Our Church will be having a memorial service for Victor Quong on Sunday February 28th at 4PM. The Zoom meeting link will be provided in the upcoming weeks. We are collecting photos of Victor to put together a slide show for the memorial service. If you have any pictures of Victor that we can use, please email the church office no later than February 21st. Ministry Leaders Meeting has been rescheduled to March 6th from 9-11AM. The meeting link and more information will be provided through email to all ministry leaders. There are currently two opportunities for our church body to help elderly members of our congregation. These opportunities enable us to get to know the families, give encouragement and have fellowship with them. The needs are ongoing. Please contact info@sfbible.org for additional details. Please join with us to celebrate our Lord’s birth on Saturday, December 19th at 7:30PM for our Christmas Program, “Joy to the World.” In-between our time of singing, there will be a Christmas devotional by Pastor Ray. The Gospel will be preached, so be sure to invite your friends and family! More details to follow. Our Church will be hosting our very first blood drive on Tuesday, November 24th from 1-6PM. There is a current need for blood donors in our community since many regular blood drives at schools and office cannot take place due to shelter-in-place orders. Our church is partnering with Vitalant to host this blood drive to help our community. We encourage all of you to consider being blood donors. Anyone aged 16 years and older, and in good general physical heath can be a blood donor. Minors will have to get parent/guardian permission. Detailed information to help you determine if you are suitable blood donor can be found at https://vitalant.org If you would like to be a blood donor, please sign up for an appointment at https://go.sfbible.org/blood-drive. The next Church Family Meeting is on October 18th. If you have completed the Fundamentals of Church Life class and would like to become a member of SFBC at this meeting, please submit your membership application as soon as possible. This Adult Sunday School class will provides a clear overview of the basics of our faith. We are planning to start this class in a few weeks if there is enough interest. Please contact Jimmy N if you are interested in taking these Sunday school classes. Come join for a time of fellowship, Q&A, and prayer with Pastor Weymann Lee on Sunday, November 1st at 3:30-5:00 PM. Please contact the church office for additional details. Both Redwood Christian Park, where we’ve been holding our Church Family Retreat since 2010, and Mt. Hope where our teenagers have attended CBM’s Jr. Hi. and Sr. Hi camps for several decades are in dire financial straits due to COVID. Both have cut their staffing and expenses to bare minimum and both camps may be forced to close their doors at some point. If you would like to donate to either camp you can now do so through SFBC. Our online donation system now allows you to donate to either camp fund. If you wish to donate by check, please designate as “RCP” or “Mt. Hope” on the memo line. The GIG Fellowship, ministry to the 50+, is hosting an on-line seminar on signing Christian songs in American Sign Language, ASL, open to everyone on Friday, October 23, 2020 from 7:30-9:00 PM.

During shelter-in-place (SIP) and social distancing, it’s been difficult to meet together much less sing and praise our Lord, together, in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs from our hearts, Ephesians 5:19-20.

Come and join us to learn how to sign and communicate spiritual truths and songs using sign language. Our guest speaker, Derek Foddrill, comes highly recommended by one of our congregation members. He leads a deaf ministry at a Southern California church. Come and hear how God directed him into the deaf ministry and learning ASL. He will teach us some basic ASL and how to sign a Christian song.

If you are interested in joining the seminar, please send your email address to gig@sfbible.org no later than Monday, October 19, 2020. We will send you the Zoom meeting link.
