Greetings in the name of Jesus!
Hello, everyone. I welcome you to the Shady Grove Baptist Church of Orange, Virginia website. As you tour this site, you will experience some of the many treasured moments that make up the Shady Grove ministry. Our church renders various ministerial services for Orange, Spotsylvania, Louisa and Madison counties. We are a multi-cultural congregation with various programs to reach the youth and adult population. We are thankful for God's presence in the ministry as His Spirit directs us to proclaim the Gospel, to manage the mission and consistently instruct the principles and doctrines of the scripture for the perfecting of believers. Our goal is the teach and preach the delivering story of the Jesus Christ to the diverse people of all genders and races in order that a personal choice to be saved is desired, baptism is acquired, and the willingness to actively become a member of the body of Christ is a lifestyle.
As pastor of this fellowship, I am elated to be blessed with a congregation and community that aspires me to demonstrate Christian ethics in order that the people of God will adhere to the Word through Bible studies, sermons, and spiritual counsel. We have a staff of inspiring ministers; some who have been previous pastors dedicated men and women of God. I am thankful for their input and teamwork to take on roles that will motivate change and participation in the church ministry. Along with these parishioners, our congregation has many talented, creative and God-fearing worshipers who often express their love for the Lord through dynamic testimonies and praises. We are a progressive rural church striving to meet the challenges of the 21st century as a place of salvation liberating lives and finding the sufficient power of grace and mercy as God encamps us and Spirit dwell in us to do a "good work."
After touring our website, I hope that someday you will find the time to attend one of our services. I welcome you to events scheduled throughout the calendar year. Should you seek a place of worship and don't have a regular church home, prayerfully consider the Shady Grove Baptist Church. There is a place for you here.
Thank you for your online visit, and I hope to see you soon. May God bless us all now and forever.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Joseph A. Moore
