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.
Part 2 of a 3-part series dealing with a difficult question:
“What happens when God doesn’t meet my expectations?”
Not the Messenger We Expected (Matthew 11:7-10)
Not a “reed” blown by the wind of pop culture or opinion polls. Not a “sheik in pajamas” who sells his voice to the highest bidder. John was the greatest Prophet—a man rejected by men, but steadfast in his commitment to God, just like Elijah.
Part one of a 3-part series dealing with a difficult question:
“What happens when God doesn't meet my expectations?”
John the Baptist is facing serious discouragement, doubt and despair. This makes sense given John’s situation — imprisoned, rejected, and soon to be executed for following God’s call to herald Jesus as the Messiah.
The Root of the Problem: Misunderstanding Jesus We must be careful not to fall into the trap of assuming that we “get it” when it comes to knowing the fullness of God’s plans.
