SPECIAL & ANNUAL
SB COMMUNITY EVENTS
Spiritual Listening Seminar – Saturday, June 22, 9:00am-1:00pm: As small group leaders, parents, friends, and disciplers we have conversations with people about spiritual things, but not many of us are trained as Christian counselors! This interactive class is designed to provide us with some practical, hands-on training in how to be more thoughtful and intentional in our spiritual conversations, both in groups and one on one. Led by SBCC member Polly Matsuoka, LMFT, we’ll practice ways to express acceptance, curiosity and empathy with and without words, as well as exploring the kinds of questions that invite others to a deeper relationship with Jesus. Lunch included! Space is limited so sign up soon if you’re coming. Contact Erin Patterson (gro.y1561545328tinum1561545328mocbs1561545328@nire1561545328) with questions. RSVP by clicking here.
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.
Next Retreat: April 17-19, 2020
Look for details in March and April 2020!
SB Community youth ministries take students to Forest Home for a weekend in the fall (Fall Retreat), winter (Winter Camp), and a week in the summer (Summer Camp). We’ve been going to Forest Home as a church since 1995. We LOVE it there!
