More Opportunities & Info
February Special Offering for the Poor – Today & Feb. 26th: On the final 2 Sundays of February, SBCC will have the opportunity to give over and above our regular giving in order to care for some of the most vulnerable. Our gifts to the Palestinian Bible Society will be used in two ways. First, our giving will support PBS’ Touches of Mercy project which seeks to provide relief for the materially poor in Gaza, the West Bank, and Jerusalem. In addition, PBS will use this Special Offering to further their efforts to bless and support persecuted Christians throughout the region. Red boxes will be on the stage on February 19 and 26 for the collection of these gifts that will be a significant blessing to those facing the ravages of poverty and persecution.
