…classic, iconic, organized, beautiful
…lots of individual trees, growing together for a purpose

  • The Gardener’s job: Grow healthy trees.
  • The Gardener’s goal: A fruitful grove.

CITRUS GROVE CHURCH has a mission for Wesley Chapel, FL:
Be a grove where Jesus makes hearts healthier & lives more fruitful.

How healthy is your heart? How are you handling life’s ups and downs?
Are you as fruitful as God expects…or as you expect of yourself?
God has incredibly high standards for your heart and your productivity.
He also has custom tools that get you healthier and more fruitful.

At Citrus Grove Church, God himself does the gardening in four ways:


In weekly worship God’s words and two mysterious sacraments fill you up with grace we crave


Gain deeper and broader Christian maturity via personal devotions and Grove Groups


Appreciate more fully the gifts God’s given you (contentment inside) and find ways to benefit others (generosity outside)


Improve how you talk about your reasons for hope. Then use that training in your circles and on church-organized outings

You weren’t made to grow alone. Be part of Citrus Grove Church.
Get healthier. Live fresher. Handle everything better with Jesus.
