What opportunities are available at SBPC?
Worship: Attending worship regularly can be a powerful spiritual practice. Consider taking some time to pray for yourself, your loved ones, the church, and the world before you enter the worship service. Allow this to be a sacred time where you acknowledge the presence of God, and quiet your heart & mind to see & hear God more clearly.
Service: Serving the church and the world is a time-honored and classic spiritual practice. Please consider taking our S.H.A.P.E. assesment where you might discover the perfect service opportunity.
Small Groups: These smaller communities offer a safe place to explore a deeper connection to God through scripture, prayer, and spiritual practices. They are also a place to ask real questions, share our authentic selves, and celebrate God's presence together. Small groups become a launching pad to service in the church and in the world. In the fall of 2009, we began incorporating regular spiritual practices into the small group curriculum. For a complete list of small group spiritual practices, please visit the side panel and click on the Spiritual Practices link. If you're interested in learning more about our small group program, please visit our small groups page.
Spiritual Formation Retreats: These are one day opportunities to set aside time with Jesus in community under the leadership of trained facilitators. These events include a variety of creative expressions and biblical teachings in order to set you free to experience God's presence. Watch for upcoming retreats!
Daily Devotional Bookmarks: Many of the message series have complimentary weekly Bible readings and reflection guides to help you create a personal rhythm of spiritual practices.
Prayer Labyrinth: This is located in the upper northwest corner of our campus. The labyrinth was designed for your use at any time, and was created by one of our high school students in collaboration with and under the oversight of our Deacon's Prayer Ministry. Labyrinth walking is more about the journey than the destination--about "being" rather than "doing". Use the labyrinth as a spiritual practice to take time out of your busy life, to silence the "noise" in your life, and to focus on God, meditating, and praying. This is an exercise in helping us to be aware of God's presence in our lives.
Prayer: The ministry of prayer is under the supervision of our deacons. For more information, please visit our Prayer page.
