The Treasure Challenge

Tell us about your experience!

The Grove’s mission is encouraging people to discover true treasure in Jesus.

From February 24 to March 23 The Grove is taking part in the Treasure Challenge, using $10 to encourage someone outside of The Grove. You can do this individually or combine your $10 with other Grovers to point someone to Jesus.

Here are some ideas to get you started:


Add to your tip for a generous bonus for your server along with a note or comment telling them how their service reminds you of the example of Jesus.


Buy a well-chosen book (that you’ve read) for someone and tell them something like, “This book has meant a lot/been helpful to me and I thought you’d enjoy it. I’d love to know what you think.”

Coffee Shop

Prepay for people who come after you and then sit and anonymously watch people’s reactions to your generosity.


Convert your bill to quarters and pay for people’s loads until the money runs out.  Talk to folks while the laundry is going.


Buy a pie or make cookies and take them to someone new to the neighborhood or someone who has lived there since George Brett played for the Royals. Or pool your money with others and invite neighbors over for a meal. Or go out to eat if cooking is not a way for you to love your neighbor :)

If you've invested your $10 to encourage someone please share you story below:
