Dear Church Family,
Please read below for this week's announcements from Shady Grove:
- We will be hosting an Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday, February 17th, at 6pm. This service will be both in person and live streamed. We hope you are able to attend.

-Holston Home Update: Thank you for generously supporting the children at Holston Home. We collected $915 to help restore broken lives.
-Missions: We are collecting Hygiene Kits for UMCOR, the United Methodist Committee on Relief, during February. These kits are given out during disasters such as hurricanes and floods. By replacing stock now, we are helping UMCOR be ready when the next disaster strikes. Due to Covid restrictions, you may “purchase” a kit by donating $15.00 (includes $2 for toothpaste and shipping) or you may bring the items plus $2 to the church in a grocery bag (see list below.) Last year, we supplied 108 kits. Let’s see if we can do it again!
God bless each of you for your faithful care of those in need.
