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)

 

  • 5 Faith-Limiting Assumptions (Matthew 13.53-57)

    “Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works?”
    They knew the answer — "God!" But they could not get around their false assumptions -- and therefore severely limited God’s blessings.

    5 Faith-Limiting Assumptions

    “I know the full story.”

    Not really -- they only knew half the story. Joseph was not Jesus’ dad!  We don't often know the backstory.
    “Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7.1)

    “Your future is written by your past.”

    Family history is not a limitation to God. The future is not a slave to the past. Your future is written by God, who can write any future He wants.

    “I don’t have an answer, therefore there must be no answer.”

    Just because you don't have the answer doesn't mean there isn't one. Absence of a clear answer is called “mystery.” Mystery is not the absence of truth; it is truth that exceeds our perception.
    “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5.7)

    “I am wise enough to understand God.”

    No one can ever fully know God's ways.
    “Then Job answered the Lord and said: ‘I know that You can do everything,
    And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.
    You asked, ‘Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?’
    Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,
    Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.’” (Job 42.1-3)

    “I can't say ‘yes’ before I know every detail.”

    Analysis can lead to paralysis. Faith, by definition, requires a leap. You don't know everything happening on the roadways before you get on them in the morning. You don't know everything about your spouse before you day "I do." We take leaps of faith all the time.
    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11.1)

    Who Limits Jesus’ Work in Your Life?

    Is it Jesus?  I don't think so. Is it your family or other people? I don't think they could stop God if they tried. That leaves one person --  you.
    Have you let your assumptions rob you of God’s blessings?  Why not lay them down? There is one way to let God break though the limits you place on Him.
    “And he (Abraham) believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.” (Genesis 15.6)

    Then We Shall Know in Full

    “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. “ (1 Corinthians 13.12)
