"The Transition Team enthusiastically and unanimously recommends George Wright as Shandon's next pastor."

This past Sunday at the conclusion of both services, Mark Hood announced the Transition Team's recommendation for Shandon's next senior pastor: George Wright. 

Pastor Lincoln's final Sunday in the pulpit will be Sunday, March 26. A reception for him and Patty will be in the Gathering Place that afternoon from 3-6pm.

We are putting together a bound book of notes and letters from the congregation. To include your personal note to the Lincolns, please use the special paper provided in Sunday School classes, the Gathering Place, and at the reception. Return your notes (on the provided paper) to the designated box in the Gathering Place no later than March 26 at 6pm.

Happy Birthday, Pastor Lincoln!

main image

Pastor Lincoln's birthday is Saturday, February 25!


We had a blast celebrating his birthday in this week's All Staff Meeting! We started off with "Dick Lincoln Trivia" (test your Dick Lincoln knowledge below!) and concluded with  red velvet birthday cake (one of his favs). And yes...that is Frank Shimkus dressed as you-know-who.


In between we celebrated some cool things God has been doing in and through Shandon Baptist Church, got a sneak preview of this Sunday's sermon "The Monster under the Bed" (it's going to be good!), and prayed over the upcoming Student Ministry Impact Weekend. 

Want to wish Pastor Lincoln Happy Birthday, Dick Lincoln-style?


1.  Download printable bowtie & glasses.  Customize, cut out, and tape to a popsicle stick .


2. Take a selfie or a picture of your family with your dapper Dick Lincoln props and post to social media using #happybirthdaypastorlincoln. Tag @shandonbaptist and/or @dicklincoln in your post/tweet.
