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. 
In addition to weekly online opportunities for Sunday School, G3, music and drama rehearsals, we have special events such as game nights, Drive In Spooktacular, mission work at Shalom Farms, and Baby Shower for Jesus. The children's ministry has their own FB page Treehouse at the Grove for keeping parents connected. Shady Grove UMC Preschool offers weekday programming for children age 1-pre-kindergarten.
