ENCOUNTER GRACE!
Our vision for Sunday mornings is that everyone who attends would have an “encounter with grace.” Whether your serving others or hearing the good news about Jesus for the first time, everything is grace.
At Safeharbor we believe that grace leads us to repentance; that “grace always meets us where we are, but never leaves us where it found us”
 

Below you’ll find information about things happening at Safeharbor over the next few weeks.

Hurricane Precautions

We’re Floridians. You know the drill. It’s hurricane season. As of this morning, the path of Hurricane Isaias continues to hug the coast of Florida, bringing the potential for tropical-storm-force winds to our area later Sunday afternoon. We are not canceling services, but encourage you to check the weather before venturing out. Of course, we are grateful to have a livestream option as well.
Join us on campus or tune in, Sunday, 10am, on our Youtube Channel or Facebook Page


Join Us For Worship!

In the presence of Jesus, all of the labels that separate us dissolve into a tapestry of human experiences, woven together by divine purpose. We look forward to the declaration of Scripture that, one day, we will all stand in his presence, in joyous recognition that he has overcome all sin, misguided notions, open hostility, tragedies, and disasters.  There’s something powerful that happens when we lift our voices in unison, as an expression of worship and devotion to “the Risen King.”

5 … have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

Weekend Message

How do we convince people that Jesus is Lord? That the grace God has for those who trust in Jesus is not only good, but necessary? And why would anyone care what we think, anyway? 
As we make our way toward the end of the book of Acts & our Now What series, we find the Apostle Paul now in prison, and almost forgotten. If we found our selves in his position, we might conclude that God had forgotten us, or that no one would be interested in what we had to say. But Paul saw opportunity. Was he just an optimist, or did he see God’s purpose in his position? In this message, Pastor Dan

HOPE JOURNAL

If you’ve joined us in-person you should have received a “hope journal” on the way in.
If you’re watching from home we’d like you to find a notebook to use as a “hope journal” over the next few weeks.
What is a “hope journal”? In 1Peter 3:15, Peter instructs his readers to be prepared to give an answer for the reason of our hope within. Preacher Mike Frost, comments on this passage, saying that we ought to live “questionable lives”–lives that cause people to ask questions. But when they do ask questions, how do we respond? What is the reason for our hope?
In the New Testament, hope most often

Giving at Safeharbor

Give online at www.safeharbor-church.org/give or download the Church Center App.

At Safeharbor we want to live generously as an expression of our growing faith in the gospel. Generosity is about the way we freely and wisely give what God has graciously given to us–our time, influence, energy, wealth, and abilities. One big way to practice generosity is by giving consistently and sacrificially to the church family in which you participate.
Last week we gave $2309.31

Congregational Meeting

2020 has been a year of challenges (insert favorite 2020 meme here). Yet, we can testify to God’s goodness and provision at every turn. In fact, while giving has consistently been below-budget since the beginning of the COVID shutdown, we’ve been careful about spending, and we’re pleased to share that we’ve barely had to tap into any reserves up to this point.
However, there is a significant financial need on the horizon. You may remember the hailstorm that came through our area this past June. It did some damage to cars and roofs in our surrounding neighborhoods. After assessing the damage,

NIGHT OF PRAYER

jJoin us for a night of prayer, via Zoom, on Wednesday August 19th, 7:00pm.
At the end of June we hosted a night of prayer for racial healing with Rivers of Living Water Ministries and Iglesia Christiana Rejoice. We were so encouraged by our time together, that we resolved to keep the conversation going and gather again to pray. Due to the current concerns about COVID, we have chosen to move our prayer night to a Zoom Platform.
You do not need a Zoom account to participate,

Back To School Car Parade

Join us for a back to school car parade! In the last several months we’ve all missed community a lot and we understand going back to school can be stressful. 

As a way to connect with our church family and community we are planning a back to school car parade on August 16th. We will be driving through some local neighborhoods with encouraging signs and maybe some candy, too! We’re inviting you to drive with us, make some signs and grab some candy to throw if you’d like. Check our Facebook event for updates throughout the week.

Wednesday August 12th we will meet in the fellowship hall at 7pm to make posters. This is optional for anyone who would like to gather in person. If you can’t attend, please still join us for the car parade!

One Hope Free Little Pantry

We’re excited to announce that Monica Tichonoff is taking over our Safeharbor “Free Little Pantry.” Early this year One Hope International began using retired news paper boxes, donated by the Sanford Herald, to be placed around the city as pantries where those who are in need of food can simply go to a box and help themselves. Our Free Little Pantry is located on our property along Upsala Rd.
You can drop off food items in the donation bin in Fellowship Hall, or at the church office at any time. If you’d like to help with this project send an email to the church office and we’ll get you connected.
