As The Grove prepares to move forward through the pastoral transition we are asking our church family and community to join us for 21 days of intentional prayer beginning on February 4, 2018. Prayer works and we know this, if we are faithful to prayer God will be faithful to hear, answer and bless. So we are entering the next 21 days with full faith, hope and expectancy that God is going to do something amazing as we prepare and pray in this new season.
So how will this work? Over the next 21 days we are encouraging our church family to pray at 12:15pm every Wednesday afternoon. You can surely pray at anytime on any particular day but we would like to be intentional in having our church family praying together and at the same time. Set an alarm or any other reminder and join for 21 days of prayer.
For the time being, Pastor Roland will be preaching on Sunday mornings as well as taking on other pastoral responsibilities. Our Servant Leaders are currently praying and seeking God's wisdom as they put together our Search Team. An official motion to accept the nominees for our Search Team will me made at the April quarterly meeting. Our pastors, staff and servant leaders will continue to update the church as new information becomes available.
