Don't Miss Summer Night of Worship!

Summer Night of Worship: what an exclamation point on a fantastic summer!  

When we began what the choir and orchestra have come to call "S.N.O.W." (I think the acronym is a mental relief from the humidity of August in Columbia!) in 2010, it was designed as an end of summer project for the choir and orchestra as well as a night of worship for our church family.  Over the years it has developed into a huge event and we want to make sure that you have it on your calendar!  It will be a variety of music ranging from Inspiration to Southern Gospel to Modern and you don’t want to miss it!

Join us for this year's Summer Night of Worship this coming Sunday night, August 23 at 6:30 in the worship center. 

Here’s what you can expect: 

  • 200 singers and 50 piece orchestra made up of the choirs from FBC Matthews NC, FBC Simpsonville SC and the Worship Choir and Orchestra from Shandon.  
  • Powerful stories of God's amazing grace in the lives of a couple of Shandon folks – Chris Mercer who has been on a journey of healing from a brain tumor and Jason Easter who has been delivered from addiction and is currently the director of Columbia Teen Challenge
  • Ice Cream for the whole family in the gym to follow!
  • This is a free event--no tickets or reservations (except for childcare) needed.

Childcare is available for infants through 4 year olds by reservation. Take care of those reservations online, if you need them. 

God is doing a great thing in the Worship Arts Ministry!  You will be blessed, encouraged and will sense God’s presence this Sunday night.  

Help us spread the word by inviting friends--send them a link to this post so they'll have all the details.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Christmas in July

This year marks the 25th anniversary of The Singing Christmas Tree at Shandon!

Over those years we have seen nearly 250,000 people experience the story and celebration of Christmas with us.  In an effort to make this year's anniversary extra special, I began to see what it would take to add another tree. (Call me crazy...) 

As I began to shake the bushes, so to speak, we were generously given not one, but TWO trees by a church in Florida!  We're incredibly grateful for their gift, but now begins the work of trying to make this wonderful gift work for our 25th Anniversary Celebration. 

Here's where YOU come in...

Do you sing? 

I'm recruiting 80 more people to sing in "The Tree" this year, which will take us to over 200 singers.  We roll the music for this year's program on August 26, and I'd love for you to be a part!  If you're interested in singing in The Singing Christmas Tree this year, let me hear from you soon: email me at  or call me at (803) 782-1300.

Are you good with tools?

This Saturday, July 11 beginning at 9am, we will take these extra trees out of storage and set them up to examine their condition.  If you can lend your assistance for any length of time, meet me at 1703 Atlas Road.  You bring your gloves; we'll provide water.  Please let me know if you plan to assist (again,  or 782-1300).  

Once we've done the initial test of the trees this Saturday, there remains a lot of work to prepare these two new trees, including building the panels of greenery and putting together the lighting.  If you are available during the day beginning in the late summer and would like to help with this, please email our Worship Arts assistant Angela Garrett at with your availability.


The Tree has been an iconic representation of the ministry of Shandon Baptist Church for 25 years.  I hope you’ll look at this year as a great opportunity to share the gospel message as you begin to pray about how you can invite people to join us for Christmas at Shandon. 

Pray with us as we prepare, and I hope you’ll get involved!

Merry Christmas (in July)!
