Recently, our Vision Task Group was asked to listen and name afresh God’s mission for Shady Grove. They were asked to learn our 168-year history, to notice how Shady Grove has grown with the Short Pump community, and to listen to our church community through your survey responses, your sharing with the Strategy Team at our Groovin’ at the Grove event, and through focus groups at United Methodist Men, Youth, and our fellowship, learning, and mission groups.
The team wants to say, "THANK YOU! Thank you for letting us listen to the dreams God planted in you" What an amazing mission God has given us! Our Church Council received the team’s report and said, “Amen!”
The team heard you, our church community saying,
“God’s mission for Shady Grove United Methodist Church is: Discovering and living the love of God through sharing, serving, and connecting with all peoples.”
