February Special Offering for the Poor - Feb. 24th:

On the final two Sundays of February, SB Community will seek to respond to God's blessings with generosity as we collect our Special Offering for the Poor. Funds collected over these two weeks will be sent to Christian Leadership Training International for the continued construction of a college preparatory High School in Liberia under the leadership of Sei and Yah Buor who recently visited SB Community. In a country left decimated by a 12-year civil war and suffering from entrenched cycles of generational poverty, educational options are few. This school will serve to provide access to education for young people and families who often have few options outside of subsistence farming. If you would like further info on this ministry, please contact Benji.
