Construction Is Underway! Construction has begun on the new Brodie campus Family Ministry Center. This is a very exciting time! While construction is underway-for the next 5 to 6 weeks--we will all need to stay away from the construction area. Please be especially attentive with kids as there will likely be hazards in the construction zone. Let’s keep this a safe work-site for all workers and SHPC family!

Honoring Our Inner Self Our God teaches us to be kind to ourselves during times of crisis. He calls upon us to treat ourselves with respect, patience, and wisdom. We are precious and deserving of special care during pain and worry. Perhaps a Stephen Minister could be of help. If you, or someone you know, could benefit from the Christian friendship and care of a Stephen Minister, please call the church office at 512892-3580
