Transforming Lives with Gifts and the Gospel

main image

This month we have the opportunity to make a significant local and global impact through Samaritan's Purse. In addition to hosting their disaster relief team and serving with them to help our flood-ravaged community, we also have the opportunity to make a global impact through Operation Christmas Child. Each year Shandon packs shoe boxes with gifts and necessities for children in need around the world, and this year we want to send 2,500 boxes!

Pick up boxes and information at the Operation Christmas Child kiosk in the Gathering Place. Boxes are due October 25.

Every gift-filled shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship--transforming the lives of children and their families around the world with the good news of Jesus Christ!

Shandon's Goal: 2,500 Boxes! 

Learn more about packing a shoebox, download labels, and watch stories at the Samaritan's Purse website.

Shandon Collects/Distributes Donations in the Wake of the #SCFlood

main image

Shandon is serving as a site for the collection and distribution of necessities in the wake of the #SCFlood. 

We started collecting Tuesday and are blown away by the donations we received in just a few hours this afternoon. Our community is incredibly generous! We will continue to receive and distribute donations through the end of the week. If you know families in need or if you are one, please come by!  Remaining donations will be given to our local ministry partners to distribute.

Items most needed are bottled water, non-perishable food, and baby items (diapers/wipes/formula).

Shandon will continue to receive donations through the end of this week (Tuesday-Friday, 8am-5pm), and we will remain available through next week for people to pick up items. Drop off and pick up in the gym.

The feeling you get when you walk in the gym....I can't explain it. Made me tear up. This outpouring of love from the community is amazingly beautiful!!
