Next Steps

Are you interested in learning more about The Grove Bible Chapel? If so, please join us for a Next Steps event to learn what it means to call The Grove your church home! You’ll learn about membership, Small Groups, serving, and more!


Here at The Grove, we believe that from the earliest followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, believers have identified with, and committed themselves to a particular local body. In light of this understanding, The Grove affirms the value of formal membership.

How Do I Become a Member?

  1. First, get an informed sense of who we are: Attend Next Steps. Next Steps helps you to fill you in on our vision, history, leadership, and the values that are most important to us. Email us here to get placed on the interest list, and we’ll let you know when the next one is scheduled.
  2. Next, connect in discipleship and serving: Pursue Christ in community through one of our Small Group ministries and find a place to serve here.
