From the Pastor:

It is indeed an honor to have you visit our ministry, via web. We are excited about what GOD is doing in the life of our church!  

This site is designed to connect our ministry with the world to champion the cause of CHRIST. It is also an invaluable tool for linking our membership and ministries for the purpose of edification. As you browse through our site, we encourage you to make us a part of your weekly internet tour to keep abreast of events and happenings here at 'The Grove'.

It’s our prayer and hope that if you're ever in the Eastern North Carolina area, you’ll be inspired to join us in fellowship during one of our worship experiences.

Be encouraged!
