The Grove Church is a neighborhood church located in Dallas, TX. We love the imagery of coming together as a community and being the group of 'fruit-bearing trees' that Jeremiah writes about in the Old Testament (see Jeremiah 17:7-8). Our vision for The Grove is to become a church that lives out its faith in tangible ways, intentionally creating environments that gather people together, grow them closer to God, and give back to our neighbors. This podcast is our audio versions of live sermons preached every Sunday online and in-person.
Sloth: Why We Feel Restless and Resigned
Our society measures personal worth in terms of productivity, efficiency, and the maximization of our potential. But what if that's all wrong? What if busyness and workaholism aren't virtues but telltale symptoms of a deadly vice? In this sermon, Rev. Stephen Lohoefer shares a new understanding of the vice of sloth and how we can find peace in our restlessness.
You Are Why You Eat
A vice is a habit, a pattern of action, that develops into a character trait - and so, in short, what we do determines who we become. In this sermon, Rev. Stephen Lohoefer helps us examine the vices in our life and learn how to avoid their destructive patterns in pursuit of Christ-like virtues.
Tongues of fire?! Violent wind?! If you've never celebrated Pentecost before, it is a special day on the church calendar that marks the official end of the Easter season and the birth of the church itself.
This Sunday, we celebrate a famous scene in the book of Acts when the Holy Spirit fills the disciples with the power to bring heaven on earth. That legacy lives on in us-- the church! As followers of Jesus, we too have the Holy Spirit within us, empowering us to bring the kingdom of God here, right now, in our homes, our workplaces, and our lives.
The Call To Action
What's Your Plan?
In a story, the plan is given to the hero by the guide. It lays out the path for the hero to follow and explains who the hero needs to become to succeed. We see this in Star Wars with Obi-Wan Kenobi teaching Luke how to use the Force.
Similarly, we long for a plan in our own lives - someone or something to tell us what to do and who to become. But the danger comes when we trust the wrong guide and follow a bad plan. In this sermon, Rev. Stephen Lohoefer talks about the plan available to all of us and how to follow it.
I have been going to The Grove for three months now and have loved every second of it. God is working through these people and you can hear it in the sermons. Would recommend to anyone looking for a church to call home.
