Hey there SCBC family and friends!

In this morning’s video, we shared our plans to gather together next Sunday in two services at 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM with limited seating at each.  This is in keeping with our best efforts to provide the safest environment possible for you to gather together to worship the Lord.  For this to be a success we need your cooperation, understanding, and support.

To help us plan and make the morning as safe and successful as possible we are asking you to register for which service you plan to attend using this form.  

At this time, we will not be holding any Sunday School classes, providing nursery care, children’s ministry, or student ministry.  We will only be having “Family Worship” while we take the necessary time to discover the best practices for our large group gathering.  In time, we will begin to add these other ministries back into our Sunday routines.  But for now, we are intentionally keeping things simple.

For those of you who choose not to regather with us at this time, I want you to know that we support you in this decision!  We will continue to provide a live stream option of both services for you to worship along with us.  We have ordered equipment to make this option the best we can but due to the state of things this equipment is back-ordered and may not be here for a few weeks.  We are asking your patience with our production and promise that we are working to provide a quality live stream option soon.

We are excited that next week we are going to focus on the partaking of the Lord’s Supper together.  If you are planning to join us via the live stream next week, please make plans to have your own elements available for the believers in your household at this time.  If you would like, you may come by the church office this week M-F between 8:00 AM and 3:30 PM to pick up the prepackaged elements for your family and guests.

I am excited to see what the Lord is going to do next week and in the weeks to come.

The words of the prophet Joel are ringing in my ears today:

     15 Blow the trumpet in Zion;
           consecrate a fast;
        call a solemn assembly;
     16    gather the people.
       Consecrate the congregation;
           assemble the elders;
       gather the children,
          even nursing infants.
       Let the bridegroom leave his room,
          and the bride her chamber. 


     Joel 2:15-16

God bless and to him be all the glory!
