Who We Are

Shandon Women seeks to foster gospel community, engage and serve the women of Columbia, grow in discipleship and make disciples. We are passionate about God’s word and want to share His love with others. Shandon Women is dedicated to providing opportunities to learn and grow with other women via neighbor groups, weekly Bible studies, special events and mission opportunities. 

The Well is a monthly gathering for the women of Columbia, hosted by the women of Shandon. At The Well, you’ll hear raw stories of hope, life change, and the power of the Gospel in an interview format each month, as well as an intimate time of worship.

Discipleship

The idea of The Table was born through conversations about mentorship and learning from women from different ages and stages of life. Shandon’s rich history and large size have many of us in our regular places of service and worship from week to week. The Table provides women an opportunity to sit down with women outside of their Sunday School class and meet women they might not have the opportunity to meet otherwise. And because around a table and over a meal is a natural place to gather, that’s where we want to come together. 

How does it work?

  • 2 hours, 4 meetings, 6-8 women
  • For 4 months, your group will meet once a month over a meal
  • The groups will be kept at 6-8 people total to include the hostess
  • Everyone will not have the same viewpoints and won’t always agree on everything. You don’t have to convince each other, but instead listen to each other.
  • We would love for these groups to create other groups when you 4 weeks conclude. Let’s be disciples who make disciples as Jesus called us to do. 
New groups will launch this summer. Sign up now to join a group!

Better: A study of hebrews

Better: A Study of Hebrews by Jen Wilkin

Starting January 21, 2020

Facilitated by Cathy Banks

The Chapel (Upstairs) - 9:30am

Books can be purchased with cash or check at the first Bible study meeting for $15.00.

In this 10-session, verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40).

Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.

Wednesday Evenings

Childcare is available with registration on Wednesday evenings. Wednesday evening women’s Bible studies and childcare will follow the AWANA calendar.

trustworthy: a study of 1 & 2 kings

Trustworthy: A Study of 1&2 Kings by Lysa TerKeurst

Starting January 22, 2020

Facilitated by Kelly Shank

Room B103 - 6:45pm 

Books can be purchased with cash or check at the first Bible study meeting for $17.00.

When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try.

In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God.

Live Sent

Shandon Women are committed to loving our neighbors and reaching our city for God’s glory and to advance His kingdom. If you are interested in living sent within the city of Columbia, we have a few ways to connect you to local ministries that are looking for women to be the hands and feet of Jesus right here! Sign up below and someone will be back in touch with you.

heart 4 schools

Elementary students who cannot read at grade level and live in poverty are 8 times more likely to drop out of high school.  We want to share Christ’s love by supporting elementary students and their teachers.  Thirty minutes a week could make a huge impact on one child’s life.  Please fill out the form below if you are interested in making a difference at our area schools.

daybreak ministries

The mission of Daybreak Ministries is to offer practical services in a compassionate and responsive manner that will empower women, men, and families to choose life for their pre-born child. We will offer hope, healing, and the truth of God's love through: abstinence education, all stages of a crisis pregnancy, and during the aftermath of devastating decisions.

Shandon Women can be involved in the area of counseling, organizing supply drives, and hosting baby showers for mothers. Please fill out the form below if you are interested in making a difference in the life of a young mom-to-be and her baby.

ladies sewing project

The Ladies Sewing Project is a group that sews and assembles needed supplies for women across the globe. Without access to feminine hygiene supplies, women in developing countries cannot leave their homes. They are often shunned during their monthly cycle, and many girls miss 20 percent of the school year. YOU can help women reclaim control of their lives and health and learn that Jesus loves them. We meet once a month (room C121) and sew from home, too. Please contact Kristin Mixson by email at for information about how to get involved.

Dates: 

April 25 4-7 pm
