  • Wailing Wall in the SMCC courtyard

    January 23, 20 & FebRUARY 6

    January 23 - February 6, we invite you to share your sorrow and lament with God at our Wailing Wall in the courtyard. Whatever you write will be between you and God. No one at the church will read what you shared, and we ask that you respect others in not reading laments left at this wall. 

  • this valentine's day,

    give a love kit in honor of a loved one

    (VISIT OUR TABLE IN THE COURTYARD JAN. 31, FEB. 6 & 13)

    For this Valentine’s Day, instead of the usual cards and gifts we give to those we hold dear, SMCC is offering the chance to donate funds for Love Kits in your loved one’s name. A donation of just $10 covers the cost of a Love Kit: a bag filled with essentials such as toiletries, snacks, socks and other useful items. Several SMCC mission partners, such as Friends In Deed or Union Station, will distribute these kits to those in need around the greater community. Make a donation online Select “Love Kits.” Contributions by check and Venmo (@smccpby #6741) are also welcome! (Please indicate “Love Kit.”)


    You may download Valentine’s Day cards for your loved ones or pick up cards at the church office.

  • gossiping the gospel

    sundays | March 6 - April 10 | 4:00 - 6:00 P.M.

    If a friend asked you to discuss the content of your Christian faith, how would you respond? Presbyterian pastor Scott Dudley argues that today Christians are being formed not in church but by cable television and social media. Dr. Ron White, SMCC Scholar in Residence, will lead an exploration of the ten creeds and confessions--some of them written recently--in our Presbyterian Book of Confessions. And includes small group discussions. To register for the class, email SMCC@smccpby.com.

  • Emotional Intelligence workshop:

    May 15 & 22 | 4:00-6:00 P.M. | Fellowship Hall

    Explore the role that emotions play when interacting with other people. Your EQ (Emotional Intelligence) is your ability to recognize and understand emotions and your skill at using this awareness to manage yourself and your relationship with others. Those who are able to increase their EQ have a distinct advantage both professionally and personally in a number of areas including self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management.  This is a two-part workshop for individuals or couples...Please buy your book (“Emotional Intelligence 2.0” by Travis Bradberry) online or at the church office. Note: Couples should not share, it’s best that each person bring their own book to the workshop.  


    Please sign up at smcc@smccpby.com.  Space is limited!
