this will never get old.

we will see deaf ears open, people getting out of wheel chairs, people raised from the dead... we will see colds disappear, sprained ankles healed, chronic fatigue fade... We are already seeing it! The snowball effect is in full motion, y'all!

These are the world changers. The history makers. Never settling & always believing for the fullness! #grovecommunitychurch #x2lifestyle

“By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path. I’ve committed myself and I’ll never turn back from living by your righteous order. Everything’s falling apart on me, GOD; put me together again with your Word. Festoon me with your finest sayings, GOD; teach me your holy rules. My life is as close as my own hands, but I don’t forget what you have revealed. The wicked do their best to throw me off track, but I don’t swerve an inch from your course. I inherited your book on living; it’s mine forever— what a gift! And how happy it makes me! I concentrate on doing exactly what you say— I always have and always will.”
‭‭[Psalm‬ ‭119:105-112‬ ‭MSG‬‬]

The world tells us that we won't be satisfied until what we envision for our lives is fully our reality -- that our story goes on pause and that we’re simply “getting by” until then.
.
But OUR lives will tell a different story.
.
Maybe your vision is going through a valley. Maybe the dream that once felt close now seems far. Just as Abraham and Sarah waited on God’s promise of a son, our lives are often marked by seasons in the valley, waiting for certain promises to come to fruition.
.
No matter where you’re at along the journey, God’s character and faithfulness remain the same. He is the God of the Valley and the God of the Mountaintop, and His desire is to be intimately close to us. Even when it seems like the promise is far away, when we draw close to the heart of God, we can more easily zoom out and see what God is doing, and the fruit that He longs to produce — even in the waiting.
.
This will be our story. We will be a people who stand in the faithfulness of God. We will be a people who choose to see with new eyes what God is doing in the midst of our waiting. We will bear fruit in the valley while we await the dreams and visions that God has planted — because He is faithful to complete what He started.

We cannot wait for church tonight! Bring a friend and join us for our Sunday service, 5pm at Elmwood Church in St. Anthony! Directions are in our profile and on our site, grovempls.com⠀

Join us TONIGHT for an amazing evening of worship and prayer! Everyone is welcome, so tag your friends below. More details at the link in our profile.

NOTE THE TIME CHANGE: the Tab will be open from 7:30-10:30 tonight!

We all have Goliaths in our lives – enemies that instill fear, hurl insults, and have pushed us into places of distress. Maybe you’ve felt like the Israelites did when they encountered Goliath: afraid and without confidence. The Israelites believed that they couldn’t go up against Goliath and win, so they took on accusation and skepticism as their protection. But then David stepped on the scene with a different perspective.⠀

Instead of putting on fear, David chose something else. He chose to believe that he was a conqueror, put on the victory of past encounters instead of skepticism, and challenged Goliath with confidence – all with his eyes on the upgrade that was awaiting him.⠀

David painted a beautiful picture of the Warrior that was to come on our behalf. Jesus came, pushed past accusation and skepticism, and challenged our enemy by giving up his life; he crushed the head of our enemy and won back our authority.⠀

Jesus never took his eyes off of victory, so now we have the choice to choose a new perspective in the midst of shouts from an enemy who has already been defeated. We can look past what seems like the giants in our lives and follow in Jesus's wake; we can set our eyes on the victory that he already accomplished. It’s all about perspective.⠀

It's like the aspen tree.⠀

Spanned across the mountains are hundreds, possibly thousands of aspen trees. From the exterior, they may look like a bunch of individual trees. But, the reality is that they are all one. Connected at the roots. The same DNA.⠀

And that's our vision. One church, one vision, multiple communities. ⠀

We'd love for you to get connected with the right missional community for you! Check out our site and app to see who's already meeting around the Twin Cities.

We'd love for you to join us tonight at church! Service starts at 5pm at Elmwood Church in St. Anthony. Directions and more details are on our site!⠀

If you know someone looking for a church in the Twin Cities, tag them in the comments below and bring them to church tonight! ⠀

Join us next Friday, May 5th from 7:30-10:30p, for our monthly TABERNACLE: The MPLS Worship Room. More details at the FB event link in our profile.

Sometimes the weight of trying seasons feels like more than we can bear. We take up our swords, put on our armor, and move forward to fight, all the while asking the Lord, "Where are you?" Sometimes he feels distant, removed, and disconnected from our circumstances.⠀

But what if the armor we put on and the weapons we use aren't actually protecting us? What if they're prohibiting us from moving in the way that the Father intended? What if God's love already fought for us and defeated our enemies so that we could run free?⠀

Jesus took on our battles, our sin, and our hardship so that we could take off our armor, lay down our swords, and draw close to him -- no matter the season. Because after all, he's closer than our skin and bones. All we have to do is let go and pick up love instead.⠀

"I am the righteousness of God in Christ."⠀

As a community, we've committed to speak the truth about our identity in Christ over ourselves and one another. If you'd like to join us, print out our Identity Verses resource (link in profile), and start speaking these truths over yourself and others today!⠀

#grovecommunitychurch #grovempls

One of the most striking things about Easter is that it shows us the heart of the Father. According to the world’s standards, it’s normal for us to heap shame & guilt upon people for their actions that have wounded us – betrayal, hurt, rejection, you name it.⠀ ⠀
The crazy thing about God is that He's not like the world. Even when we chose other things that were never meant or able to satisfy us, He didn’t draw away in His hurt. He never gave up on His choice to love us; He never stopped seeing us as valuable & worthy.⠀ ⠀
The beauty of Jesus is that He came to earth, saw where we were, had compassion upon us & RAN to the Cross so that we could be right before our Father. He took all of the shame & guilt upon Himself so that we could once again wear robes of righteousness instead of cloaks of shame & rings of honor instead of disgrace. So, no matter where you’ve been, what you’ve done, or what you’ve seen, Jesus gives us a different ending to our story – so different than what we’d expect.

We are all born with the longing to have a relationship with a Father that runs. A Father who gives us a clean slate, wraps us in a robe of righteousness, and shows us our worth. We're not called to perform. We're called to come home. ⠀
