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)

 

  • The Great Commission - Matthew 28.11-20

    Today we conclude our journey through the gospel according to Saint Matt. We have spent over two years in this study, and we have hopefully encountered Jesus for who He is. Sometimes He was surprising. Sometimes He was comforting. But, according to Matthew, He is always the Son of God and the lover of our souls. Matthew finishes with his account of some of the final words of Jesus -- the Great Commission. (Of course, the FINAL final words of His earthly ministry are recorded in Acts Chapter 1)..

  • Cost of Discipleship

    All Self-Seeking is Self-Loss

    The Bargain:

    Easy living for an extraordinary life

    “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
    (John 10:10)

    Safety for significance
    “I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church”
    (Colossians 1:24)

  • A Call To Courage

    Losing Truth, Losing Touch

    Confidence in any absolute today is seen as arrogance. Vague openness about everything is seen as humility.

    In this time of relativism, it is very costly to be confident in what Christ has “whispered in our ears”, and much easier to scratch the world’s ears only where they itch.

    True Grit

    Jesus fuels our courage in the face of criticism and persecution with these truths in today’s passage:

    1. When we’re persecuted, we’re bound together with Him (Matthew 10:25)

  • Sending Out the Twelve

    Temporary Instructions, Timeless Principles

    These instructions were unique, and do not necessarily apply today.
    (See Matthew 28.19-20)
    However, certain principles found in these instructions still apply.

    Temporary instructions: Where to Go

    “These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
    (Matthew 10:5-6)

  • Getting Into Shape part 2

    You are hand—crafted… one-of-a-kind!
    There has never been — and there will never be — another YOU.
    “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
    (Psalm 139:13-14a)

    Your best shot at making your biggest impact comes when you
    1) Discover what you were made to do and 2) do that very well.

    The Benefits of Serving 92% said serving in ministry positively influenced their spiritual growth. 63% said involvement in ministry is equally important to their spiritual growth as Bible study and prayer. (24% said serving was a more significant factor in their spiritual growth than Bible study and prayer) Over half (58%) of those not actively ministering to others felt “not satisfied “ or only “somewhat satisfied” with their spiritual growth.
