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

September 2022 Announcement

Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is open for distribution. We are so blessed to be able to help individuals in need through this feeding ministry. The pantry will be open for distribution on Thursdays from 11:00am – 3:00pm.

How can you help? I’m glad you asked.

We need your help with donations of canned goods and we are still in need of volunteers to help distribute on Thursday’s. Please see Lady Melissa Garner or Minister Grace Malcolm.

Christian Education

Sunday School is at 9:00am in the Main Sanctuary for all ages.

Bible Study is Tuesday, 11:00am and 6:00pm.
Our new series is titled ‘Grace is Greater”.  We are excited about coming back together to learn and to grow through the teaching of God’s written Word.

New Believer’s/Members class (Part 1) will be held on
Wednesdays at 5:30pm for six weeks beginning August 10, 2022.
All new members are required to attend.

Soul Winning Class

Minister Franklin Mayfield will continue his teaching on “Soul Winning” here at SBWC.  Saturday, August 13 at 10:00am.  (The sign-up sheets are located in the foyer).

In Biblical times, a disciple referred to anyone studying under, and trying to emulate, a valued teacher. To modern day Christians, it means a follower of Christ who leads by following his example.

In John 13:34-35, Jesus says “Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Discipleship is a process of not only holding onto your faith but growing in it so that you may lead others toward Christ by your example of love.

Women of Worth

Our Women of Worth fellowship is scheduled for Saturday, September 10, from 10:00am -2:00pm.

1 Peter 5:8 says, “be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour”.

The theme is “A Walk on the Wild Side”. Remember, this ministry is open to all ladies ages 11 and up. We hope you can attend.

Senior Social

Adults 60+ get together for fun every 4th Wednesday from 11am – 2pm.  Games, activities, movies, excursions and more.  Contact Minister Grace Malcolm for more information.

Tithe & Offering

You can sow your seed into this ministry and here are the five ways:

  1. Online – at through Realm (just click give)
  2. Or simply text sbwc to 73256 followed by your gift amount
  3. The Givelify App

Last but certainly not least

Pastor Appreciation Month

October has long been recognized worldwide as Pastor Appreciation Month. The call to honor our church leaders’ contributions can be traced back to the Apostle Paul. In establishing the first Christian churches, Paul advised the congregation in (1 Timothy 5:17) to give “double honor” to the elders of the church who managed the affairs of the church well, “especially those whose work is preaching and teaching”.

So, when we consider all that our Pastor does for us, it becomes clear how important it is to celebrate and uplift him.

This concludes October 2021 Announcements.
