WELCOME CENTER
We want you to feel at home at Shandon United Methodist.

FIND MEANING & ENJOY LIFE
Life today can be quite challenging. Today’s complex, fast-paced world can make us feel disconnected, frustrated, unsure — searching for something more. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, at Shandon you’ll find a place where you're comfortable and accepted, a place to be inspired and encouraged, and a place to make a difference and celebrate life — a place to find your way.
Meet us at Shandon this Sunday.

If you'll be visiting for the first time this weekend look for one of our “Ask Me” greeters wearing a gold Ask Me tag. They can answer questions and help you find your way around.

TRADITIONAL WORSHIP
Sundays, 8:45 and 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary
Stirring music, inspiring message and friendly atmosphere.

Traditional worship shares God’s messages that speak to our lives today. These services are filled with a diverse group of all ages and life stages. The services feature music by the Chancel Choir, Shandon’s premiere musical group; and often include the Celebration Choir, contemporary choral music; Youth Choir, teen girls and guys; Children’s Choirs; Wesley Ringers, handbell ensemble; and orchestra.

LIFELINE CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP
Sundays, 11:05 a.m. in the Dunn-Smith Center
Dynamic worship full of engaging music, friendly people and relevant messages for life today.

LifeLine is open to anyone wanting to experience a real relationship with God and others. The messages are real and uplifting, and the LifeLine Band keeps everyone engaged with joyful praise songs and dynamic big screen images. Enjoy coffee, pastries and fellowship before the service. Dress is casual – come as you are!

WORSHIP FOR CHILDREN
Children are always welcome at our worship services and are encouraged to worship with their families. During the services, a children’s bulletin and crayons are available, and children are invited upfront for an age-appropriate children’s sermon. 

Age-level nurseries are available during all worship services for infants through three-year-olds. Nurseries are staffed with trained, paid workers and parent volunteers.

At Shandon, children experience a Safe Sanctuary environment.

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

More about Shandon worship.

SPECIAL ASSISTANCE
Wheelchair access, hearing assistance devices and large-print bulletins are available at each service.

SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday school for all ages begins each Sunday at 9:45 a.m. between worship services. Sunday school is where faith comes alive and deep friendships grow. Life is not shaped in a cookie-cutter, and you'll find a variety of classes that allow you to discover God in the Bible and everyday life.

SMALL GROUPS
Shandon offers diverse Small Group Studies and has a variety of ongoing Small Group Communities that meet at various times and locations. These groups allow you to connect, explore, grow and share.
