The Grove

The Hepler’s Church of God Grove is an outdoor worship and fellowship area on an old camp meeting ground.

Established in the late 1840s as a camp meeting ministry, the grove has hosted countless revival and worship services for over 150 years. Each summer in June for four days, we join together to hear special music from local (and sometimes not so local) musicians. We also hear from pastors, teachers and evangelists who bring a message each night. There is also food served after the services where you can get your hotdogs, ice cream and maybe even a hot bologna sandwich.

In 2020, even in the midst of a pandemic, the Hepler’s Church replaced what was formerly a boarding house used in the summer to host guests who were visiting for the once two weeks of services, was in dire need of replacement. The congregation voted to tear down the old boarding house and replace it with a new community fellowship hall to host events such as services or banquet dinners. The new building, has a 70’ x 30’ open hall and a 20’ x 20’ kitchen.

Consider Joining us for our 2021 Grove Services from June 27- 30, 2021 at 7PM as we focus on the theme of being “All In” for Jesus.
