Life Groups

What are Life Groups?

Our Annual SFBC Women’s Banquet will be held on Saturday, Oct. 12th at 6pm. This year’s theme is Resting In The Comforter. A sign-up sheet has been posted for ladies who would like to host a table.  Hostesses are responsible for decorating their table, providing dishes for their guests, and selling tickets. All proceeds will go toward the Sleeping In Heavenly Peace Ministry. This ministry provides handmade wooden beds, mattresses, bedding and a Bible to local children who have no bed of their own. We will discuss all other details at a brief informational meeting on Aug. 18th after Evening Worship.

Women’s Bible Study

 Our Fall Women’s Bible Study will be Kingdom Woman by Dr. Tony Evans. We’ll meet each Thursday evening beginning Sept. 5th from 6-6:45pm for fellowship and food, followed by the Bible study beginning at 6:45. This is a 6-week study teaches women to align and operate themselves under the authority of God in every aspect of their lives. When a Kingdom Woman retires  for the evening, a frustrated and worn out devil ought to be saying, “We messed with the wrong woman today.”
