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 Dragnet (Matthew 13:47-50)

    According to the Scriptures

    Matthew 13:47-50 NKJV - “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

  • The Cost of Discipleship (Matthew 13:44-46)

    Matthew 13:44-46: "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it."

    The Kingdom is PRECIOUS

    Lives are given in the pursuit of hidden treasure & fine pearls.

    The gates of the new City of God in Revelation are made of pearl.

  • The Sower's Seed (Matthew 13.1-9,18-23)

    Seed & Soil

    Growth requires both good seed and quality soil.

    The seed—the message of Jesus—is always good.

    The soil—our hearts—unfortunately, is not always ready.

    Four Soils, Four Hearts

    The Hard Path: Does not even consider the message.
    The message goes in one ear and out the other.

    The Rocky Soil: Hears & receives, but can’t take the heat.
    The stones of persecution and sacrifice prove too much to bear.

  • Hidden in Plain Sight (Matthew 13.10-17)

    Matthew 13 is a compilation of wonderful parables. Before we dive into them in the coming weeks, I want to jump ahead to Jesus' explanation for His use of parables.

    What is a Parable?

    Literally, it means to “throw at” -- basically throwing to seemingly disconnected ideas together.

    A parable takes something familiar and compares it to something unfamiliar.

    It is the original “mashup!”

    Why Parables?

    Why not simply explain everything literally and be done with it? Here are just a few potential reasons ...
