OUR WEEKLY WORSHIP PLAYLIST

WHO WE ARE

Shady Grove Presbyterian Church is a loving and warm church community of people of all ages who are committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We seek to serve the diverse community of Montgomery County, everyone from our elected leaders to newly-arrived non-English speaking neighbors. Attendance on Sundays averages around 250 and includes younger and older families, children and youth, college students, singles, and empty nesters.

WHY WE'RE HERE

Our goal is to be a church community where people seeking to serve Jesus Christ can grow in their personal walk with Him and in their ability to serve His Kingdom in our area and around the world. We have a blended worship service that mixes contemporary Scripture songs and praise choruses with the traditional hymns. Our doctrine emphasizes the sovereignty of God in all things, especially salvation. We ascribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith and we are a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

Jólabókaflóðið — Christmas Book Flood

Jólabókaflóðið — Christmas Book Flood

Sun, Dec 23

You are invited to join us as we, once again, participate in an Icelandic tradition.  Iceland publishes more books per capita than any other country and new books are typically published only during the Christmas season--the frenzy is called Jólabókaflóðið, which means Christmas Book Flood.  If you wish to participate, bring in a wrapped book (new or very gently used), with a signed card describing why you recommend the book, and place it in the basket in the narthex.  Following the Sunday Worship service on 12/23 or Christmas Eve Worship service, whichever you attend, take a wrapped book home and enjoy.  In order for the logistics to work properly, please ensure that your gifted book is added to the basket at least 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the Sunday Worship service on 12/23 and do not take a book until after the service.  You might just be so thrilled with your new book that you participate in another tradition--Icelanders exchange gifts on Christmas Eve and most folks stay up all night reading one of their new books--enjoyed with some delicious chocolate.   See Veronica Kerr if you have any questions.  Merry Christmas!!
