About DeerGrove Covenant

Our Story

At DeerGrove, we view worship as a conscious effort to constantly have God at the center of our lives and we invite you to actively participate.  Our desire is to experience and respond to the presence of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  We believe this can be accomplished through preaching of the Word, reading of Scripture, singing, drama, art, sharing our story in community and simply by how we live our lives.  We value the entirety of the Kingdom of God and strive to have an intergenerational focus while investing in the lives of those in our church body, our community and our world at large.

DeerGrove Covenant began meeting publicly in 1995 at an area community center.  Since then, we met in two schools and a hotel until December of 2009 when God gave us the gift of the permanent building where we meet today.

Our Beliefs

DeerGrove is a church that has always sought to be welcoming and inviting, creating an authentic community for people to connect with God, with others, and with the wider world. It is our hope and desire that we continue to reflect Jesus Christ, Serve Through the Spirit, and Nurture One Another in God's Love.

  • We value Life Together as a church focused on community, genuineness, and encouragement to grow in faith.

  • We value the pursuit and growth of an Intergenerational Church Family focused on vibrant Children, Youth, and Adult Ministries.

  • We value an energetic, multi-sensory Worship environment that evokes participation by all ages in a community experience with God.

  • We value the Centrality of Prayer as all our ministries and efforts need to be focused on prayer for any hope of success or effectiveness.

  • We value the Centrality of God’s Word as our guide for the journey of faith.

  • We value the formation of a culture of Outreach and Witness, living out the call of Christ to advance the message of salvation and to serve & support those in need and in pain.
