SPECIAL & ANNUAL
SB COMMUNITY EVENTS
Alpha Starts Feb. 23rd at 6:00pm on Sunday evenings at Santa Barbara Community Church: Alpha is a series of talks exploring the Christian faith. Typically run over ten weeks, each session explores a different question of faith that inspires conversation in small groups. We start with a light meal, then watch a 30 min video and discuss it in small groups. To find out more about Alpha, contact Della Peterson at 805-729-3054 or email .

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!
