Welcome to Starke Community Church - We are a church affiliated with the General Counsel of the Assemblies of God, but more importantly than that we are a body of believers from all walks and stages of life. Young, old, rich, poor, black, white, longtime churchgoers and first time visitors. SCC is a place for everyone to come together and fellowship. We strive to be a loving and caring community of believers all united for a common goal, to experience and share the love of Jesus Christ.
The vision for SCC started in Jacksonville, FL in 2012 when God put a burden for the people of Starke on the heart of Al Whiddon, a longtime children’s pastor at one of the area’s most prominent churches. After being in children’s ministry for almost 20 years, Pastor Al alongside his wife, Robin, their children: Cody, Kyle and Katie was obedient to call of God and the ground work for SCC began.
So at the beginning of fall 2012, Pastor Al began to put into place the plan that God had put on his heart. He found a building, a group of great volunteers, and a handful of believers who had the same vision and they all got to work. It was not always easy, but everything that was in God’s plan was brought to fruition and on November 18th, 2012 Starke Community Church held its first service. Since then God has grown SCC in both believers and favor and it’s all because of our mission and God’s desire for us to be a blessing to the Community of Starke.
On March 21, 2015 Starke Community Church hosted "Sermon on the Mount" as a community outreach. We all grabbed our cowboy hats and boots to be part of a memorable event. Below are some scenes from that evening for you to enjoy.
On April 4, 2015 Starke Community Church hosted a community Easter egg hunt. Thanks to all who helped make this event possible.
