Connecting with God, the Bible and other Christians is an important part of being a faithful follower of Jesus, also called being a disciple. At Shady Grove we offer many opportunities for all ages to get plugged in so that you make the connection to knowing and growing through Christ.
For adults we offer Sunday school, and Connection Groups (sermon and scripture-based discussion groups).  During Bistro season from September to November and January-April we offer Wednesday night classes.  There are also many opportunities to serve in the areas of Music and Arts, Missions, Hospitality and Evangelism, Care Ministries, JOY@SGUMC (Senior Adult Ministry), or United Methodist Men.
Middle school and high school students may participate in Youth Ministry, Sunday school, confirmation class, and Music and Arts. 
We offer Sunday school, COW (Children's Own Worship), G-3 (for 3rd-5th graders), Music and Arts, Wednesday night programming (Sprouts, Little Hands, Bible Zone) and infant/toddler nursery care.  Shady Grove UMC Preschool offers weekday programming for children age 1-pre-kindergarten.
