A Little About Our Church. . .
Welcome to the official website of the Shady Grove Baptist Church, located on Shady Grove Rd in Murphy, NC where the Reverend Gerald Derreberry is our pastor. We are known in the community as one of the friendliest churches around. Everyone is welcome.
As a church, we are committed to our Savior, Jesus Christ, and here at Shady Grove, we base our teaching upon God's revealed word, the Bible. It is our desire that people come to place their trust in Christ to forgive and lead them, and that they grow in their relationship with Him and the local church provides the greatest avenue for encouragement and strength, as well as providing for much needed direction and guidance in these challenging days we live. The church is a wonderful oasis of peace in the midst of the trials and hardships that life offers. Fellowship is necessary for the spiritual health of a Christian.
Ours doors are open. We are always happy to meet new people - ALL are Welcome!
Vacation Bible School will be held on July 29-30-31. 6-8 pm nightly. The theme will be Big Fish Bay. Big Fish Bay is a nautical theme where kids explore an exciting bay, fish off the pier, and venture out to sea, complete with a lighthouse, tall ships, and coastal animals. During lesson time, kids will embark on a journey into the life of Jonah. They’ll encounter God’s mercy and see how His compassionate heart was most fully expressed in Jesus’ death and resurrection. Seeing God’s mercy, sharing God’s mercy—kids will be “Hooked on God’s Mercy."
Update on Church Services
Beginning July 1, Shady Grove Baptist Church of Murphy will resume our regular schedule of services: Sunday School classes at 10:00 am, congregational singing and worship service at 11:00 am. Evening services will be held at 6:30 pm on Sunday and on Wednesday. The following safety measures will be in place to ensure the health and safety of our members and guests: Masks will be provided for those who want one. You are encouraged to wear a mask, but it will not be required. We will continue to practice “social seating” as much as is possible. If you do not feel well, please do not come. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
How To Become A Christian
It’s as simple as A-B-C!
A - Admit That You Are A Sinner
For all have sinned and come
short of the glory of God,
B - Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ
and thou shalt be saved...
C - Confess Jesus As Your Lord
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
The Sinner's Prayer:
I realize that I have sinned. I ask you to forgive me of my sins. I believe that you died for me on Calvary. I ask you to come into my heart and save me. I promise to live for you from this day forward. Thank you for saving me. Amen
