Happy birthday and happy anniversary to you!

Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary to you all!

Christian Education
Please join us Sunday mornings at 9:30am for our Sunday Biblical teaching in the sanctuary for all ages. This month we begin our study of “The Book of 2nd Corinthians” by Rich Villodas. Authentic Christianity has never been about how put together we seem to be. It’s always been about how God works powerfully through our shortcomings to accomplish his purpose for us. In this eight-week series, Pastor Rich Villodas describes how opening ourselves up in genuine relationships with others invite the power of Jesus to shine through our weakness.

Tuesday Bible study is offered at 11:00am and 6:00pm. We are continuing our study of the book “Romans”.  We’ve reserved a seat just for you.

Youth Ministry 

SBWC’s Youth ministry meets every Tuesday evening at 6:00pm in the Fellowship Hall with sis Alice Reid. This month’s scripture and activities will focus on Psalm 145:18 in Learning How to get closer to God. We encourage you to come out as a family to learn more about Gods plan for us.

Mother’s Day 
Mothers are special because they are always there when needed, and they are willing to let go even when it hurts. Mothers are special because they care enough to say no when needed. Mothers are special because they always welcome you with an open heart and open arms, and they love unconditionally. Isaiah 66:13 says, “For this is what the Lord says, as a mother comforts her son, so I will comfort you”. Please mark your calendars for May 11th; which just happens to be Mother’s Day, the 2nd Sunday in May. Invite your family and friends to come Worship with you.

Senior Social 
Staying socially active is important for all adults. It can improve our emotional, intellectual, and physical wellness.

The senior adult ministry meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 11am to 2pm, which will be on May15th. So please mark your calendars so that you can take part in some great activities and fellowship.

Isaiah 25:4 (NIV), says “You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat”.

Our next WOW fellowship is scheduled for Saturday, May 18, 2024, from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Our theme is “Pink Rain.” The goal for the conference is to empower, uplift, and let all women know they can give their burdens to God, as we learn to Focus on the shelter of God’s love and care for us from the “rain” of the storms in our lives,

Tithe & Offering

Matthew 6:19-21 says, “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.”

When the Bible talks about it being more blessed to give than receive, I couldn’t agree more. From thinking about the person and picking out the item to wrapping it and finally seeing the person’s reaction when they open it, the whole process is energizing for me and it helps me prioritize what is important.


Our hearts change – When giving to God’s Kingdom becomes a priority, something amazing happens—our hearts begin to change. The importance of this world begins to lessen as we raise our gaze to see what God is doing and invest in it.

We do something God loves – God loves it when we give cheerfully to His purposes. It is an act of trust and obedience that shows what our hearts treasure… and that blesses God.

We get to join God in what He’s doing – “Look for where God is at work and join Him in it.” When giving to God’s kingdom becomes a priority, this is a tangible opportunity to do just that.

There are several ways to give your tithe and offering!

  1. Online at,
  2. Text SBWC and the gift amount to 73256),
  3. Givelify App,
  4. the church drop slot
  5. or by mail to:  414 Silver Road, 34472. Remember, God love a cheerful giver.

On behalf of Pastor Garner and our SBWC family, we pray that God will bless you mightily in all areas of your life. Please know that if you are without a church home and would like to be united with other believers in Jesus Christ, we have a place right here for you.

And as a little reminder, if you are watching via YouTube or Facebook, please help spread the gospel by subscribing to, liking, and sharing this video with your friends and family.

Have a blessed day in the Lord!
