Why Meet Midweek?

Have you ever wondered how the truths of the Bible actually connect to your daily life? Here at Shades, we believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ changes everything.

It changes the way we raise our children, the way we handle our finances, the way we interact with cultural issues, and more.

I Come on Sundays. Isn’t This Just A Repeat?

We build on Sundays by helping you connect the dots between what Jesus has done and the joys and difficulties of everyday life.

What If I’m New to Shades or Don’t Go To Church?

We get it. It’s hard going to an unfamiliar place. You can learn more about Shades and let us know you're coming by visiting the "Plan Your Visit" page.

Looking For Community?

Community is more than showing up on Sunday, or coming to a few events; It's to know and be known by others in the midst of life's joys and difficulties.
