  • Wednesday Night Schedule Change

    Important schedule change!


    Everyone is busy. Our lives seem to go from crazy to chaotic in the blink of an eye. We are making an effort to take a little of the stress out of Wednesday evenings. Starting on Wednesday, August 28th we will shift our Wednesday night schedule back a bit. We will begin by serving a delicious and affordable Family Dinner from 5:00pm - 6:15pm, then our Wednesday activities will begin at 6:30pm. Our hope is that many more families will be able to come be a part of the community on Wednesday nights!


    Please help spread the word!

  • Wednesday Nights this Fall

    Wednesday Supper, 5:00-6:15 pm
    Come at 5 o’clock and enjoy a home-style meal on Wednesday nights during the fall semester. Meals are $6/adult and $4/child through 5th grade. ($24 household maximum.) 

    Women’s Prayer Time, 5:30-6:15 pm
    Change the course of your week by meeting with other women to pray. Join Women's Ministry Director Lauren Botts from 5:30 to 6:15 pm in Room A-202/203 to pray for our church, our community and one another. The group will release in time for everyone to attend the Wednesday Core class. Women who are meeting for prayer can check in their birth-5th grade children in the SV Kids area at 5:25 pm. For more information, email lauren@sv.church.

    Core Class, 6:30-7:30 pm “Marriage Matters-A Biblical Guide To Relationships” 
    Every 13 seconds, there is one divorce in America. That equates to 277 divorces per hour, 6,646 divorces per day, 46,523 divorces per week, and 2,419,196 divorces per year. If that doesn't shock you, what will? For 11 weeks this fall, we will be learning how to take a Biblical approach to marriage and relationships. Whether you're single, married, or widowed, this class can benefit everyone! 


    Core Kids, 6:30-7:30 pm
    While adults attend Core Class, our children will have a special opportunity to dive deeper into our faith by attending "Core Kids." This 11-week study of the Christian faith dives to the core of a Godly life by examining six "seeds" that help grow a deeper walk with Christ. Scripture, Prayer, Worship, Missions, Serving, and Evangelism will all be explored on an age appropriate level with fun activities, songs and challenges to complete at home. Each week the children will go home with habit-building challenges that will motivate the children to invest in their spiritual walk daily and help parents become the primary spiritual leader for their children. For children that are three and potty trained up to 5th grade whenever Core Classes are in session. Childcare is available for birth-2 years.

    Student Connect, 6:30-7:30 pm
    At SV Students we want students to encounter Jesus where they are and we do that with an atmosphere designed specifically for high school and middle school students. Wednesday nights are perfect for students to connect with others their age. Doors open at 6:00 pm. 

    Choir, 6:30-7:45 pm
    There is something special about joining together with one voice! Our Worship Choir helps to lead worship in our 9:00 a.m. Classic Service, as well as special events such as Christmas and Easter. We rehearse on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm in the Choir Room. Contact emory@sv.church for more info.

    Serve at the Good Friday Experience

    This come-and-go experience is the depiction of the major events leading up to Christ's crucifixion. The free event is a great discipleship tool for families of all ages as it is not too graphic for children. The creative self-guided tour takes less than 45 minutes with booklets to explain the events for all age levels. As guests move through the stations, they see, smell, taste, and touch as they learn about the days leading up to the crucifixion. This year, families with children will be given a Family Activity Idea that will focus on the resurrection as they leave. Invite your friends, family, and co-workers...so many come each year and have such a moving experience that draws them to Christ.

    If you would like to serve at the Good Friday Experience CLICK HERE.

    You can also contact Sara Wilson at slwilson83@gmail.com, call church office at 270.765.7822, or sign up at the kiosk outside of the Worship Center.

    Hope for the Holidays

    Luke 2:8–18 (NASB95) — 8 In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 “This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

    Most of us love the Christmas season. It is a time for family and friends. We give and receive gifts. We eat together and have get-togethers where we eat cookies and sweets and big meals.

    All of this sounds good but when we go below the surface of the holiday season, the realities of our lives have a way of pushing the holiday trimmings to the side and replacing them with the underlying struggles in our lives. We don’t like to talk about the pain we experience. In fact, we'd like to push those thoughts aside and pretend they aren't happening.

    Broken relationships

    Even during the Christmas holidays, relationships remain one of our biggest challenges. They sometimes break and cause our hearts to shatter. Or they can be repaired and restored when we learn we can lean on Christ for the needed assistance.

    Failing marriages

    Marriages continue to be the most important relationships in the church. When the couples walk in-Christ, they can be a testimony of the difference He can make in their relationship. At the same time, many marriages still struggle, falter and crack apart leaving broken and stunned bodies in the wake of that splitting.

    Spiraling Finances

    Christ-centered families can find stability in their finances when they realize everything is His including their finances. However, other families who try to go-it-alone can find themselves facing earthquake-like struggles when they focus finances on their own will and wants.

    Internal Struggles

    Our walk with Christ can be such a blessing during the holidays. It can give us encouragement and hope to work on those personal struggles and character flaws that cause us pain and problems. But, when those bad behaviors are left unaddressed, they can cause destructive ripples through the relationships, circumstances and events in all areas of our lives.

    Loss of a Loved One

    Death still crashes in on us destroying the very relationships we cherish. But for those of us who are Christ-followers, we mourn like everyone does, however our mourning is not the same as those who have no hope. Christ is our hope. He comforts our mourning hearts. And we find additional hope in the new life we see in the birth of babies. Just like that scene around the manger where those shepherds found hope for the future in Christ Jesus.

    Feelings of Hopelessness

    When I read the passage above the shepherds were living and working in the darkness of the night. That reminds me of how we can live in darkness of our world when Christ is not at the center of our lives. Darkness has a way of confusing us and robbing us of our hope in the midst of that darkness. Darkness makes it difficult for us to see life clearly and find our direction.

    There is Hope

    But something happened to the shepherds that night long ago. The glory of the Lord lit up the skies and their lives. As we move forward in these holidays, difficulties and struggles will continue to shatter lives. People will continue to face all of the struggles the world throws at us. And, like the shepherds we will be faced with the choice of darkness versus the light found in a personal relationship with Jesus. The choice is ours to make. We can face life on our own, seeking our own will and trying to fulfill every need our hearts and minds can think of. Or, we can surrender our lives to Him and walk in-Him daily. We can find help, healing and hope in Him. He can allow Christ to change our pain into joy and our failures into hopefulness.

    My prayer for each of us this Christmas season is that like the shepherds we run to the Savior and let Him make the difference in our lives that He made in the lives of the shepherds. All it takes is taking that first step. Life will go on and we will have difficulties and struggles, but Jesus can be our hope no matter what we face.

    Merry Christmas in-Him,

    Pastor Ray

    Dedication Sunday

    We are excited to worship with you this Sunday in our new Worship Center for our Dedication service! 

    In case you missed it, this Sunday will look a little different...
     
    Not only will we be in our new building, but we will also only be having one service at 10:45am. And, the cafe will be open from 9-10:30 for you to come and have breakfast.

    Because this is such a special occasion, there will be no small groups, but we will have childcare for ages 2 and under.

    It's going to be a great day! See you on Sunday!
