In-Person Services Canceled This Week

A live stream will be offered each Sunday at 10am.

Pursuant to the Governor's order banning groups of 10 or more, our church leadership has decided to offer Sunday morning services online. Wednesday evening activities are on hold until the order allows for groups of 50 to gather again. Some of our Bible studies have continued to meet online as well. Our food pantry, Joseph's Storehouse, is also fully operational.

Please note, the leaders of SVCC recognize that this is a time when we should not be casual, but instead be even more proactive about interceding in prayer and deed for our world and for one another. The devil never misses an opportunity to stoke fear, loneliness, depression, and division. We are deeply troubled by the prejudicial lines of racism and poverty this disease has so quickly exposed in our society. Even though our church may not be meeting in a large group setting, we will be praying harder than ever, encouraging one another more than ever, and standing up for all of those in need - of any faith, color or social standing - more than ever.

If you are struggling with fear, loneliness, or depression at this time, our Pastor has made himself available just to talk and pray with anyone. Pastor Steve's personal cell phone is 619-277-2671, and he'd love to hear from you!

Most of all, we pray that you will know that God is greater than any adversity the world brings our way.

    Better Gift Ideas

    Five Simple Gifts

    These are modeled on God’s love for us.
    Words of Affirmation
    (1 Thessalonians 5:11, Proverbs 12.25)

    Quality Time
    Romans 1:8–12, Hebrews 10:25

    (Matthew 2:11; Matthew 7:9–11)

    Physical Touch
    (1 Peter 5:14; Luke 7:38)

    Acts of Service
    (James 2.14-18, James 2.26)

    When given properly, these kinds of gifts don’t break, don’t go out of style, and show the world what Christ’s love is like.

    A Word to the Wise: Choose Wisely

    Not every gift above works for every person. Most of us have a type of gift that “fills our tank” more than others. Learn the language of your beloved.

    “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work… Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”
    (2 Corinthians 9:6-8, 15)

    New King James Version (NKJV)

    1Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”

    3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.

    5 So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:


    ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.’”

    7 Then Herod, when he had secretly called the wise men, determined from them what time the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the young Child, and when you have found Him, bring back word to me, that I may come and worship Him also.”

    9 When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. 11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

    12 Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.
