From Our Pastor

Affectionately and Respectfully known as Paster Bob

Pastor's PhotoWelcome to our Website at Shady Grove United Methodist Church in Irmo/Dutch Fork South Carolina.  We are glad you are here and hope you will spend some time getting to know us, first through our website and then even more importantly in person for worship, Sunday School, United Methodist Youth Fellowship, United Methodist Women, United Methodist Men and the many more ministry and mission’s opportunities.  You may find additional information about our staff, leaders and me on the website.

It is an exciting time to be living and serving in the community of Dutch Fork.  Once a rural community covered in farmland and forest, it is now a thriving and growing community filled with families of all ages.  We are a small church with a big heart that continues to grow and offer ministries that one might only find at a large church (Gymnasium, Large Choir, Children/Youth Programs, etc.)

Again, welcome to Shady Grove United Methodist Church!  We invite you to come and share in the hope, love and ministries of Jesus Christ our Lord.  After visiting our website, “Come and See” what God is doing in our church and our community.  Join us as fellow travelers down the road of Christian discipleship, journeying into a life of faith, seeking God’s Will, following Christ and experiencing the All and Mighty power of the Holy Spirit.

With the Love of Christ,
Pastor Robert M. Vincent
Shady Grove United Methodist Church
