Good Morning SCCC Family,                                                                                       

* We’re having a great week with friends from back home. These guys have been in my life for about 20 years, walked with me through some very difficult times during my life. He was the best man at Jeannine and my wedding and she has become a great friend to Jeannine as well. We see them once a year, but we always continue right from where we left off. What a treat to have a few days with them.
 
* The Annual General Meeting happens Thursday evening at 6:30pm. All the Reports can all be accessed by clicking
HERE. If you are an attendee of SCCC, I encourage you to attend this very important evening. We’ll even get into a bit of dessert. Hope to see you there.

* Wow it did come together – SCCC folks were able to come alongside Castaway Kids and work together to bless our community. Larry Kalmbach, overseer from Castaway expressed his gratitude for all the great help. It was a great day and the kids at La Manga are already using the new play structure to the fullest. There is some great pictures on the church’s facebook page.
 
* Feb 28 3:30-5:30pm – Through the generosity of Doug Burnie, we are offering a free CPR training (2 hours) at the church. Please call Doug if you’d like to sign up 622 116-4795.

* “Co Dependents Anonymous” is a ministry I was introduced to by Stan McIntyre (Mac) just recently. Mac has moved to SC and has been attending our church over the last few months. I was encouraged by the things he shared with me and after hearing the testimony of one of our leader’s spouse, “CoDa absolutely changed my life”, we have agreed to provide room for CoDa to begin offering their program at the church – Mondays, Feb 27 10:00 – 11:30 AM.

* Sermon Series: This week, we looked at Peter’s passage on trials and hardships. I think the question I’m left with whenever life is throwing a bit of a curve ball, relates directly to how I see God. Will He come through? Will He truly walk with me? Will he truly help me? Many times, Its totally a faith journey as we don’t have all the answers to the “whys” of our story. And the question then becomes, can I live in the “mystery” of it all. When my focus is on “why me”, I find myself unwilling to live in that mystery. When my focus is on “I trust you, God”, that answer is always enough. That reality allows me to live through the situation with not knowing the why of every situation and it becomes satisfying to simply trust God and to live in the mystery. If you have to solve the mystery of every “why”, you will often become a very disappointed believer.

Next Sunday, we will look at one word – holy! If someone asked you, “are you holy,” how would you respond? God says, “be holy as I am holy”. Would we look at ourselves and define ourselves (to others) as holy? Why / Why not? Come explore with us next Sunday as we look at the question of holiness and what it does and doesn’t mean. I think it will be interesting.

It’s a great week to serve Jesus,
Pastor Glenn y Jeannine
