Pastor Scott has been praying for the last 3 years about merging the SGBF Ministry with another qualified Ministry or hiring a new Pastor. Due to his health challenges the past 3 years & his wife's ongoing battle with cancer, his desire to retire has increased. After many attempts were made to accomplish this, the Lord finally gave him His answer! SGBF is merging with Chain of Lakes Community Bible Church (Lake Villa) effective today. Each congregation voted on this strategic plan & both congregations approved the merger.  The SGBF church building will close for a couple of months as a renovation takes shape for the Children's Ministries. The Food Pantry will be closed but CLCBC does have a Food Pantry at their Lake Villa location if you need assistance.  We are asking the SGBF congregation to attend CLCBC during the temporary closure of SGBF & anyone else interested in visiting a "a place that challenges and equips you to become a Fully Devoted Follower of Christ who makes a difference for eternity." 

We are hoping to have a "Grand Opening" in Spring Grove in the Fall. For more information, please contact CLCBC or check their website.
