Worship At Shandon

Spiritually enriching and meaningful worship experiences

In today’s complex world, we all need a centering place where we can explore and grow in our faith, connect with others and make a difference. Worship is the cornerstone of the Christian community and allows us to grow closer to God and enrich our lives in His Word.

With the pandemic, we are slowly and safely returning in-person. In-person worship has returned with limited attendance through reservations. We have two in-person services: 8:45 a.m. Traditional and 11:05 a.m. LifeLine Contemporary. Both services are also live streamed.

worshiping from home

Worship from Home

We love gathering in-person for worship – seeing all the faces and smiles and enjoying the chats and conversations. But this isn’t always possible. We hope that when you’re not able to worship with us here at Shandon that you’ll join us for one of our online services. Church is not a building. It’s everyone connecting together to advance God’s Kingdom. And we hope that our Worship from Home live-stream services will offer you meaningful worship experiences and connect you closer to God. Both worship services feature uplifting messages, inspiring music and encouraging, age-appropriate children’s messages.

Traditional Live-stream Worship: Sundays, 8:45 a.m.
LifeLine Live-stream Worship: Sundays, 11:05 a.m.

The services are recorded and remain available on our YouTube channel to watch after they air.

WATCH WORSHIP SERVICES

Shandon places a strong emphasis on fostering children in Christian faith. Children are always welcome and encouraged to worship with their families at all of our worship services. We recognize the developmental needs of children vary. Age-level nurseries are provided during all Sunday morning worship services for infants-age 3, and children’s Bibles, crayons, and activity books are available at entrances to worship spaces to assist parents in engaging children during worship.

We also have a special children’s time during worship services. Children ages 3 and older are invited up front for an age-appropriate Children’s Message. Following the Children’s Message, children may return to their seats and worship with their families. Our nursery is also open for children ages 4 and 5 after the Children’s Message. Parents are welcome to leave worship and take their children to the nursery in the DuBose Building, room 105 if they choose.

Nurseries are staffed with trained, paid workers and parent volunteers. At Shandon, children experience a Safe Sanctuary environment.

In addition to our regular Sunday morning services, Shandon also celebrates special days and church seasons through worship such as Lent/Easter, Advent/Christmas, Children’s and Youth Sundays, Services of Healing, Blessing of the Animals, and Celebrating God’s Creation.

Holy Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is celebrated the first Sunday of each month in all three of our worship services and is celebrated in the home upon request. Everyone is invited to the Lord’s Table to affirm Christ’s life, death and resurrection, to reenact them in our lives.

Wheelchair access is available at each service. Wheelchair access to the Sanctuary is located at the Sanctuary east entrance near the parking lot. All entrances to the Dunn-Smith Center are wheelchair accessible, and all campus buildings are wheelchair accessible through the covered center walkways that connect the four buildings.
