Second B,

Through 2020 and 2021, despite all the disruption, confusion, suffering and fog, you have been so kind, so generous, so faithful. 
I thank you for giving to our congregation - a ray in the light of Christ. In early 2021 we completed our responsibility to our mortgage and we have enjoyed nearly a year without a house payment! Wonderful, thank you. 
In 2021 our VLT decided to return to an important discipline of conducting annual reviews of our financial practices by a firm with Certified Public Accountants that specialize in such work. Currently we are conducting an outside audit with a firm Second B knows and trusts. I expect we will share a report from this audit at a regular Church Conference this calendar year. This is all an attempt to give our congregation the utmost confidence that gifts are handled appropriately with the highest professional and Christian standards possible. We expect this audit and commitment to annual review to demonstrate excellence from our financial office just as you have demonstrated excellence in generosity and faith.
Please join me in thanking our many volunteers who count the offering, sign checks and support our financial well being. Further, please join me in commending our Church Financial Administrator, Tanya Wofford, and our VLT for this commitment to transparency and trust. God is glorified in each of your gifts. May we be faithful to the one who is Faithful.

Every Wednesday, 6 - 7:00 pm

If you would like to learn to knit or crochet a prayer shawl, you can learn in this group. All supplies are provided.

The prayer shawl group delivered or mailed 11 blessed shawls in August. The prayer shawl is a reminder to those going through challenging times that they & their families are prayed for by Second B’ers.

If you know someone that could use the comfort and blessing of a prayer shawl, or have questions, you can contact Ruan or Vickie at the email addresses below. Or just be here Wednesday and start a prayer shawl!

Vision Leadership Team

Although the CDC recommendations are more thorough, we are essentially asking that during this time of higher risk for COVID-19 in Lubbock County, please resume wearing masks at Second B as a safety precaution.

Thank you for your grace and understanding through this extended time of adjustment and difficulty. We pray for our church, our city and God’s beloved world. Our hope remains in the good physician who has come to heal all— mind, body and soul.
 
May the peace of Christ be with you and bless you-
2B Vision and Leadership Team
