COVID-19 UPDATE

4 Easy Ways to Give

UPDATED 3/18/2020

Hello Sharon Family,

We wanted to update you on our response to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus outbreak. As we seek to comply with federal, state and local governing bodies, we've been monitoring their reports and recommendations closely. It is with much prayer and collective discernment that we have decided to close both of our church facilities and cancel all on-site services and gatherings (including Sunday Service and Bible Study) until further notice. 

 

Our decision and response is not out of fear, but out of love and care for our church family and the neighboring community. Our heart in all of this is simply to keep vulnerable populations safe, and as an intergenerational church, we want to do our part to reduce the number of people infected and protect those who are at higher risk. We want to be a part of the solution!

 

The building may be closed, but we are still having church! We invite you, your family, friends & neighbors to worship with us online on Sundays at 9:15 am and receive an encouraging message. We’ll be LIVE on thesbc.org & Facebook!

 

Even though we aren’t holding large gatherings for a while and we can’t go to “church”, let us be the church and demonstrate the love of Christ for each other! We encourage you to give someone a call, send an encouraging text or email to a friend, or go old school and send a nice card in the mail to someone that is a part of the SBC family. Many of us have stocked up on food and household items, maybe offer to share some of what you have with someone who doesn’t have the means to buy those items themselves or is fearful for their health. Let’s love and care for one another in creative ways! And of course, pray.
