Safe Families for Children Training Sessions

SFFC will be offering a series of training sessions on Sundays from February 25 through March 25 from 8:15-9:30 AM. Our next meeting is Sunday, March 18.

For newcomers, these sessions will culminate in new volunteer applicants getting their FBI fingerprint cards completed while attending the final fellowship meeting. For those who need a refresher, you may pick and choose which sessions to attend. For those who started training last year, but need to finish your training, this is the perfect way to complete your training and get your FBI fingerprinting done.

The Art of Neighboring

What if when Jesus told us that we "should love our neighbor as ourselves," he meant that we should love our actual neighbors? At SGC, we want to do just that; love our neighbors in practical, prayerful, and tangible ways. For many of us, that means that we have to transition from viewing our neighbors as strangers to viewing them as acquaintances, then to developing a relationship with them. But how do you do that if you've had the same neighbors for years but don't even know their names? Or only know their names? Or what if you're new to a neighborhood?

This year, in an effort to encourage us in reaching our lost neighbors, the E-Team is going to be sponsoring 5 classes spread throughout the year to share practical ways that we can grow in our love for, and engagement with, our neighbors. We'll have ideas for overcoming the "fences" in our neighborhood relationships. The class is open to anyone who would like to attend. The next meeting will be May 6, from 1:00-2:00 PM.

What to expect:

  • We will discuss how we can take the Great Commission seriously.
  • We'll spend some time in prayer
  • We'll discuss practical yet simple ways to engage our neighbors.

Scheduled Classes:

  • October 1
  • December 3
  • January 14
  • March 4
  • May 6

The meetings will be an hour long leaving enough time for you to grab lunch after church and join us in the multipurpose room. We'd love to see you there. For more information, contact Blake Johnson.

Men’s Ministry for 2017-2018

The apostle Paul tells the Corinthians, “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong” (1 Cor. 16:13) This is no small task. God calls men to lead in their families and to lead in the church. He also calls us to be godly and to work to build His kingdom. We are to say with Paul, “To live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21)

We cannot do this alone. We need the grace of God. We need the Holy Spirit. And we need…each other.

We hope to build a community where men are strengthened in their faith and encouraged in their callings as men. This year we have scheduled evening meetings, Saturday morning meetings with breakfast, and a late fall retreat where we can grow in our friendships with one another and in our pursuit of God. 


Saturday, October 14 Morning Teaching & Breakfast
December 1-2 Retreat at Mt. Shepherd Retreat Center,  Asheboro, NC
Wednesday, January 31 Evening Teaching
Saturday, March 17 Morning Teaching & Breakfast
Wednesday, May 30 Evening Teaching

Help Needed for Keepers Clubs

Keepers 1st-2nd grade club needs volunteers to help lead the girls through projects so that they can keep earning their merits through the end of the year! We’d love to be able to finish up our year!

  • Mar. 29: Baking: Fruit Cobbler
  • Apr. 12: Flowers Merit (planting, deadheading, caring for flowers)
  • May 10: Lead EOY activity (finish up flower merit if absent the meeting before)

If you are interested in serving or if you have additional questions, please contact Elizabeth Ehresman

Tuesday Prayer Meetings

Every Tuesday afternoon from 1:00-3:00 PM there will be people in room 103 praying. 

You may come and go anytime during those hours. The first hour is more structured - praying for our world, our nation, our community, our church, our families and ourselves. We will try and primarily use scripture as we intercede in these areas. The second hour is more spontaneous. 

Everyone is welcome! Hope to see you Tuesday.

(Please note: if the office is closed due to weather or observed holidays, the prayer meeting is canceled. Please check the church calendar.)
