At our lunch, we will discuss how we live this out through
the different ministries in our church. To help you take your
first steps, we will have people from our church who are
already connected, but were once new to SPBC. They will
be able to connect with you, answer questions you might
have, and help you find a place at SPBC.
The lunch will take place right after our 2nd service in our
Connections Café. You have to eat lunch anyway; why not
have lunch on us? We look forward to meeting you today!
