Upcoming Events

A Place for You

With the Covid-19 pandemic, we are working to keep our church safe and our procedures in line with recommendations from the CDC and SC DHEC. We have a Re-emerge Task Team in place that continually reviews this information, and they spent long hours developing protocols for returning in-person.

In-person worship has returned as well as most in-person Sunday school classes and in-person church and community activities. To keep everyone connected and faith nurtured, we’re having a number of online studies and activities, outdoor activities, and drive-through events for all ages.

Take a look at our upcoming events and join us! To find out more about what’s going on at Shandon, take a look in our e-newsletter and on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
