Giving Tuesday

 

 

GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that will take place on December 1, 2020.  This is a day where you can ask family, friends, employers and co-workers to sow a seed into the SBC ministry.  SBC COVID-19 Task Force will continue to support those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic into 2021.  Funds are needed to help feed families, supplement utilities and rent, support seniors, help those who are under employed find jobs and support those experiencing mental illness. GivingTuesday is also a day to show someone you care by raking leaves for a neighbor, going grocery shopping for a senior or praying with someone who is grieving or home alone.  SBC is a 501c(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible.  Help us help others during this massive and sensitive time of need.  A GivingTuesday Flyer will be available for you to share with others on the church website and Facebook page.    Donations online can be made by clicking on this link: bit.ly/sbchelps

  •  And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 (NIV)
