About

When you walk in the doors of Fellowship, you should expect to be greeted with a friendly face that will answer any questions that you might have about the church. We have a heart for the community of Shelbyville and its surrounding towns and a heart for studying the Word God gave us. We are a discipleship community. This means that we want to assist others in their walk with the Lord, guiding them step by step to grow closer to God.

We want to serve people from all walks of life. Whether you have never been to church before or have gone your whole life, have young children or no children, Fellowship is a place where you can learn about God in a comfortable environment. We hope to see you soon.

When you are a member of a church, you are a member of a family and our family celebrates all parts of life together. Below is our churches membership covenant, this is what we as a church believe a church is supposed to be and what we expect of our members.
