For the week of January 16, 2022
IN-PERSON WORSHIP IS CANCELED FOR THIS SUNDAY - JOIN US ONLINE

THIS IS YOUR MOMENT
At some point, we’re all going to encounter life-defining moments. Esther, an unlikely Bible heroine, did. And just like her, it’s up to us whether we’ll seize them or let them slip by. Whether we’ll leverage our influence for good or hope someone else takes the lead. When the time comes, are you ready to say “yes” to the opportunities God has given you? This is your moment! Join us Sundays at 10 AM in person or online at MySPBC.tv, Facebook or YouTube @myspbc.

THE BRIDGE BIBLE STUDY
New Year’s resolutions center on what we need to change and improve. We often resolve to prioritize our faith, family, and friends, take control of our finances and focus on what is really important. But isn’t it easy to find ourselves repeating the same old patterns and routines that we committed to change? Join us every Thursday at 11 AM and 7 PM on MySPBC.tv, Facebook and YouTube @myspbc as we kick off the New Year and discover how to make a Fresh Start that lasts.
