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.
Shandon Women is excited to launch Flourish, a mentorship opportunity for women of all ages. As women, we benefit from the wisdom and encouragement of those who have gone before us and reflect Jesus. A mentoring relationship can be soil for rich spiritual growth.
Flourish is a one-year mentoring journey that connects women at Shandon in a curriculum-based relationship to encourage and challenge one another in their walks with Jesus. We were commanded to a God-filled life for the sake of the Gospel in Titus 2:3-5. Through Flourish, we can call each other to a higher standard of living in a grace-filled way as we share life and study scripture together.
The mentorship groups will consist of one mentor with 3-5 mentees. The Flourish books can be purchased through Shandon or here.
Applications for the first round of Flourish at Shandon are below. You can email Erin Carroll, the Women’s Discipleship Coordinator, at with any questions.

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.

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.
