Small Business Samaritans Featured Friday

Next Meeting: December 9, 2022 - 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. Later in  2021, along with our Zoom meetings, we will have in person gatherings.

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. 

Hundreds of business owners have benefited greatly from regular attendance and participation in SBS FF.

SBS FF 2022 Theme: ‘We stand on the shoulders of giants. We operate on Faith. We follow our calling’.

 

 

Business people are called

business professionals praying together

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 2022 because of the convenience and protection from COVID. We will plan on having in person fellowships and meetings during 2022. These in-person meetings will be announced.

Weekly Prayer

Dear Father, thank you for your help, your blessings and your support in 2022. We look forward to 2023 as we continue to work towards bringing joy and honor to your kingdom while we serve our customers and our community. Father, we are excited about the future and we shall endeavor to bring goodness to all. Amen.

 

 

Weekly Scripture

Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11

 

 

 

 

Weekly Quote

“Confucius held that if there was one word that could serve as a guide throughout one’s life, it should be “forgiveness.” He said: “Do not do to others what you don’t want to be done to you.” The “forgiveness” he referred to, means putting oneself in the position of others, and refraining from forcing others to do what one does not want to do. This is a basic principle for conducting oneself in life and dealing with affairs.”

 

 

Weekly Teaching Moment

2023 will be a year of accomplishment. Our ‘Samaritans of Greatness’ will share how they will meet their calling as business people serving customers & our community.

Great Business Secrets

Over the next 10 weeks, we are going to carefully examine the following 10 business secrets. This will lead to great discussions, personal growth and successful businesspeople.

  1. Have a positive relationship with money
  2. Put your business calling before yourself
  3. Be an owner not an employee
  4. Don’t do to other people what you don’t want done to you.
  5. Do unto others what you would like other people to do for you.
  6. Be honest
  7. Actively manage your ‘cash-flow’.
  8. Take one day of the week to rest
  9. Support and help others
  10. Trust God

“Confucius held the view that a person should help others to attain the goals they are starving toward; if he does not want others to treat him in a certain way, he himself should be the first not to treat others that way. In short, you try to understand and treat others by putting yourself in their shoes. Before doing anything, you should think about how you would do it if you were in the same position as others. This way of thinking will most likely result in a fairly correct solution to any problem.”
