Attention Ladies Who Love Babies!

We are hosting a double baby shower on Saturday, February 9th from 10 until noon to honor and celebrate DeeDee and Justin Watilo’s son and Sarah and Steven Johnson’s son.

We will be having a brunch with a joyful time of fellowship and gifts. Both of these ladies need gifts for a little boy, including diapers (no newborn diapers) and clothing.

If you’d like to join with other ladies and bless them with a larger gift, please contact Becky Jacobson at 880-2726 or Susan Wickert at 978-5131 for ideas/suggestions. If you would prefer to give a money gift, there will be an opportunity for that also at the shower with a money jar for each baby. Come and celebrate!!!!! 



Thank you to those who have responded to the need for new nursery volunteers beginning in January. 

We need  two volunteers on the third Sunday of the month during the first service.

If you'd like to show love in a practical way to children ages  0-3 and their parents, and can commit one service per month for the calendar year, please contact Cynthia Holmes (360 978 6309). 

We interview and do background checks on all who work with minors. Thank you for prayerfully considering joining the nursery team!


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.

Annual Meeting

Our 2019 Annual Church Meeting will be on Sunday, January 27, during the Sunday School hour (9:35 – 10:35 am). 

We will celebrate what God has done in 2018, and consider some new opportunities and challenges for 2019.

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.

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.
