Top 5 Reasons Your Student Needs To Be At Impact Weekend

The biggest event we do in the 803 Student Ministry is just right around the corner - March 2-4. If you haven't signed your student up yet, let me give you my top 5 reasons you should do so immediately...



#5 - The Early Bird Price Ends After February 18th


Right now the cost is $75 for the entire weekend.  After February 18th the price goes up to $100.



#4 - Friday and Saturday Night Events


On Friday night we will have human foosball and jousting as well as a live dance group...there will be breakdancing involved!  On Saturday night we have the entire Plex at Irmo to ourselves!  These two nights will be tons of fun.


#3 -  Great Food


We will be having Chick-fil-A and Moe's...always crowd favorites for our students. 


#2 - Host Home Small Groups


Staying in host homes for the weekend may be the single best way for your students to make long lasting relationship. If you've ever said, "my son/daughter is having a hard time connecting" there is no better time than Impact Weekend to solve that problem.


#1 - Atheism Debate


We've done debates in the past but this is sure to be our best one yet. We have good friend of Richard Dawkins, Herb Silverman, debating for atheism and Richard Howe debating for theism. We are expecting a record crowd for this one and Impact Weekend students will get preferred seating! This is one they do not want to miss.

Church Wide Prayer Rally

I love the church!  I love the people that make up the church, I love the mission of the church and I love the purpose of the church. 2018 will be a year that God does great things in and through Shandon Baptist Church. One of the things that we want to lean into more in this new year is prayer.

Would you like to experience the power of effective praying?

Would you like to lock hearts with believers coming before the Lord on behalf of others?

Would you be willing to stretch yourself in order to experience the power of prayer?

The world around us needs someone to come alongside them to be an encourager and protector. You may not have the finances or time to help at the level that you would like but as a praying believer, we can offer so much more than just finances and time. Too often we feel that prayer is a poor offering when the need is so great, but what more could anyone ask for than to have someone storming heaven on their behalf in prayer?!

Our church will send hundreds of people around the world for the cause of Christ in 2018. We will see thousands of people pass through our doors for Worship, Bible Study, Fellowship and Community. With this opportunity, we need the covering of a praying church more than ever! Prayer is the catalyst for God to do what only He can do!

We hope in this New Year to have regular times of prayer and I want you to be part of it! This Wednesday night, February 7 at 5:55 in the Chapel we will meet to do exactly that. We will give you a couple of tools that you can use to tap into the Prayer Ministry here, as well as some tools to corporately pray together when you are here on Wednesday. I hope you’ll join us in the Chapel Wednesday night! Be on time so you don’t miss a minute!

Let’s expect God to move!

Scott Lee,   

Pastor of Worship
