'Tis the Season

main image

These are exciting days in the life of Shandon!  We are seeing God’s hand at work at every turn with decisions for Christ, baptisms and some of our brightest and best being sent on mission!  Don’t miss a thing in these coming days!

As the holidays rapidly approach, there will be many more opportunities to engage in the mission of the church as we seek to care for those in need and reach those far from God.  Some of these events will be service-oriented and others will provide excellent opportunities to invite your colleagues, neighbors, family, and friends.  Please make space in your calendars for the following:

Thanksgiving

As a church that wants to impact our city, we will deliver Thanksgiving meals to less fortunate families in our community instead of hosting a Tuesday night Thanksgiving meal. If you or your Sunday School class wants to help deliver meals after church on Sunday, November 19, please email .

Christmas

December is going to be full of opportunity as we celebrate with the Singing Christmas Tree!  The dates this year are Dec 8-10, and tickets will be available beginning in November.  Invite your lost friends to experience the Gospel through the Singing Christmas Tree.  We expect crowds upward of 12,000 people so get your tickets as soon as they are available!

On the afternoon of Sunday, December 17, we will have our first “Christmas Memorial Service” for those   who have lost loved ones this year. We will spend time in remembrance and worship in what can sometimes be a difficult season for those who are walking the journey of grief.

Christmas Eve lands on Sunday this year which provides new opportunity!  We will adjust our Sunday schedule to accommodate 3 Christmas Eve services this year!  Identical services will be held at 10:00 am, 3:00 and 5:00 pm.  There will be no Sunday School that day, but there will be Kid’s Ministry for babies through age four.  What an opportunity to reach our neighbors and family with the Christmas message!  We expect this day to be even better attended than Easter, so make your plans to be part! 

New Year’s Eve

Since New Year’s Eve also lands on a Sunday, we will have one service that Sunday as well at 10:00.  Like the previous week, there will be no Sunday School but there will be Kid’s Ministry for babies through age four.

What an opportunity given to Shandon Baptist Church as we impact Columbia for Christ!  I can’t wait!

Prayer Opportunity for the Wrights

main image

Now, what do we do? 

We’ve been through months of preparation for exciting days ahead in the life of the Church and the Kingdom!  We’ve prayed individually and we’ve prayed together.  We’ve said goodbye to one faithful leader who has lead us to this point and now open our hearts to another who leads us into the bright future that God has for us!  These coming weeks are going to be filled with excitement and anticipation as we welcome the George Wright family into our church! 

Our Transition Team has worked hard in finding the heart of God and our new Pastor.  What can we as a congregation do that will make a difference?  That’s an easy one … PRAY! 

What is more important at this time than to pray for our new Pastor and his family and for the huge Sundays ahead with Palm Sunday, The Eucharist and Easter?  Transition is not only happening here, but it’s happening in the Wright household as well as they turn the chapter of ministry and begin here at Shandon. 

For a little over a year, several men have been meeting periodically on Saturday morning to pray for our church.  There is no more important time than now to spend time praying for God to do what only He can do.  

I would like to invite you, men and women, to join me for either or both of the next two Saturdays to spend about 45 minutes praying for these exciting days. 

We meet in the Worship Center at 7:00 am… that’s right… 7:00 am and will prayer walk the building, pray corporately and privately and “cover” Shandon in prayer.  We would love for you to come.  I hope to see you here at 7:00 am!  God honors the fervent prayer of His people!
