel Bishop continues our series, “When No One Is Looking”, with his message entitled, “Dangerous Minds”. If you will read Matthew 6:25-34 you will be ready for the weekend message. Come early to get a cup of free coffee from the HUB and a breakfast burrito or something yummy!

Everybody Can Do Something
Are you looking for a place to use your God-given talents and gifts? Come to our Ministry Faire in the Gym after services the weekend of August 19/20and find a place to get connected doing what you love to do while blessing others. The different ministries will be represented and some of our Grove staff and volunteers will be there to meet you and help you find the perfect place to serve.

Benevolence Offering
If you were here last weekend then you know I asked you to give a special benevolence offering for our kids’ house in Thailand (Remember Nhu) as their well went dry and they have no water. They needed $7,000 dollars to dig their well deeper so I asked you to give double as we normally give around $3,000 each time we take a benevolence offering. Do you know what the total was? I will tell you tomorrow in a special email to the church. Let me just say again, “You are an awesome church”.

HUB Specials
On Saturday, enjoy chicken fajitas with cilantro rice and refried beans served with a beverage for $9.95. There will be a dessert Saturday night of the chef’s choice for all guests who order the special. Sunday we will have a ham and mushroom omelet for our breakfast special for $7.40 and a meatball sandwich for our lunch special for $6.40!

Financial Peace University
