COmpassion Team

Part of our mission at The Grove is to show compassion. The Compassion Team exists to make that happen! 

Throughout the year, we organize various service projects any opportunities to give to the community. 

If you are interested in joining the Compassion Team, please contact our team leader.

  • COmpassion Buckets

    Our Compassion Buckets are a way to help families in our community financially. You can give to our Compassion Buckets in-person, or on our giving page. No matter if it is $1 or $100, each donation goes straight to local people in need. So far in 2021 our Compassion Buckets have:

    • Paid rent for a woman recovering from Cancer and COVID
    • Purchased $500 in groceries for a single mother who is struggling financially
    • Paid an overdue electric bill for a family
  • Jail Outreach

    3-4 times per year, we partner with the Chaplain at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail by sending homemade baked goods and notes to encourage the staff. These small treats open doors for him to connect with and encourage the staff.

  • COmpassion Sunday

    Once a year, we dedicate a Sunday to serving in the community. On Compassion Sunday, we do not have a typical worship service, instead, we spend the day around Charlottesville doing various community service projects.

  • The Laurels

    We regularly partner with The Laurels to brighten the days of the nursing home residents and staff. We send groups on or around holidays to deliver treats, sing to, pray with, and spend time with the people there. 

  • Hunger GAMES

    The Hunger Games is an ongoing food collection we have. Food can be brought to the Church any time and left in the bin by the front doors. All food donations are given to Hungry Hearts, a ministry serving families in need at Hollymead Elementary School. Once a month we encourage Lifegroups to compete and see who can bring in the most food items.

  • Baker-Butler

    We regularly partner with the counselors at Baker Butler Elementary School to meet needs of students, whether that is collecting school supplies, food, or gift cards for families in need.
