About us

Shades Mountain Independent Church is a non-denominational, elder-led church located in the Bluff Park neighborhood of Hoover, Alabama. We are a multi-generational congregation committed to loving God with all we are, loving our neighbors with gospel intentionality, and growing together in love through Christ-centered community. We value God-exalting worship, verse-by-verse exposition of the Bible, Scripture-based prayer, life-on-life discipleship, global missions, every member a minister, and every member a missionary in our community.
