What's Happening NOW

Sugarloaf has gone digital!  Please be sure to check out the kid's and student pages to see how to connect with them. Check out the Sunday Services tab to hear our messages online and more.  Our adult groups are meeting via zoom during this time so bible studies are small groups are still on.   Remember WE ARE THE CHURCH, just because the building is closed does not mean we can't still worship and praise God.  So check out our page for Sunday Services and below for how you can grow and serve.


Grow

All on campus activities will not be held at this time.  All groups will move to an online platform.  We want you to be able to connect with your grow groups.  You will have the opportunity to meet with your group in some creative and less conventional ways at this time.  We know groups are a vital part of your week to connect, be encouraged, get into the Word and to pray together .Now you have an opportunity for you to connect.


Your Grow Group leader will be in contact with you in the upcoming week about meeting on our online platform.  We know what God can use this technology in amazing ways for us to continue to connect with each other.

If you are not connected to a group at this time and would like more information, or to be connected to a group, please email us at growgroups@sugarloaf.org.


How can we be of service?

With all the uncertainty in our world, how can we best be of help to each other & our community?


First of all, prayer is so important.  


Second, look for ways to give back - nothing means more than a phone call, text, or even good old fashioned snail mail to let others know they are loved and cared about during difficult times.


Consider doing a food drive in your neighborhood and making a drop off to your local co-op or even volunteering at the co-op.  They all need help right now.


Also since we are a church that loves to serve, let's remember those less fortunate than ourselves.  Our local co-ops all are in need of items and also volunteers to help give out food.  Many of our co-ops have all relied on retired folks for a long time as volunteers.   Since this population needs to stay inside, all 3 local co-ops are looking for any volunteer help they can get.  Most are open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10-2 but this inforation is subject to change.
