INvested. INvolved. INvigorated.

Annual stewardship campaign

At Shandon Presbyterian Church,
We’re all IN.
INvested. INvolved. INvigorated.

Investing in God’s mission happens when we look at the blessings of our lives and then decide to give to the ministry and work of Shandon Presbyterian Church. We thank all who have generously given over the past year to get us to where we are today. We hope that others will join your good example, and all of us will prayerfully consider making a financial commitment to the church for 2020. The goal is to increase the number of giving units by 25 as we strengthen our church for its ministry.

Involved in caring for each other in our shared life of faith is the very fabric of our church. Now is a great time to step forward as we gather the church and pull together to love in the manner of Jesus Christ our Lord. Being involved is a growth experience as we provide generous, thoughtful and compassionate gifts to each other and our neighbors. Please pray that all of us may get more involved during this time of change and opportunity. It is a great time to come to Shandon.

Invigorated by what lies ahead for us through our investments and involvement, we seek to build the church in this place. It is a time of revitalization for our congregation. The search for a new pastor is underway. Our Director of Christian Education is being called to be our Associate Pastor for Children, Youth and Families. Our Associate Pastor for Campus Ministry is now our Associate Pastor for Discipleship with increased time for pastoral care and outreach. What an exciting time lies ahead – a time to truly feel invigorated and hopeful.
