Welcome 

Welcome to Stony Brook Community Church!

Here at SBCC, we extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, or even of a different faith. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny-as-a-rail, or could afford to lose a few pounds. We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli, Steven Tyler, or if you can’t carry a note in a bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope or haven’t been to church since little Joey’s baptism.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NFL dads, starving artists, students, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food-eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or are still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or if you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion”: we’ve been there, too (and we’re not always that organized). If you blew all your offering money at OTB, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the world is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are only here because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both (by the way, our Pastor is inked). We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throats as kids, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts… and you!

 

SBCC VISION STATEMENT:
