Focusing on faith, fellowship and service
The world today for teens is more complex than ever before, and navigating the way and discovering your place can, at times, be challenging. At Shandon, we’ll help you know God and how your journey with Him can equip and empower you for life’s exciting opportunities and difficult challenges.
In SMY you’ll experience engaging studies and events as well as fun activities where you can grow in your faith, build real friendships and make a difference through service. So if you’re a 7th-12th grader interested in hanging out in a Christian environment with an awesome group of teens and demonstrating faith, not just talking about it, then you belong in SMY. Shandon’s teens come from a variety of neighborhoods and schools, have a wide range of interests, and are at different stages on their faith journeys.
