BAPTISM is celebrated as part of our worship together. The Sacrament of baptism is shared with infants, children, youth, and adults that have not been baptized. It is a sign of God’s love for an individual, and the beginning of a lifelong journey with the community into closer relationship with Jesus Christ. Persons desiring baptism or parents wanting to bring their children for baptism should schedule a time to meet with the pastor.
HOLY COMMUNION, also called the Lord’s Supper, is one of two sacraments in the United Methodist Church. It is the sacrament of nurture, in which we gather around a table and ingest bread and wine as symbols for feeding our spiritual selves so that we can grow in our relationship with God.
Groves Ministries celebrates the Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month.
WEDDING is a chance to celebrate the love of two persons (one man and one woman*) for each other, as a reflection of Christ’s love for us. The wedding vows build upon our baptismal covenant. The pastor is delighted to perform Christian wedding ceremonies for members and non-members at Groves Ministries.
In most cases, three pre-marital sessions are required for counseling
and planning purposes.

FUNERAL is a chance both to remember and celebrate the deceased’s life, and to anticipate the promise of resurrection in Jesus Christ. The pastor will perform Christian funeral services for members and non-members at Groves Ministries. For services held at church, we can help host a reception or meal following the event.
