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.
"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)
Hi, I am Jeremy Spain, the director of Men’s Ministry at Spring Valley Community Church (SVCC). I believe the purpose of men’s ministry is to empower and enable Christian men for kingdom living in the world. That is why, through various outlets and events, the men of SVCC will be provided with life experiences that will equip and assist them to become mature followers and true image bearers of Jesus Christ. Using Jesus Christ as our ultimate example of a godly life devoted to kingdom values, men will be taught about biblical manhood, equipped for biblical servanthood, encouraged towards Spirit fullness, exhorted to Christ-likeness and Christ-mindedness, and given ample opportunities to experience God’s grace found in the newness of life.
I believe in regular fellowship and the establishment of life-transforming relationships. Fellowship is a time where the building up and sustainment of authentic relationships can flourish, so that we can grow beyond the mere superficiality that so often defines today’s relationships. I believe through these intimate encounters, the men of SVCC will be able to relate more deeply and personally with themselves, others, and God. It is well stated in Scripture and throughout church history that growth in the kingdom life will not happen in isolation. So, as iron sharpens iron, the men’s ministry at SVCC will seek to be a community of brothers (adelphos) committed to one another’s mutual spiritual edification and development as we traverse the spiritual journey this side of heaven. I am committed to making whole and holy men fully dedicated to the Gospel and faithful to the Kingdom of God.
