We are now meeting both online and in-person at all three SBC campuses and have transitioned to new service times: Sundays at 8, 9:45 and 11:30am. Many are continuing to join us online while others are joining us on our campuses, and we encourage families and individuals to choose the option that’s best for them. We are taking every precaution to help protect those who join us, including face coverings, social distancing, limited capacity seating, and extra sanitation efforts.
Many classes, groups and programs are now meeting on our campuses and online. Our pastors and staff remain active in serving and caring for the SBC congregation and our community and are available to meet any needs you may have.
Worship with SBC
Our worship services are currently broadcasted live on Sundays at 8, 9:45 and 11:30am via our livestream webpage, SBC App, YouTube Live, Facebook and Roku or Apple TV. On Saturday nights, we’re rebroadcasting the previous week’s service at 5pm and have an online pastor hosting the service.
Our three Sunday services meet at the Shea Worship Center, Grace Chapel, SBC Cactus and SBC North Ridge.
Stay Connected in Community
We invite you to interact with us through our social media channels and subscribe to our weekly e-news where we share videos, stories, resources, upcoming events, and important news and updates. While many groups are now meeting in person our campuses, others continue to meet online. Visit our upcoming events and classes page to discover ways to connect with others in community. You can also learn about ways to help serve people in our city by visiting our local outreach page. As always, we’re here for you and available to provide counseling, help or prayer.
Keep Your Kids & Youth Engaged
Our in-person Discovery Kids and YTH programs are now meeting on each SBC campus and no preregistration is required. For those choosing not to join us in person yet, we are providing weekly video lessons, activities and worship to help your kids to stay engaged in their relationship with God. A new lesson is posted every Saturday and you can connect with your Discovery Kids team on their Facebook page as well!
Our youth in grades 5-12 are now meeting every Sunday night at 5pm on all campuses. YTH 5|6 also meets during the 9:45 and 11:30am services (at Shea and North Ridge) and 9:45am only at Cactus. Our students are also staying connected on Instagram TV and YouTube and meeting weekly for Food, Fellowship & Homework.

Would you prefer we come in person or worship from home? We are wired for community, and we want to see you! We know, however, that many are not ready to re-engage in a large group fashion just yet. Our desire is to provide the best possible opportunities for both online and in-person groups, and we will adjust our plans each week in response to how people are choosing to connect with their church. We are aware that civil authorities recommend that people continue to avoid large gatherings, and we respect the decisions each individual and family will make based on their circumstances.
What health and safety measures are in place on SBC campuses? All surfaces, seating and high-touch areas are being sanitized regularly and after each service. Social distancing within meeting spaces will be required, including two seats between each family grouping. Masks are required for everyone over the age of three in all areas of our campuses. Once seated, though still encouraged, masks may be lowered as long as adequate social distance is observed. View our updated COVID-19 policies here.
