LGBTQ+

The Grove Church statement on being fully inclusive and affirming of the LGBTQ+ Community. 

*We believe God blesses, celebrates, and affirms same-gender relationships in the same way God blesses, celebrates, and affirms opposite-gender relationships.

*Membership and participation at The Grove Church will not be exclusive based on sexual orientation or sexual identity.  

*Those wishing to have a same-gender wedding at The Grove Church will have the same opportunity as any other couple wishing to have a wedding ceremony at The Grove Church.  

* Grove Church staff may choose to participate and perform same-gender wedding ceremonies.

We are very excited to announce that we will premiere our full-length documentary, The Grove, on Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 7pm. We are inviting you and all your friends and family to come and hear our story and the story of so many others in our community.
It's been a long and difficult journey for many of us and we are so grateful to be surrounded by a community that wants to lead with love when it comes to our LGBTQ+ friends.

Our hope in creating this documentary is to encourage other churches and individuals to join the journey into full inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community and to become a support and resource to them. We hope pastors, churches, and friends, will be inspired to rethink their beliefs on this sensitive topic.
