Words cannot express how excited I am about what God is doing in the lives of people in our church and in the life of Church at the Grove overall!

I spoke with a couple on Sunday night that shared their desire to turn and follow Jesus and completely trust Him with their lives! As a result, they both desire to be baptized on March 13 at our next baptism celebration at CATGrove!  They are an example of what God is doing in the lives of many people in and through CATGrove.

The month of February we had the highest average attendance of any month in the history of CATGrove outside of an EASTER date.  That is incredible!  Thank you for investing into the lives of people and sharing the love of Jesus with those around you.

We had a total offering of over $12,000.00 this past Sunday! Wow!  Our BIG GIVE portion was $2270.00 and will go to helping Resurrecting Hope with putting a new roof on a home and to “Life Pack Urban Ministry” and their outreach to the homeless communities around us!  Yeah God!  Thank you God for your faithfulness and thank you CATGrove for your generosity!

If you are interested in being baptized on March 13 please let us know and we will get you some info to help you prepare for that special day!

COMMUNITY GROUPS are going awesome!  Don’t miss out on what God is doing in our groups.

NEXT STEPS This Sunday! It’s not too late to sign up!  Let us know ASAP so we can include you.  This is where you learn about the mission and vision of CATG and it is required for membership!  We have lunch together at noon this Sunday March 6 at the home of Russ and Joanna Spires!

Reflecting on this past Sunday:

Scripture Memory:

Matthew 6:21 (ESV)
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Action Step:
Practice consistent, prioritized, percentage giving.  Example:  Give 10 away, Save 10, Live on the rest!

Big Idea:
Generosity Breaks the Power of Greed!
