Shady Grove UMC - Short Pump


Shady Grove United Methodist Church welcomes, teaches and helps all people to know and grow in Christ through stewardship, worship, education and evangelism.
We are a church family reaching out to encourage all people on their faith journey.   With an attitude of worship and a spirit of grace, we serve others in the name of Christ.


In a time when our community could have gotten the message that our church is not in ministry with all people, the Church Council felt called to be clear that the people of Shady Grove United Methodist Church, from conservative to moderate to progressive, are called to joyfully serve together as Christ to our entire Short Pump community and beyond. READ MORE

At SGUMC we are using church management software called Realm. The button on this page entitled "Realm. Let's Get Connected" will take you to the sign in page for current Realm users. We have also created a webpage with information for YOU to get started. LEARN MORE
