In-Person Services Canceled March 15 - March 25, 2020

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

Out of an abundance of caution, and due to the difficulty of maintaining health guidelines from government agencies (6 feet of separation), our church leadership has decided to cancel regular Sunday morning services and Wednesday evening activities through March 25, 2020. At that time, we will re-evaluate public health recommendations and determine when it is appropriate to resume regular activities.

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. Feel free to call him anonymously.

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

Suggested Daily Prayer During Coronavirus Quarantine 2020

Children's Worship Bulletin Free Activities

"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)


  • Debt-Free Giving (Matthew 17.24-27)

    A Lesson

    Sons are free.
    "Then the sons are free " (v26)

    Sons still sacrifice.
    "Nevertheless, lest we offend them..." (v27)

    The Point: We do not make sacrifices under compulsion, but out of compassion.

    Respect and concern for the welfare of others before ourselves is one of the hallmarks of genuine Christian life. This means that we do not demand our rights as sons and daughters of God, but each day we gladly take up our role, deliberately carrying out our Father's business of compassion, mercy and restoration.

    "Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for the man who eats with offense. It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak." (Romans 14.20-21)

    A Miracle

    Weird things happen all the time when God is involved.
    "When you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money."(v27)

    Peter had to do some work.
    "Go to the sea, cast in a hook." (v27)

    The Point: God's provision requires our participation (usually)

    Fascinating fact: this is the only miracle of Jesus that involves money.  What's even more interesting is that Jesus didn't pull a coin out from behind  Peter's ear! Peter's participation was required in order for God to reveal the  fullness of His strength. Note that God could have provided in a different way,  but specifically chose to honor Peter's work.

    "For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat." (2 Thess 3.10) 

    Take It Home

    What privileges do you claim that prevent you from serving?

    What provision from God have you missed by refusing to participate in His work?
