Pastors Message

Hey SCC,

Here are assorted updates for you this week.

SCC Facility

1. The offices are nearing completion. Painting this week, and carpets after that.
2. Steady progress continues on the metal roof.
3. We’ve ran a temporary power line to the youth room area and should have that space energized soon. Besides damage to the windows, the youth room was untouched by the storm. Having power there would greatly expand our ministry options at the SCC facility.

Staff News

1. Pastor Doug is on Sabbatical until mid-August.
2. We are currently searching for a music director/ worship pastor, as well as a bookeeper and an operations assistant for our admin team.
3. Our pianist, Liz Jarret, is stepping down from her role at the end of June. She and her family are moving to Georgia to be closer to her husband’s parents. We will miss her! She has been a faithful, cheerful, talented member of our music ministry for over 9 years. If you know of someone in the congregation who plays piano and is potentially interested in helping, please let s know!

Church Planting in FM

Blaine Boyd, our church planting candidate, has sadly declined to come to Ft Myers. Instead, Blaine is pursuing a possible calling to a church where his brother’s family attends and in the same town as his parents. As I shared at the members’ meeting Sunday, Blaine and Kelly had a wonderful visit with us here and after a week of prayer had decided to come here to plant in FM. However, that very night they both had a restless sleep and woke up with no peace about coming here. It all looked good on paper but something was giving them pause. As they continued to wait on the Lord, Blaine saw what a blessing it was for his wife to be around family. In addition, he began to have conversations with his brother’s church which was pursuing him for their senior pastor opening. Blaine took the “try to get yourself fired during the interview” approach to those conversations. But no matter how blunt he sought to be with his answers to questions, the leadership there continued to respond with “that’s exactly what our church needs.” Through more prayer and ongoing conversations, Blaine and Kelly have come to see the Lord’s sovereign redirection and provision. At one level I’m disappointed. Blaine would have been a great planter, and I would have cherished the opportunity to work with a friend and gifted pastor. At another level I’m happy for Blaine and Kelly, and happy for us. I’m happy for them to be around family, especially after serving sacrificially in the Middle East away from family for many years. I’m happy for his kids to grow up with their cousins. And as strange as it sounds, I’m happy for SCC. We have taken a step of faith, and God has directed us, albeit in a surprising way. This is the walk of faith to which the Lord calls us. The need for more gospel preaching churches remains in FM, and I still have a vision and heart for our church being a part of planting a new church. However, I think we need to take a pause for the summer to pray and seek the Lord on the matter, and then see where he leads us later this year. I’m so proud of you, my church family, for being willing to step out in faith for the sake of the gospel! I don’t believe this story is over.

Rinne News

Our family will be gone on vacation June 1-10! The whole family will be getting together! We ask prayers for safe travels, refreshment and rich togetherness.

– Pastor Jeramie
