'Tis the Season

main image

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:

Thanksgiving

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 .

Christmas

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!
