Our Tuesday AM women’s Bible Study group will begin Beth Moore’s 11-week DVD series, David: Seeking a Heart Like His on Tuesday, September 12th, and you’re welcome to join us. We’ll gather in Room 105 at the SWC campus, 9:30 AM-11:00 AM and begin an exploration into the life of David, the man “after God’s own heart.”

Student ministry is alive and well at SWC. We are about equipping and training young people to grow and thrive in God while living in the real world. It’s our purpose to inspire students to impact their environment and reach out to those around them with the message of God’s love. At SWC, students can find a place where they are known, challenged and encouraged in their walk with the Lord.

To me, dogs are some of the best of creation. They want nothing more than to be present with their people and they’re loyal first and last. There are dogs with fine pedigrees and good form; our dog Zoe had neither, but what she lacked in bloodline she more than made up in personality and zest for life.
The first time we saw her, she was a filthy-gray color and cowering among many other dogs at the Payson Animal Rescue. Her mother was a tiny Terrier and her father was a large who-knows-what, and she spent the early part of her life in a wretched home, trying to make her way among 27 other dogs and never enough food to go around. Abusive humans, aggressive dogs and no resources are a trifecta of suffering. Finally, one day, she was taken to the good people at the shelter. And there she stayed until one Labor Day eight years ago.
Home on the Way is a local ministry to some of our neighbors in our valley who are in desperate need. Each month, a team from SWC serves at HOTW, sharing a delicious dinner and the love of Christ with the people who gather there. We’re collecting lip balm, summer clothing, especially men’s shirts, and sunscreen, as well. Feel welcome to donate items on any Sunday in the SWC foyer. The next HOTW outreach is scheduled for Tuesday, September 5th.
