Changing Lives 2017

Message from our Pastor

Changing Lives, that's the message this year as we move toward Stewardship Sunday, February 12, 2017. As we prayerfully consider making financial pledges for the operating fund at our church for the upcoming fiscal year, we will be celebrating the many lives God is changing through ministry, missions, and outreach at Shady Grove UMC.

Each Sunday morning during worship someone would share with the congregation how their family was stretching their faith by increasing their financial commitment for the coming year.  It was inspiring to hear!  But it was also humbling as these stories were a reminder of our family’s rather haphazard approach to giving.
