COINS THAT COUNT is a continuous effort to assist in an early payoff of our mortgage. Look for various containers throughout the church to drop your coins or bills in and make them count.

March for Our Lives Final Meeting. All persons who signed up to support the “March for Our Lives” in Washington DC are scheduled to meet on Friday, March 23, 2018 in room Love at 6:00 pm for final preparations. This meeting will cover departure time, itinerary, safety precautions, and waivers. We humbly ask that our prayer warriors, church leadership, and congregation cover us with prayer as we travel to join and support the students of Marjory Douglas High School where 17 lives were tragically and senselessly lost to gun violence. We thank each of you in advance for your prayers and to God be the glory!!!

Come worship with SBC on Friday, March 30, 2018 at 7 p.m. for our Good Friday Service. What was done to Jesus was definitely not good, however the results of Christ’s death are very good! Romans 5:8, Christ died for us. You will experience the WORD, the LOVE, the FELLOWSHIP, the FOOD and the music in the key of JAZZ. Bring your family and bring a friend. A sign-up sheet is located in the Atrium.

During Lent, we enter into a season of preparation, self-reflection and repentance. Christian Education Ministry offers a special Bible study series on the study of “Bread and Broth” by Cynthia Cowen.

This Bible series designed for both adults and youth began on February 14, 2018, starting with Pastor Fleming’s introductory, and then followed by six dynamic speakers that will share the stories from the lives of Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Elisha, John the Baptist, and Jesus.

Jesus proclaimed during his 40 days in the wilderness, “man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” After the spiritual feed by the study of God’s Word, please join us each week for soup or stew related to the Bible Characters studied each week, with some bread thrown in for good measure. We hope you will consider joining us for good food, good fellowship, and the Good Word.
