The Biography of God

Do you love to read a good biography or autobiography? For many people, these are their favorite types of books to read. Have you ever thought of the Bible this way?

Through reading His Word, it’s possible to know God, who is both invisible and wholly different from us. As your comprehension of who He is and how He operates in the world increases, you’ll discover how to listen so you can hear Him speak and how to recognize His will enacted in the circumstances of your life. You’ll have a deeper understanding of the biblical God, experience more fulfilling interaction with Him, and learn what it means to be His friend.

The Cove Welcomes Shaun Groves

On Saturday, May 21, we are excited to welcome singer-songwriter Shaun Groves for An Evening at The Cove!

His 2001 debut “Invitation to Eavesdrop” scored five songs on the charts and a number of Dove Award nominations, including New Artist and Song of the Year for “Welcome Home.” He was soon touring coast-to-coast and around the world with Bebo Norman, Jars of Clay and Michael W. Smith.

Since then, Shaun has traveled with the Christian child development organization Compassion International. He has invested himself entirely in spreading a new message: salvation is not just about being “saved from” something, as he’d learned as a child. It is about being “saved for” something. Very true.

We hope you’ll join us for this special time with Shaun. We know your heart will be touched.

Here’s a video of a performance of his hit song “Welcome Home” on Faith Café.


Tickets for this event are $50 and include dinner. Concert-only tickets are available for $28, and overnight lodging is also available. To register, click here.
