Small Business Samaritans Featured Friday
Next Meeting: September 29, 2023 - 8am Friday
SBS Featured Friday meetings are hosted by Phillip Saxton. Mr. Saxton says, “Business owners need an organization that is dedicated to their success. It is absolutely necessary for business owners to grow, be encouraged and interact with fellow business owners to discuss ideas and challenges of day to day operations.”
SBS Featured Friday is a small business networking group that meets each Friday at 8am. We started our meetings in Dacula, GA and after several years, moved to The 1818 Club in Duluth Georgia. Because of the current COVID-19 crisis, we started having Zoom meetings. In 2023, along with our Zoom meetings, we will have four in person gatherings. These in-person gatherings will not only promote business development, but are also designed for business owners and operators to have fun.
Over the years, hundreds of business owners have benefited from attending our weekly one hour meetings. Our meetings are free. To receive an invite to attend, complete the ‘contact us’ form and include your email address.

SBS FF 2023 Theme: ‘
‘Why walk alone when you can walk with a friend? Our promise is to help one another’.
Business people are called
The meetings are denominationally inclusive and politically neutral and geared to business people sharing their faith in Jesus Christ and how that works in the marketplace. You do not have to be a Christian to attend, we just want people to know that we use Christian principles in business discussions. We believe that all business entrepreneurs are called by God to provide goods and services to our community. Businesses are to provide economic support and jobs for people living in the community. You do not have to be a Christian or even believe in God to start and operate a business. God uses all of us in the accomplishment of his purposes.
Many of our meetings feature a personal testimony. Join business owners and managers for our expanded teaching & fellowship events.
We expect to continue to have Zoom meetings well into 2024 because of the convenience and protection from COVID. We will plan on having in person fellowships and meetings during 2023. These in-person meetings will be announced.
Dear God, we observe that the world is changing and therefore business is also changing. People are using the same old tools, in the same old way, generating questionable results. We pray for your insight in doing things entirely differently with an eye toward generating great blessings and changing lives. We start with our dedication to you and ask that you walk hand in hand with us. Amen.
Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:18-19
Weekly Teaching Moment
2023 will be a year of accomplishment. Our theme this year is: ‘Why Walk Alone When you can walk with a Friend’.
‘Think Of Things That Never Were ‘
One of the things that business people should do is to use those men/women who can dream of things that never were, following the suggestion of John Kennedy. However, to find these people is like finding a great pearl and going and selling all that you have to acquire it.
We will develop these concepts and gain better understanding as to how to apply them in our business.
