It's that time of year again!  From Sunday, August 4 -11, Love Herndon will be hosting a drive to collect 200 backpacks for both Clearview and Coates students in need.  We hope you can help us meet our goal.  Let's gear-up our littlest neighbors for school!  To make it easier for you, backpacks will be on sale in the Fellowship Hall starting August 4.

Please join us this Friday, July 19 @ 7pm for our next night of Summer Pizza & Bible.  Please RSVP so that we can get a head count for food.  

We'll start off with some pizza and fellowship, after which, we will learn, discuss, and reflect on each "act" of the Gospel Story. Drawing from the book,  The Drama of Scripture, this week we will explore "Act 1" in the Story of the Gospel. One of our elders, Sam Kwon, will serve as the principal lead for these gatherings and facilitate discussions informally, in both large group and break-out group settings.

The Grove Junior High Summer Retreat is just around the corner on July 26-28! 

We are excited to come alongside your children as they walk with Jesus in their spiritual journey.  We ask that you pray for each student to powerfully encounter our living God as their personal Lord and Savior throughout the retreat. Please also pray that God will strengthen all our leaders and volunteers, as they serve out of an overflow.  

Parents, you can find details you need regarding the retreat on the 
Grove website.  

As our mission teams prepare to head out, let's partner with our brothers and sisters by covering them with our prayers.
