LET'S FIND YOU A LIFE GROUP!
At Cedar Grove we believe real LIFE change and lasting growth happens best in community. Transformation takes place! God never intended for us to do life alone. Perhaps that's why He put each one of us in a family to learn, grow and mature. We believe the same applies to our spiritual growth. We invite you to join us on the journey.

What Is Going On Here
So much that you won’t find it all on this page, but we’ve tried to sum it all up here - just for you!
Cedar Grove is a multi-generational, intercultural congregation with a rich history. Since 1960, this family of God has sought to fulfill the desire of our Father's heart by seeking to reach and love the people of Surrey. We are committed to helping our community grow in their love for God, their love for each other, and their love for those who have yet to come to know Him!
This is How We Do It
Messages Let’s get real … no this is not our slogan or motto … at least not officially, but it does basically describe how our Sunday messages are delivered. God has blessed us with seven pastors who present God’s word to us in a way that is authentic and applicable to us every day! If you haven’t already, you will soon discover the “redemptive power of God and the Bible!” “This is not a normal book - It’s a supernatural book!” says Lead Pastor Kevin Cavanaugh. Service times are 9:00 and 11:00 am.
Worship We encourage our church family to worship and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ every day and in everything they do. Worship is meant to be a part of every aspect of our lives in Christ, whether we are at work, play, school, or church. We prayerfully prepare each week to lead worship in such a way that, by God's anointing, Sunday service will become a springboard into a week of worship for everyone who attends! If you missed last Sunday or can't remember the name of the song you're singing check out Rico’s Playlist.

Okay … we tried but this just does not come close to summing it all up! Check out our website some more and come on Sunday at 9:00 or 11:00 am. See you soon!
His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into His own family ... through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:5 NLT
