Celebrating A Successful NIGHT TO SHINE


Many of you know that Shandon hosted our first Night to Shine prom this past Friday, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. We were one of 537 churches worldwide to host this phenomenal event for teens and adults with special needs—and it was nothing short of spectacular!

Shandon member Amanda Hawkins served as Event Coordinator, and did a stellar job of managing logistics for 79 honored guests, more than 300 volunteers, and 18 local sponsors and vendors. Here’s a special note from Amanda to everyone who played a part:

I want to extend a HUGE thank you for all of the hard work you put into Night to Shine this year! Friday was extremely successful. We have received several emails and responses from families of our guests letting us know how thankful they are and how above and beyond they felt we went. This could not have been accomplished without you. We appreciate each and every one of you for the efforts you put forth. THANK YOU—YOU ROCK! We hope you will join us again next year!

Shandon’s Night to Shine event received national recognition this week through a quote submitted by a parent who attended with their daughter. Check out these features published by CBS Sports and the Tim Tebow Foundation.

God showed up in a big way on Friday and blessed all who attended with a beautiful, magical night that we’ll never forget. We can’t wait for next year!

It’s time to MOVE!


5 Ways to Move Forward after Missions Kickoff

 What does the “receiving team” do after kickoff in a football game?  They MOVE the ball downfield, striving for a touchdown and hoping for a win.  What does Shandon Baptist Church do after Missions Kickoff?  We MOVE.  Below are 5 concrete ways you can be instrumental in Missions at Shandon:


  1. GO to the MOVE missions conference.  I went last year, and it was awesome!  This year, I want to take at least 20 members who are interested in missional leadership.  You can register here.
  2. GO on a Mission Trip.  Start the process now by submitting an interest form here.  Let’s send 350 Shandon members in 2018!
  3. GO to our local schools.  It would be a huge win if, as a result of this post, a Sunday School class at Shandon adopted a local school as a mission partner.  You can sign up as an individual or a class to take meals, practice sight words, or meet other needs by emailing or talking with Brenda in the Gathering Place this Sunday.
  4. GIVE to the Pete Richards Mission Scholarship Fund.  We are hoping to send 350 church members on the mission field this year, many who are youth or college students.  If you would like to help them, you can designate your gift by writing “Pete Richards Mission Fund” on the memo of your check.
  5. PRAY for our missionaries.  Specifically, I’d love to see every slot in our church prayer room filled.  We keep missionary prayer requests updated in the prayer room.  Sign up for a slot by emailing with your top three time preferences. 


Thank you for being a part of what God is doing!
