March 29, 2020 LiveStream Begins Here at 10am Pacific

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)

  • The Narrow Way

    Missed the Exit


    We’d Like More Choices, Please
    But Jesus makes it plain — there are only two sides of the fence.
    “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil”
    (Deut. 30:15 — cf Deut. 30:19, Jer 21:8)


    Two Paths
    The easy has no boundary, no respect, no hope.
    The narrow has straight lines, rights-of-way, and abundant hope.
    “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.”
    (Psalm 1:3-4
    )

    Two Gates
    The wide allows all the baggage you want.
    The narrow requires us to leave everything behind.
    “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
    (Mark 10:25)


    Two Destinations
    The end (destruction)
    The beginning (life)
    “Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.” (Revelation 22:14-15)

    Cross Examination
    It’s tempting to use this passage to back up a theological position regarding others — and on some level that might be appropriate. But Christ’s first purpose with this teaching was to lead us to self-examination and to an abiding. personal decision of faith.

    Which Gate Will You Enter?
    Which path will you walk? Which destination will you choose?




    New King James Version (NKJV)

    13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
