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 December 3, 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

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. 

If you would like to be included on the prayer list, please email Dorsey Jones and she will share the document that we are using for prayer requests and send brief instructions on its use.

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.)
