The Post Quarantine Church

Tonight we’re talking about our immediate community. The COVID19 Pandemic has caused many congregations to re-focus and remember why they were planted in the neighborhoods where they exist. SCBC has existed for 250 years as of 2020! So, what are the areas of community ministry SCBC is currently investing in? And what are some areas of ministry that have become more evident because of the COVID19 Pandemic? Christ has called us to reach the deepest needs of our community. Jesus…

Children’s Church Online!

Parents, I know it’s been a challenge during quarantine for kids not to get super tired of each other or of us. Sometimes it’s tough serving the people you’re with the most! But that’s exactly what Jesus did! He served his disciples when they were most rude to Him. He asks us to do the same! Enjoy 15 minutes with your kids. Open up your Bible to Exodus 12:1-14 and Luke 22:14-19;23-27. Learn with your kids how Jesus served His…

Update: SCBC in-person meeting

December 22, 2020 Dear Simpson Creek Family, As we have written on previous occasions in the midst of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to clearly report on what is happening currently with our worship services and activities. We have maintained our normal Sunday morning schedule, along with Sunday School, study classes, and age-groups.  Fewer in attendance has allowed us to distance from one another and wear masks for the protection of others.  Some classes continue to use…
