Dear Church Family,
Please read below for this week's announcements from Shady Grove:
-Don’t forget that we spring forward this Sunday!
-Join Shady Grove Church on March 27th from 2:00-3:30pm for a Walk-Through Easter Egg Hunt! This free, family-oriented event will be hosted on the church property at 1675 Harold Patterson Rd in Dandridge. To keep our event as safe as possible, individual families will walk together around the church property to play games and hunt eggs. Bring your Easter Egg baskets and your family members and come have fun with us!
In the case of rain, the event will be moved to April 3rd. Follow us on our King's Kidz or this event page for updates.
-A memorial service will be held for Donald Batson in the Fellowship Hall at Shady Grove on Sunday, March 21st at 3pm. Please bring photographs if you have them and be prepared to share stories of a life well-lived. There is space to keep a safe distance, but please wear masks for everyone’s health.
-We are continuing to collect eggs and candy for our Easter Egg Hunt through March 21st. Please read below for Easter Egg Hunt details. You can bring the eggs, preferably stuffed, with you to church on Sunday or drop them off during the week. Please make sure the candy is peanut free. Call Ashley at the church if you have any questions.
If you would like to volunteer to help at the Easter Egg Hunt, please let Ashley know.

When we give to a specific emergency (tornado, flood, hurricane, etc.), 100% of our money goes directly to that emergency. Please give with a generous heart.
