2020-03-18 Letter From Your Pastor

Posted by Shady Grove Baptist Church on March 30, 2020 at 3:20 PM


Shady Grove Baptist Church in Cherryville, North Carolina

is moving all services to an online experience only.



All on-campus meetings are canceled until further notice as we take steps to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus).



The following points were taken into prayerful consideration in making this decision.



  • Safety and health are our primary concern for you and your family.
  • We have prayed over this decision with open hearts, considering all pertinent information. This was not a decision made in fear, rather in wisdom based on factual data.
  • The office staff and Pastor will continue to operate on a normal schedule and will be available to you via call, text, and email. We will continue to check on those in the hospitals and nursing homes by phone as they have strict “no visit” restrictions.



What we ask of you:



  • Continue to pray! We urge you and your family to earnestly pray for our community and our nation during this trying time. Pray for wisdom to be granted to the people on the front lines in healthcare and in government who are making decisions that impact us all.
  • Stay encouraged! God remains in control of this entire situation and we can rest in the comfort of knowing that our Lord is sovereign. We are not called to panic, but to pray!
  • Continue to participate! Services are not canceled; they will simply be online. We encourage you and your family to worship with us in your own home through singing, preaching, and an opportunity to give your tithes and offerings. If you do not have internet access and would like to watch the sermon, please contact the church to have a DVD/audio CD sent to you.
