Shandon was recently featured in the Knox County Association of Baptists August newsletter for assistance provided by our mission team to Knoxville.
Annually Shandon provides at least one U.S. mission trip where construction and other ministry opportunities are available to Shandon members. For the second year in a row Shandon sent a mission team to partner with the Knox County Baptist Association in Knoxville, TN as a part of their Project Knox 316 program.
During April 26-May 2, 25 adults (primarily from the 55+ Ministry) made the trip this year. While three of our team members cooked supper for children involved in an after school program at Western Heights Baptist Center, several others on the team provided help with a food pantry, clothing closet, and an after school program for elementary and middle school students. Other team members worked at two local churches doing significant repair projects which the churches could not afford to have done.
This mission trip and project was a great way to partner with other churches to lend resources and assistance for Kingdom impact!
