The members of Shady Grove Baptist Church sponsor several community ministries.
One of those ministries is Meals & More Ministry: delivering meals to shut-ins. If you would like to help with this ministry, please contact Rod Gillott at 256-612-3077.
The church has a food pantry the provides non-perishable food and canned items like tuna, peanut butter, dried beans, etc., for those who need it. For its Clothes Closet, donations of clean, gently-used clothes, shoes, coats and other items would be appreciated. At the Sav-A-Life Pregnancy Resource Center, donations of blankets, diapers, wipes, formula, bottles and clothing for newborn to age 3 would be greatly appreciated.
The church also collects and donates nursing supplies for Danville schools. Donations of bandages, finger splints and other items are appreciated.
Community needs the church serves includes wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and other items. For its Homeless Outreach the church seeks non-perishable food, warm socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, wipes and other items. There is a box in the church foyer by the glass doors to place these items in, and Carden Roden will be handing these items out from her car in the Birmingham area.
