Pastor Michael S. Yarbrough
At Shady Grove , we believe that God is involved in our everyday lives. In return, we are so grateful for his total commitment to us. This is why we worship—to acknowledge and praise God as the source and end of our being. Also, to encourage one another to walk circumspectly in the word, and to experience the joy and beauty of the Holy Spirit’s presence in our services. Worship is an opportunity to experience God. No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome to Shady Grove. We invite you to join us for any of our worship services.
Couples who wish to be married at Shady Grove should make their plans as far in advance as possible. Please contact the church office or email as soon as you have chosen the date for your wedding.
Get your wedding license no more than 30 days prior to the wedding. Full details are available from the pastor. Also, at least one meeting with the pastor is required. The pastor will meet with you to talk about marriage and help plan the ceremony.
The open group concept of our Sunday School is foundational to a successful Bible study ministry in our church. As a Bible-based church, we must continue to keep our collective focus on reaching those who are not part of our church, or God’s Kingdom. One part of being Open Group is the curriculum used by our classes or groups. The best curriculum is that which provides for a Bible study experience each Sunday that is a stand-alone lesson. Your teachers may be teaching from a “quarterly” format, but the idea is that on any given Sunday, someone could walk in off the street, step into any of our classes and understand the lesson.
