Be Part of Christmas at Shandon!

These are always exciting days as we anticipate the Christmas Season here at Shandon!  Take a look!

Singing Christmas Tree – Dec 8 at 7:00 pm/Dec 9 at 2:30/5:30 pm/Dec 10 at 2:30/5:30 pm

The Singing Christmas Tree has been voted as one of the must see Christmas events in the Midlands according to The State newspaper.  Make sure you are using this as an inviting event for those around you who need to hear the Gospel this season!  Free tickets are available here at the church or online at


Christmas Memorial Service - December 17 at 6:00 pm in the Worship Center

Christmas can be one of the greatest family times of the year but for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one, this season can be one of pain and heartache.  We want to reach out as a church to the families of those that have experienced loss and express the love that we know in Jesus Christ.  If you have lost a loved one and would like their name mentioned in this service, please send that information to Lee Hutson at


Christmas Eve Service – December 24 at 10:00 am/3:00 pm/ 5:00 pm

This year we will have 3 identical Christmas Eve services blending the worship of both of our services around the beautiful songs of the Christmas season.  We will be putting together a special choir for each of these services so if you would like to be part, please email Scott Lee at and we will schedule you for any or all of these services.  We will have one rehearsal in preparation for this choir.  If you’ve never tried a choir, now is the time! 


It seems that each year builds to the climax of the Christmas season!  We are so looking forward to sharing it with you and to the great city we’ve been called to serve.  Do you love your neighbors, coworkers, classmates and family enough to invite them to come with you to any or all of these events?  I’m confident that God is going to use this season in an incredible way for His glory!

'Tis the Season

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:


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 .


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!
