CORONAVIRUS: SBC Action Plan

June 29, 2020

Join Us Sunday Mornings at 10 AM as our Church Family Gathers (In Person and Virtually) to Worship during this unprecedented time in history.

___________________________

In line with the governor’s “Healthy Washington–Roadmap to Recovery” and “Safe-Start Stay-Healthy” reopening initiative, SBC has set in place a comprehensive COVID-19 Exposure Control, Mitigation, and Recovery Plan. (Details available at the church).

[WATCH Pastor Simao explain our Most Current Protocol with regard to Masks — effective 02/21/21]

IMPORTANT: If you, or someone in your household, does not feel well or is exhibiting symptoms — for everyone’s safetyPLEASE STAY HOME.

Because not everyone will be able, or wish, to attend in person during this time of transition, our church is now temporarily offering “Virtual Pew” LIVE Streaming of the entire SERVICE, in addition to our regularly podcasted SERMONS.

___________________________

Another option: Your car becomes your pew!

Attend church from the SBC parking lot and worship with us from the safety and comfort of your own vehicle by tuning your car’s radio to 88.3 FM.

Receive Communion (on the first Sunday of the month) and join us for fellowship outside in the front lot following service.

But what are the these “better things” that accompany salvation???

And how do they assure us of God’s good works and faithfulness in our lives — and ultimately provide us with, what the author describes as, “full assurance of hope until the end”?

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 6:4-8

Description:

Avg Guy: Can a Christian lose their salvation???

SBC Host: Some say yes, and they use Hebrews 6 to prove their point.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us how it’s not hard to take this position.

After all, when you read the passage, it seems to describe someone who was a true Christian.

SBC logo 204x204

Avg Guy: Exactly! It says that they were “once enlightened,” had “tasted of the heavenly gift,” “were made partakers of the Holy Spirit,” “had tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come.” So what gives?

SBC Host: Context.

Avg Guy: Huh??

Being Still in the Pandemic

April 5, 2021

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a year since the Pandemic enveloped our lives. In its beginning throes, Psalm 46 was (and still is) a particular source comfort and strength for us.

Inspired by the many examples of collaborative creativity in the virtual world — knitting a sense of togetherness in this time of isolation — our church body “gathered” and read the psalm together one year ago today….

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

SBC logo 204x204

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker pinch-hits for Pastor Monty and shares a message on murmuring from the book of Numbers that should give us all pause.

If we’re honest, our critical spirit nature does nothing but reveal our utter depravity and absolute need for Him.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/14/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 5:5-10

Description:

Avg Guy: Okay… I just read Hebrews chapter 5, versus 5-10, and I have questions.

SBC Host: Let’s hear them.

Avg Guy: All right…

    1. If Jesus is God and knows all things then how can He learn obedience?
    2. What does God require by which men can be saved and have fellowship with Him?
    3. If Jesus is God and perfect, how can He be made perfect?
    4. And… What qualifies Jesus to be our Savior, anyway?

SBC Host: These are daunting questions, to be sure.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us that questions like these can leave our minds reeling if we have not acquired the theological framework to think through them.

How we answer these questions will say much about our understanding of Christ – the only Savior.

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 5:1-6

Description: What does it mean that Christ is our Great High Priest? And how is His priesthood different from the priesthood of, say, Aaron?

These and other questions must be answered in order for believers to have assurance of their acceptance before God.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us that our assurance begins and ends in the person and work of Jesus Christ…

SBC logo 204x204

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/21/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 4:14-16

Description: We know that Jesus was tempted as we are tempted… and yet, He was without sin.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and points out that Jesus’s temptation, and corresponding sinlessness, is supposedly mentioned in the book to help us draw near to Him, for He sympathizes.

The problem is that Jesus’ sinlessness makes us think Him unapproachable.

The question before us is…what are we missing???

…It is purposeful.

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and shows that not only does God’s word reveal God to us, but it reveals us… the innermost secrets of our hearts — exposed.

Ultimately, for each one of us, God’s word will either be a word of PROMISE or a word of JUDGEMENT.

Christ Our Sabbath Rest [Hebrews 4:1-11]

January 31, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/31/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 4:1-11

Description: Their wandering the desert floor for forty years not only provides us with a great WARNING, but a great PROMISE: the promise of rest.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Hebrews and reminds us that even Joshua and Caleb — the two faithful spies of the Wilderness Generation who were able to enter Canaan — did not receive this “promised rest.”

SBC logo 204x204

For it would be the “Greater Joshua,” Jesus the Son of God, Who would be the Champion for His people and complete His work to enter into His rest; and we, if we are partakers of Him, of Christ — having received the Good News — enter, in faith, into this rest that only He alone deserves.

January 24, 2021

SBC frame line - current sermons

Sermon Notes

Date: 01/24/2021

Preacher: Josh Peglow, guest preacher

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 1-13

Description: If podcasting is roughly defined as “time-shifted media,” and modern scholars believe that the book of Hebrews was actually a sermon instead of a text… then one could argue that the Bible’s “delivery” of the book of Hebrews is one of the earliest podcasts!! [spoof “Epistle Podcast”]

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ Josh Peglow answers the last minute call to stand behind the pulpit as Pastor Monty nurses a disabling case of lumbago and shares with us that the public reading of an entire text in this way was how it was done in the earliest days of the church.

SBC logo 204x204

Actually, all the New Testament epistles were meant to be read aloud to the congregation and then passed on to neighboring churches… a practice that promoted a unity of understanding in that together everyone could receive the message, The Word of God.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/17/2021

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Hebrews

Key Text: Hebrews 3:12-19

Description: If he was known for anything, the Pharaoh of the Exodus was known for his hardened heart that was calloused to hear the word of the Lord. This hardened heart cost him his kingdom and his son… and finally his life. 

SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and tells the sad continuation of this story: even the entire Israelite generation — the Hebrews who witnessed Pharaoh’s demise — would not believe the word of the Lord either and hardened their hearts as well.

Pharaoh perished in the Red Sea, while they were buried in the wilderness… on the wrong side of Jordan.

And therefore, the child of God must be on guard to desire and pursue true Christian wisdom which eschews prideful strife and promotes peace.
