WHEN YOU VISIT
It’s clear to us (because we’ve all been there), that people come to God from all different places in life. Jesus invites everyone to come to Him, and we invite everyone to join us at SVC. We hope you can join us as we seek to love God, love people and be a beacon of hope in our community.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We dress casually. Jeans and a t-shirt are fine, but if you prefer to dress traditionally and make the rest of us look bad, go ahead 🙂
We like to have music that reflects modern worship while still maintaining a connection to our roots. While our style is more contemporary we appreciate the tradition that got us here.
We want you to understand the Bible, see how it meets your life and live differently by God’s strength. Because of that, we will stay true to the context of the Bible while explaining what it looks like in life.
We meet for about an hour. The service is a blend of music, a sermon, and some other elements depending on the day.
LOVE GOD • LOVE PEOPLE
Love God: Christianity is simply about connecting people with God. If what the Bible says is true about God’s incredible efforts and sacrifices to reach humanity, then our highest love is from God, and our truest purpose is to love Him in response.
Love People: His love changes us. It inspires us to love others in a way that strives to imitate His love for us. It’s about being gracious. It’s about seeking a truly authentic community where we want other people to love God (see above). No one’s perfect, but as we strive to love others, the church will make an impact on this world that is worth being part of.
As a member of the EFCA, we align ourselves with the association’s statement of faith.
