New Equipping Classes - January through May
The aim of our weekly Equipping Classes is to prepare members for effectively living out and serving others with the gospel. This January through May, we look forward to taking some concentrated time to equip our members in five key areas: Christian Living, Bible Books Study, Foundations, Theology and Sermon Study.
Also, in order to better plan for which class you attend, please see the planned classes for 2022 and 2023. We hope this will better assist you in preparing for personal and corporate discipleship within and outside the church.
Consider coming to be a part of one of these Equipping Classes:
- Christian Living: Evangelism & Neighboring (FH401)
- Bible Books Study: The Gospel of Luke (FH404)
- Foundations: Fundamentals of the Church (FH403)
- Theology: Systematic Theology - The Doctrine of the Church & Holy Spirit (FH402)
- Sermon Study (FH400)
Make plans to celebrate our 25th Anniversary on Sunday, March 5, 2023. More details will be announced soon as we anticipate a great day together!

25th Anniversary Cookbook
Hello church family! This coming spring, SWBC will celebrate 25 years of ministry. To commemorate this occasion, we are going to create a church cookbook. Imagine all of our favorite recipes in ONE spot!
You can submit each recipe HERE, or you can grab a paper form to fill out from any of the following ladies: Angie Dubbert, Rachel Stouffer, Ann Gray, or Raylene Tormanen. There will be a beautifully decorated basket in the foyer to collect the paper forms in the weeks to come.
Remember, recipes CANNOT be copyrighted, so any online or other cookbook recipes you love in addition to your family recipes CAN and should be included.
Let any of the ladies listed above know if you have any questions! We will be collecting recipes until mid-February. So please submit all of your favorites! Please read the instructions carefully so we don’t have any formatting issues when we publish.
