Grove Students

What is Grove Students about?

Making disciples.

Our mission is simple; we want our students to make disciples who make disciples. In other words, we want our students to love, treasure, and obey Christ while bringing others alongside them to do the same.

Deepening faith.

We understand that faith comes from hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17). We want our students to have the knowledge and love for God’s Word that will deepen their faith in Jesus as their only hope of salvation.

Finding community.

God is not opposed to fun and neither are we. Our hope is that our students form lifelong friendships and develop a community to help them as they work through middle and high school.

 — What is Grove Students? —

Our students meet every Wednesday from 6:00-8:00pm at the church office in downtown Clermont (761 W Montrose Street, Clermont, FL 34711). All students in grades 6-12 are welcome!
 
In our meetings, we seek to accomplish the three goals for Grove Students as noted above. We center our time on studying the Bible and also enjoy a time of fellowship and prayer.
 

 — What else do you do outside of Wednesdays? —

In addition to our weekly meeting, we periodically get together for special activities (bowling, retreats, summer camps, etc.) and seek missions opportunities.
 
We also want to encourage every student to get involved on their own in the life of the church. Whether that’s joining a small group or serving on a Sunday morning ministry team, there are a number of ways we encourage students to view The Grove not as their parents church, but as their church.
 
Our hope in doing this is to prepare students for when they graduate and go to college. We want to best prepare them to have their own faith and see the regular involvement of life in a church so that they are equipped for a life of faithfulness rather than becoming another statistic of a Christian child going to college and falling away from the faith.
