The Grove in Riverside, CA was a great site–we just finished up this past weekend and it was a wonderful week!  This church did something very unique — they created an “Experience” for their children’s ministry during the week.  Lots of kids were able to walk through an interactive display showing what life is like in Africa — and it was all geared towards children, it was great!

Marilee Pierce Dunker came to speak (Bob Pierce’s daughter, founder of World Vision) — it was an honor to listen to her speak and share her heart for suffering children.

The Grove is heavily involved in Uganda and have taken several trips to the community of Aber where World Vision is working (northern area in Uganda).  Their heart for this area is evident, and it was amazing to see a large congregation focused on the same purpose — to help those who are suffering.  Thank you to everyone involved in planning for the event!

If you attended the Experience at The Grove please leave a comment and let us know what you thought of the week.
