SPECIAL & ANNUAL
SB COMMUNITY EVENTS
Valentine’s Day for Local Foster Youth – Feb. 13th: Our Friendsgiving event in November, where we served a meal with intentional mentoring for our local foster youth, was a huge success. Our community liaisons have asked SBCC to host events quarterly to allow for more community involvement and mentorship for our local foster youth.
We are excited serve our youth once again by hosting a Valentines Day event on February 13th from 6:00-8:00pm.
We are in need of supplies and food items to make this event a success. Please sign up for an item HERE.
All items need to be delivered to church by 5:00 pm on February 13th.
Thank you for partnering with us. Please contact Tracy Wilcox, 805-637-8667 with any questions.

Annual All-Church Retreat
Annually, Santa Barbara Community Church retreats to Malibu, CA in April for an extended time of rest, recreation, fellowship, worship and learning. If you haven’t been to one of our all-church retreats before, ask others what it is like!
There is something for everyone. Places to stay range from hotel accommodations all the way to camping on a deck. Our worship together is enhanced by poolside baptisms, meals together, recreational activities, a musical performed by our kids, and more. Even our children have a Kids Retreat to enjoy while adults worship together. The Kids Retreat provides a way for elementary age children and younger to worship and grow closer to God, as well as build their own relationships among their peers.
