Phasing out the Shades app

Posted by Jordan Cox

Following careful consideration, we are phasing out our mobile app effective July 18, 2017.

During the last five years, we’ve invested in emerging technologies as tools to help us tell the story of the Gospel – the greatest story ever told – in a culture that communicates in increasingly fractured ways. Film, social, and digital platforms are just a few mediums in which we’ve invested both in resources and staff personnel. Some of these means have proven more effective than others.

We always strive to communicate the Gospel, and the story of Shades, to people already connected to our community and potential guests. Though the app is going away, we are migrating all of its existing features to our website. Media content, events, and now the Bible Reading Plan are all available at

We consistently look at how to increase the usability of our website, but it was built mobile-friendly. You can visit us from your mobile web browser, and though we’re phasing out the app, you can click here to watch or listen to sermons. Click here to read our blog. Click here to get more information on all of the latest events. And the Bible Reading Plan is a feature we’ll continue to build out during the coming months, but click here for an ESV plan that we highly recommend.

Follow us on social media, and subscribe to our YouTube channel and iTunes podcast for everything that happens at Shades.

Thank you to those who used and provided feedback for our app. We are expectant about this next chapter in the life of our church!
