SVCC Directory

Sunday School

The Nursery, Sunday School and ADD are canceled until further notice


The Onalaska School District has a large number of students and families who qualify for the free/reduced federal breakfast and lunch program.  Currently, 

  • 58% of Pre-K students

  • 62% of middle school students

  • 52% of high school students

qualify for this program.  We estimate that the number who qualify, but did not fill out the request form, is even higher.  Many of these students struggle to have nutritious meals available to them over the weekend.  

The Onalaska School District Food Bank will help to ensure that our students with the greatest need will have an opportunity to take food home with them over the weekend, to help sustain their growth and development. 

Students who participate in this program will benefit greatly from the generous donations we anticipate from our community and stakeholders. The school district is grateful for your assistance in helping our students with their nutritional needs.

Our Goal

To provide non-perishable weekend meals to students in need. We hope to help 100 students in grades K-12 each weekend!

The Need

Cash or food donations in the amount of $1,075 per month.

  • ($2.50/meal x 100 student’s x 4.3 weeks/month)

  • Donations of any size are appreciated; but a commitment to ongoing support will assist us with long-term planning.

Cash donations can be given to the Twin Star Credit Union in Onalaska, WA under the “Onalaska Backpack Program”.

Non-perishable food donations can be brought to the Onalaska High School during business hours.

Sample food items include:  

  • A canned entree with a pull top such as beef macaroni, spaghetti, ravioli, tuna, etc.
  • Capri Sun juice
  • ramen noodles
  • 6 oz fruit cup (apple sauce, diced fruit, etc.)
  • granola bar (we try to use something high in protein)
  • cereal

To Know Him and to Make Him Known

If we are going to know the Lord and make him known, we must be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2). 

Central to that renewing is regular time in God's word.  You’ll find two different Bible reading plans in the wall rack in the lobby.  Pick up one today and enjoy a year of being encouraged, challenged and equipped by God's inspired word.

Hallmarks of SVCC

Our Church Motto

Teaching and living the truth of God’s grace.


Our Church Purpose Statement

SVCC has a vision to minister three realities near and far.  We aim to be a place:

  • where sin-prone, sin-bound people regularly experience God’s grace, so that they might be saved and eagerly grow in Christ.
  • where grace-loved people are trained to apply relevant biblical truth, so that grace rebuilds lost foundations of spiritual, personal, family, and community life.
  • where grace-loved and truth-trained people gratefully pass along the good things in Christ that they’ve received so that the chain of grace continues unbroken.


Our Church Covenant

  • We commit ourselves, by the grace of God
  • to build up our fellow Christians.
  • to be active participants in congregational life.
  • to guard the unity and purity of the church.
  • to advance the mission of the church.


Our Church Mission Statement

Our mission is Christ’s mission – extending his kingdom by sending out his people to reach the world with his gospel.  This will be done:

  • by equipping our members to become effective disciple-makers in their personal sphere of influence.
  • by planting disciple-making churches in Lewis County, and
  • by adopting an unreached people group and laboring to see them won to Christ.
