February 2023 Update

Dear SCC Family,

We hope you have had a restful January and are looking forward to an exciting 2023. A lot of planning has already gone into our focus for 2023. This year, we look forward to the completion of Stage Two of our Building Renovations, expanding the number of people in our SCC Leadership Community, taking the first steps to greater deployment into our community, and seeing our young adults, youth and kids ministries grow.

Purchase of Demountable Building (Donga) and Renovations

To provide additional facilities for our SCC Kids and a site office during renovations to our building, we have purchased a portable building that will be placed at the north end of our west parking lot. The demountable arrived on site in January and will be assembled in due course. During stage two renovations, anticipated to take 4-5 months, we will make alternative arrangements for morning tea following Sunday services (TBA). Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
