If you have been sitting on the fence regarding this important step in your faith – now is the time!  Now is the time to take the plunge and show everyone that you take Jesus seriously and want to make Him the most important person in your life. If you would like to be baptized, please reach out to one of our pastors. They would love to walk you through this discipleship process and get you ready for this important event.

KAIROS COURSE - Monday evenings online starting April 17 for six weeks followed by two in-person     sessions at SGAC.

    This month we are highlighting Afonso & Becky Chinhama who work with SIM serving the church in Angola. Becky’s mom attends SGAC and when they are back in Canada they attend SGAC with her.
    Current prayer requests are:
  • The wife of the pastor in their local church has recently passed away leaving three small children behind. Pray for the Chinhama’s and their small church family as they meet the needs & minister to this grieving family.
  • Afonso is often away doing ministry. Pray for him as he serves, as well as for Becky as she is home with their children. 

 - - We are urgently searching for ushers to serve at the 11:15 service. Please contact the church office if you would like to sign up or if you have any questions.
