2016 Men’s Small Groups


Sign up now for the 2016 “Men’s Triple Feature.” In small groups, guys will watch three popular full-length films, divided into manageable parts over 12 weeks. Sessions will last under 90 minutes, with time for fellowship, viewing, and discussion about the spiritual insights of these powerful movies. Men of all ages, if you’ve never joined a study before, or a men’s small group in particular, now is the time!The study begins the week of February 17 and finishes up the week of May 4, and the deadline to register is Wednesday, February 3. We hope to offer several options of meeting days/times, depending on your feedback and the level of demand, so follow the link below to register:

Last, but not least, I will need a few good men to take the lead as facilitators in some of the small groups. Be sure to indicate in the registration if you’re willing and able to serve in this capacity. Thanks, fellas! With any questions, contact Rev. Josh McClendon (jmcclendon@shandon-umc.org).

2015 Christmas Wreath Sales


It’s that time again for our annual fundraiser to benefit the Scouts. The Sons of Thunder will be selling Christmas Wreaths from the Mickman Company, set for delivery in the first week of December. Our deadline for sales has been pushed back to November 15, so all of our orders and money should be turned in by that date.

To help at the sales tables at the church, we have two shifts on Sunday mornings, and two tables per shift. That means, at minimum, we need four (yes, just 4) men to commit to manning the tables on Sundays. Plus one person for Wednesday night Manna. The shifts are as follows:

Sunday Shift #1: 10:30am to 11:00am
Sunday Shift #2: 11:45am to 12:15pm
Wednesday Manna: 5:15pm to 6:00pm

To sign up for a shift, contact me at 803-984-9662 or jmcclendon@shandon-umc.org. Also, you may want to download the sales sheet and print one for yourself to sell to family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Click here for that full-color PDF.

Thanks, guys, and let’s help fund our Scouts together!
