Dear SCCC Family,
We are happy to share some exciting news! As of Sunday, February 7, we have begun to meet at Christian Fellowship Center at 822 Church St in New Bedford. Pastor Kenn and the CFC family have graciously invited us to share the space and utilize the facilities there.
As many of you know, we have been searching for a building to accommodate our growth and needs, so this comes at the perfect time and offers us some long-term opportunities as a church body. Pastor Kenn has expressed to the CFC family that he will be moving on soon and has asked Pastors Brian and Jamie to consider leading their church!
Obviously, we are seeking God’s will and moving forward thoughtfully and prayerfully as we navigate this new part of the SCCC journey. As Pastors Brian and Jamie often remind us, we are “one Church,” so bringing these two churches together to worship, grow, and serve is a demonstration of us embracing this philosophy and truth.
Because a major concern is the well-being of all of our members and visitors, we are still asking everyone to sign up ahead of time via email, (firstname.lastname@example.org), and to continue to honor the social distancing, hand sanitizing, and mask wearing guidelines. Please sign up for Sunday service by the Friday before to ensure your name is on the list. We will also continue to stream the Sunday service live on Facebook and YouTube for those who are still not ready to meet in person. Service times are 8:30AM and 10:30AM, with kids church being offered during the 10:30 service. (there’s even a soundproof room for babies and toddlers that allows parents to watch the service without disturbing the congregation!)
We continue to put our hope and trust in the Lord, not the government or the economy or the healthcare system. We are blessed to live in this country and have access to all that we do here. Let us continue to pray for all of those who are affected throughout the world.
You can find our SCCC app in the Apple App Store and the Google Play store.
“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” -Isaiah 43:19
As always, it is our honor to serve you.
Pastors Brian, Jamie, and The SCCC Leadership Team
