Next Chapter


Projected Pastor Appointment

Rev. Chris McLain's first Sunday at Shady Grove will be July 2! On this day we will worship in the sanctuary at 8:15 and 9:30 am.  At 11:00 am we will have combined worship in the fellowship hall with music led by both the sanctuary choir and Testify praise band. 


During the next 90 days as our congregation prepares to say goodbye to Rev. Adkins, welcome a new Senior Pastor, and break ground on a building expansion, help us cover our church in prayer. Please consider this PRAISE prayer.  Use it as a reminder to pray daily for our church. Posters of the prayer are also being placed in classrooms throughout the church so that we may pray together whenever we gather for meetings, Bible study, and Sunday school.
