Faith is a word that gets thrown around quite a bit. Depending on who you talk to, the definition of this word might shift. Some may scoff at it, while others will claim to own it. But there is a book in the Bible written by a man named James that is all about faith at its core. And while it often packs a punch, it helps to define a word that is incredibly important because the Apostle Paul says you can’t have salvation without it. Join us on Sunday mornings at 10am as we study the book of James in a series called Faith Working.
In the event of an inclement weather situation (e.g. hurricane, snow, ice, flooding, etc.) the Senior Pastor will determine whether or not Seaford Baptist Church will cancel Sunday morning services. Every effort will be made to ensure the decision to cancel services is made with adequate time to ensure all members have an opportunity to be informed.
In the case of Wednesday evening or other weekly activities the policy is as follows: If York County schools dismiss early or are canceled due to a weather related event the evening church activities are canceled.
A huge thank you to all who were involved in this year’s Christmas production, Night of Hope! What a wonderful
weekend of sharing the gospel through the vehicle of the arts. We pray that hearts and lives were touched through this program.

We live in a broken world, surrounded by broken lives and broken relationships. This probably isn’t news to anyone. The question is: What was God’s design for this place to begin with? Furthermore, if there is a grand design, how do we get back to it? These are the questions we will deal with through the lens of Jesus’ message as the New Year begins this January. Join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10am for a conversation about life called 3 Circles.
