During this time of protecting one another in our church and our community by staying at home, Santa Barbara Community Church is still engaged in our mission and body life together! May our church continue to thrive and grow deeper by the power of God as we walk this journey "together."


We sincerely hope that you will find this week's worship service to be God-glorifying and encouraging and a special opportunity to celebrate our students. Please note that much of the content in the Sunday worship service video was planned and even recorded prior to the horrific and disturbing events that took place in Minneapolis this week. The tragedy of George Floyd's death and the subsequent nationwide protests are a significant reminder of the important work of justice that remains to be done in America. Your leaders at SBCC are committed to pursuing gospel-centered healing and reconciliation and are deeply grieved by what has transpired in our country, not only this week but for far too long. Please look for additional reflections from SBCC leaders early next week.



We encourage you to be wise in the way you create your new temporary normal. What patterns and rhythms will you create in the midst of the chaos? One thing we can certainly do is pray! Let's each spend 10 minutes (or more) praying through a particular passage of Scripture. Let's seek God together during these unusual times!

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. Phil 1:9-11


Or worship at a convenient time later in the week!
