BAKER — Shady Grove Assembly of God’s members welcome the Rev. Mel Coon and his wife, Alicia, as their new pastors.

The Coons, who actively work with the children's ministry, began ministering to adults after moving to Florida in 1994. Alicia is an elementary music teacher and a vocal music district coordinator in Santa Rosa County.

The couple said they believe God called them to Shady Grove to build a congregation where everyone is welcome. The church has taken on the motto: "We Believe: Reaching the community — one seed at a time."

Sunday services begin with Sunday school at 9:45 a.m., followed by worship and children's church at 10:45 a.m., and another worship service at 6 p.m. The Wednesday Family Night service is at 7 p.m.

The church is at 1189 Shady Grove Road, Baker.
