SVCC is a Bible-believing fellowship out to make a difference in Spring Valley by sharing the peace, hope and justice of Jesus Christ. People at SVCC come from all walks of life and various backgrounds. While our Full Doctrinal Statement (read more below) will probably answer all of the major questions about what we believe, we invite you to connect with one of our pastors (firstname.lastname@example.org) to dig deeper and ask whatever questions you may have about or doctrine and teaching.
God loves kids! We always welcome children in worhsip services, but we also provide a staffed nursery. Additionally, kids up to 6th grade are dismissed for a kid-friendly message duirng the Sunday message. During the week, SVCC runs a very fun Awana club for kids K-12. Awana is an exceptional program that emphasizes Bible learning, friendships and fun.
In addition to our regular worship services on Sunday Mornings (English at 10 am and Spanish at 11:30 am), we are actively involved in our community throughout the week. On Tuesdays we provide a kids' Bible club - called Sonshine Club - at Kempton Elementary School (the largest public school in our school district and just a block from our church). On Wendesdays, we operate a club for middle schoolers at La Presa Middle School.
Our high-energy kids program, Awana. meets on Wednesday nights from 6:15-8:15. Our men's group gathers on Saturday mornings at 7 am to pray. Finally, we provide food to needy families once a month on every third Tuesday. In addition to these regular events, we hold a number of events for all ages throughout the year, including women's encouragement events, small group Bible studies, community cleanups, etc.
Everyone is encouraged to "come as you are" - just the way Jesus would probably like it. Some wear suits and ties, while most wear casual clothing such as jeans, t-shirts and sandals.
Worship and prayer is followed by a message for adults (and an optional kid's church time for kids ages 4 - 6th grade). Messages are on relevant topics from a Biblical persepctive, and delivered by Pastor Steve Babbitt or Pastor Javier Rodriguez.
Our English worship band is always in pursuit of both excellence and authenticity. Led by our very talented and very genuine lead worshipper Dustin O'Neal, you will hear a range of styles from classic hymns to rocking guitar anthems. There is only one goal of the worship at SVCC -- to sing and play to an audience of One -- the heavenly Father. We worship Him and Him alone.
Well, that's the most commonly asked stuff. There is a lot more -- but of course we'd like to meet you in person! Come visit us some time on a Sunday morning or Wednesday night. There's no obligation to commit to anything and no requirment to join the church. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible for your first visit, and if there's anything we can do to improve your experience, we'd like you to let one of our pastors know! More importantly, we'll simply be glad to meet you!
