New Elder

The elders are delighted to announce that Steven Johnson has satisfactorily completed the three-month probation period for new elders.  The congregation now has 1 Week for input. 

Missing Something?

Lost and found items are on a table in the foyer, across from the Welcome Table.  Please check to see if there might be anything there belonging to you or your family. 



Nursery Need

In the short-term, we are unable to offer nursery during the first Sunday of each month for either service

If you're interested in helping to meet this need, please contact Cynthia Holmes (360-978-6309).

Christmas Shoeboxes 

  Samaritans Purse Logo

Two Hundred Sixty-Six!  266 precious children around the world (we don't know where they are YET) will receive a Shoebox filled with notes, lots of needed items, but mostly filled with LOVE from a mission-minded church in Onalaska, WA. 

That's right! Shoestring Community Church with its generous hearts is sending out 266 Shoe Boxes on the 19th!!  A deep-hearted thank-you to each of you loving people who helped make this happen. 

OCC collection is this coming week (Nov. 12-19). Our doors will be open for select times every day - and if you have a couple extra hours, we would love a bit of help. We almost have our schedule full - but two days still need one more person. Call, text or email Becky (360-880-2726) if you have a heart to do this for collection week. 

Please bring back the "Change A Life" cups this week, which all go towards shipping costs of the boxes.  We love you and thank you for gluing yourselves to this OCC ministry.




Greeters and Ushers

Our greeters and ushers welcome visitors and regular attenders to SVCC each Sunday.  Would you like to serve in this way?  We have a few openings for ushers and greeters right now. 

Please contact Leon Gattis, (360) 978-4488. 



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.
