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.

"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)

    Hospitality Doesn’t Come Naturally

    Yet Jesus says our reward will be determined by our hospitality. No exception for poverty, BTW. A cup of cold water is about as basic as you can get!
    (See the story of Elijah and the Widow: 1 Kings 17:8-15)

    The Mystery Guest

    Jesus says that when we show hospitality even to one of his “little ones” we are welcoming Him (and therefore, God the Father).

    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)

    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)

    The Call is Given to All (Matthew 10:1-4)

    How quickly we exclude ourselves and others!

    “But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.”
    (Ephesians 4:7)

    “For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them…”
    (Romans 12.4-6a)
