WORSHIP NEWS - Sunday, August 19, 2018

This Sunday we return to our two services: 8:30 a.m. in the Chapel and 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Don Frampton will preach on 1 Kings 2:10-12; 3:3-14, and Ephesians 5:15-20. His sermon title is “Metric for Success.”


One Millionth Bottle Donated: The water purification system at El Fuerte church in Cardenas, Cuba, (installed by SCAPC members in 2012) achieved a distribution benchmark of 1,000,000 gallons on August 1st! The clean water is given freely to the community. Many SCAPC members have assisted with maintaining the system over these past 6 years, and we extend gratitude to each person who has given time or money, who has prayed fervently, and who has otherwise participated in this partnership of faith.

Supper Clubs are Back! Supper Clubs are intergenerational groups, including people (singles and couples) who are new to SCAPC as well as longtime members. All adults attending SCAPC are invited to participate. Each will be assigned a club of approximately 8 people. The goal is to get together monthly in the Fall to host/lead alternating meals. The group will determine when it will meet. Details and registrations are at this link. The deadline is Monday, August 20th.
