We are a group of college students and graduated leaders who follow Jesus. We are far from perfect, but we are passionate about the Gospel. We believe that His love and grace are available to all everyone, and we believe that this is good news worth sharing! Each week we study God's word together across Columbia in community groups, worship together on Thursday Nights in the heart of USC and at Columbia College. On Sunday mornings we come together as one Shandon Baptist Church on Sunday mornings at 9am for Leadership Development and 10:30am for Modern Service.

We are excited to know you!

Visit us in 5 Points at 2121 Devine St. or, when you come to one of our gatherings, stop by our info table so that we can meet you and hear your story.
