An Evening of Soup and Song 

Please join us today at 5 pm here at the church to sing Christmas carols, read through the Christmas story, and enjoy a delicious soup dinner together!

Also today, prior to Soup and Song, the GO Team invites those who are interested and available to meet from 3:45-4:45 pm in the room across from the nursery. 

We will pray together about the Scott family’s potential move to a new city, and lift up recent prayer requests from other missionaries we support as well.




Combined Service Christmas & New Year's Eves

We will be combining into a single morning worship service on Christmas Eve (Dec 24th) and New Year’s Eve (Dec 31st).  Service time will be 10am both Sundays and there will be no adult or children’s classes, or nursery, either of those days.  We pray this will allow families to worship together on these special days and give our teachers a welcomed break . . . as well as give all of us a chance to worship & fellowship with members of the SVCC family who attend the other service time.

Grief Share Surviving the Holidays

 A Surviving the Holidays seminar will be held on Sunday, November 12th from  2 to 3:30 pm here at Shoestring.  You may not be grieving the loss of a loved one, but holidays can be tough for those who are.  If you are alert to such people, this can be a great opportunity to reach out to our community.  This seminar helps grieving people learn how to navigate through the holidays.  Call or text Bob Jerke at at (360)983-8707, or email , or email Judy Parks at  

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.
