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)
Our children’s ministry team strives to partner with parents to teach children to love and serve God. Our teaching team is comprised of talented, experienced teachers who love working with kids.
Parents are a child’s first and primary teacher. However, as a mother of three, I know I don’t always have all the answers. I am so thankful to be part of a community that supports me in my efforts to teach my kids about Christ and His passionate love for them and their community.
On Sundays, all ages participate in singing and worship together in the main service. Before Pastor Steve’s message, children are dismissed for Kids’ Church. Our Kids’ Church format intentionally brings grades K-6 together for lessons. In this setting, our older kids are given opportunities to practice leadership. Often they are partnered with a younger buddy who they help with various activities throughout the lesson.
Your children are SAFE. Anyone who supervises children at SVCC has been fingerprinted. Additionally, there are always two unrelated adults working together as a teaching team. Of course, parents are always welcome to sit in and observe.
Moses admonished the entire community with these words (not just parents)… “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-7)
At SVCC, we are committed to work together with families to teach children to love and serve God.
