Welcome to the Grove!

My Soul is Anchored in the Lord

From the Pastor's Desk

COVID-19 Never Stopped our Praise

We thank you for taking the time out to stop by one of the oldest and largest African American Baptist Churches in the great city of Myrtle Beach, SC. Our mission is simple, to build believers for the kingdom of God. Here at Sandy Grove Missionary Baptist Church, we are a loving church, caring for those who are in need and finding the souls that are lost. We are always in need of finding new family members to join our "Nation". Acts 15:4 says “When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and the elders, and they declared all that God had done with them.” Again, thank you for stopping by and we hope to see you again.

In His Service,

Shawn L. Johnson, Ed. D.

COVID-19 never stopped the "Grove" from worshipping. We continued to worship God in Spirit and in Truth...virtually of course. Now the Lord saw fit for us to re-enter into his place of worship. On Sunday March 7, 2021 our church doors will swing open yet again to welcome in our church family and visitors. We will continue to have guidelines in place and will respect each other and ourselves by social distancing and wearing our mask. Each member and guest will still need to fill out a pre-screening form before entry. You can continue to join us virtually or in person for our Sunday Morning Worship at 10:30am or our Bible Study at 6:00pm. All services will continue to be streamed on our website and Facebook page. We cannot wait to see you and your family!

With Christian Love, 

The Grove Nation Family
