WORSHIP
Join us for three spiritually enriching Sunday services and other inspiring worship experiences.

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 and Advent/Christmas. This seasonal worship includes services such as:

Christmas Love Feast is a celebration rich in Christian community and includes sharing bread and coffee, and beautiful music filled with traditional carols. The Chancel Choir with orchestra performs this celebration.

Hanging of the Greens marks the beginning the Advent Season – commemorating the coming birth of Jesus through placing of ivy, cedar, mistletoe and holly. This service is designed to help us prepare our hearts to welcome the Christ Child. The Celebration Choir, with accompanists, performs this service.

Children's and Youth Sundays celebrate our children and teens as disciples of Christ and embrace the joy and responsibilty of nurturing them in the Christian faith. These services are lead by Shandon's children and teens.

Services of Healing, offered periodically throughout the year, affirms the ministries of spiritual healing. It is God’s work of offering persons balance, harmony and wholeness of body, mind, spirit and relationships.

Blessing of the Animals witnesses to God's and the Church's love, care and concern for creation.

Celebrating God's Creation celebrates our call to be faithful stewards of the earth that God has entrusted to us.

HOLY COMMUNION
Holy Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is celebrated monthly on a rotating basis during one or more of our worship services. Everyone is invited to the Lord’s Table to affirm Christ’s life, death and resurrection, to reenact it in our lives, and celebrate it with others. Holy Communion is also celebrated in the home upon request.

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