November 2022 Announcements

The holiday season is quickly approaching.  We are rapidly winding down to the end of the year, and at Shores Baptist Worship Center, we have a lot of exciting things planned for the remainder of the year.

November Birthdays & Anniversaries 
Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary to all of our members and friends who are celebrating this month. May the light of the Lord shine upon you and grant you much happiness on your special occasion for many years to come.
Happy birthday and anniversary to you all!

Christian Education
Please join us for Sunday School at 9:00am. This month we are exploring the book of Galatians in the main sanctuary for all ages.

Tuesday Bible Study is at 11:00am and 6:00pm. This month we invite you to come out and learn how to Fight Your Battles with the Word of God.

New Believer’s/Members class (Part 2) will begin Wednesday, November 30th at 5:30pm for six weeks for those who have completed Part 1.
Please mark your calendars.

Youth ministry meets every Tuesday evening at 6:00pm in the Fellowship Hall.  Contact Sister Alice Reid for more information. We encourage you come  learn more about the Word of God!

SBWC Safety Protocols
The wearing of a mask is still mandatory within the sanctuary at Shores Baptist Worship Center . We have several groups of people with health conditions that put them at higher risk of becoming severely ill if they contract COVID-19. Wearing a medical face mask protects you and them against infection.  The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that face masks are not harmful. They do not cause a lack of oxygen or carbon dioxide poisoning. We understand the wearing a mask may sometimes be a little uncomfortable for some, so please be sure to wear one that fits you well. Thank you for complying with this request.

Veterans Day
Veterans Day is a day to honor those who served in the military, and those who have been blessed to return home. America’s veterans should be honored every day of the year, but Friday, November 11th is a national day to recognize the sacrifices of our nation’s heroes. If you know someone who has served or is still serving, take a moment to tell them THANK YOU!

Please mark your calendars for November 24, 2022. The Lord has blessed Shores Baptist Worship Center to pass out 100 thanksgiving meals again this year on Thanksgiving day from 1:00 to 3:00pm.  Sign-up forms are located in the foyer. All forms must be returned by next Sunday November 13, 2022, to Lady Garner, Sister Claudia or the Food Pantry between the hours of 11am-3pm.

Women of Worth

Attention all ladies! SBWC Women of Worth will be joining forces with Women add Value (hosted by Minister Marisel Santana) for a Global Summit entitled: The Seven Mountains of Social Influence. December 16 & 17, 2022.

Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade developed a God-given, world changing strategy. His mandate was to bring godly change to a nation by reaching its seven spheres or mountains of social influence: which are religion, family, education, government, media, arts, entertainment, and businesses. He concluded that in order to truly transform any nation with the gospel of Jesus Christ, these seven facets of society must be reached. So, please be on the look out for more information concerning this 2-day conference.

Tithe & Offering
The main principle behind tithing and giving is the fact that what we do with our money shows where our heart is. Matthew 6:21 says “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” When we are able to give 10% or more of our income instead of keeping that money for ourselves, it shows that our heart isn’t tied to our money and that we love God’s commandments more than our money.

There are several ways to give:
1. Online at
2. Text Giving (SBWC and the gift amount to 73256),
3. Givelify
4. Church drop slot: SBWC, 414 Silver Road, Ocala, FL 34472
5. By mail: SBWC, 414 Silver Road, Ocala, FL 34472

Soul Winning Class (in August 2022)

Soul Winning is our Great Commission from our Lord.   It’s not just for preachers.  It is a commandment to ALL BELIEVERS.

THE GOAL FOR THIS CLASS IS TO:  Encourage, Empower & Deploy SBWC membership into the Great Commission

The Great Commission – Matthew 28:16-20 KJV
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

God doesn’t want anyone to go to hell – John 3:16 KJV
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

When you do it for them, you do it for Jesus – Matthew 25:35-40 NKJV
…for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

Faith without Works is Dead – James 2:14-17 NKJV
What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

When you see someone in need, help them – 1 John 3:17 NKJV
But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?

The Lord will repay you for your generosity – Proverbs 19:17 ESV
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.

Lady Melissa Garner is the Head of Christian Education at SBWC

at 9:00 a.m. every Sunday Morning

MID-WEEK BIBLE STUDY (small groups)
at 11:00am & 6pm every TUESDAY




All of us take steps to see that we have enough to eat and clothes to keep us warm, a job to sustain our standard of living, we even indulge in certain luxuries. But do we take our spiritual needs that seriously? Do we apply the same earnestness to nurturing our relationship with God as we do in nurturing our physical needs and appearance?

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.  Matthew 6:19-21 NKJV

Shores Baptist Worship Center can help you strengthen your spiritual life.  We offer Christian Education Classes that help you understand the Bible, so you can know what the will of God is for your life, and it is better than you ever imagined.

 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
