This Week in Worship

"Serving, We Lead: Turning Corners"

Scripture: Ephesians 2: 11-22

When have you been an outsider? An outsider with God? An outsider with others? What corner do we turn to be brought from the outside, in? This week, servant-leaders, let’s explore sharing the fellowship we discover in Jesus.

Last But Not Least

2018 Church Goals

A connected church, a serving church, a church where we grow together in Christ. This is the direction the Church Council, in dialogue with the ministry areas of the church, hears God calling all of us together as Shady Grove United Methodist Church to move toward in this ministry year. So, let's all join together in these church-wide goals.
  1. Getting connected: Our goal is to have 50% of our membership sign up with Realm. (Send a request today to realm@shadygroveumc.net)
  2. Serving inter-generationally: Here we build on a strength by embracing a congregation-wide mission effort through education and the joining of our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
  3. Growing together in Christ: Our goal is to increase the number of members participating in a small group at SGUMC by 20%. So, let's get connected; let's get serving; let's get growing together in Christ.
"God who began a good work in us will be faithful to complete it." ~ Philippians 1:6
