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.

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1.9)

    Your Yardstick is Broken

    1. It’s Not Long Enough
    Our concept of God’s righteousness is simply not high enough. Our concept of humanity’s brokenness is simply not deep enough. To condemn another is to play God.
    “There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?”
    (James 4.12)

    2. It’s Really a Boomerang
    “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
    (Mt 7.2, Mk 4.24, Lk 6.38)

    “Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.”
    (Rom. 2.1)

    How to Operate on an Eye

    Jesus isn’t endorsing specks and planks, forbidding all correction — He condemns correction of others without greater self-correction first.
    “He who keeps instruction is in the way of life, But he who refuses correction goes astray.”
    (Prov. 10.17)

    “And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all... in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth...”
    (2 Tim. 2.24-25)

    Step 1. “Remove the plank from your own eye…”
    Jesus says we must deal with our own sin and injustice first. Our lie: “He’s muleheaded… I’m steadfast.” | “She lied… I reconsidered.”
    ...“He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.”
    (John 8.7b)
    “For he who lacks these things [kindness, brotherly love] is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.”
    (2 Pet. 1.9)

    Step 2. “Remove the speck from your brother’s eye”
    In the Jesus Culture, we are responsible to seek our brother’s restoration.
    “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’ And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector. ”
    (Mt 18.15-17)

    Two Warnings

    1. Know When to Quit
    “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine...”
    (Matthew 7.6)
    “And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector. ”
    (Mt 18.17)

    2. Be Gentle
    “Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.”
    (Gal 6.1)

    If you seek revival, seek it first in your own heart.

    New King James Version (NKJV)

    1“Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

    6 “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.
