  • You're Invited!

    The whole church is invited to join us as we celebrate God's goodness and all that He's been doing the week of Vacation Bible School!

    Thursday, June 16th
    @ 5:45 pm

    Come to the Worship Center for...

    • music
    • a skit
    • watch the end of the week video 
    • see who gets to pie Mrs. Ashley in the face
    • and then walk out barefoot 

    We're asking that our church and all of our children help us give shoes to our friends at Mission Hope for Kids by leaving your shoes behind! All shoes new and gently used will be donated to Mission Hope for Kids. 

    Also, bring your offering. The money raised during the week of Vacation Bible School is going to provide a much needed water well for our friends in Nicaragua.

    Food trucks and Kona Ice will be on hand to feed us on this night. See you there!!

  • The Cafe' Experiment - Week 1

     

    Sunday, June 7th was our first experiment day for The Cafe' at Severns Valley. Overall we thought it went pretty well, especially when you consider it was something totally new and we didn't know what to expect. There was certainly a lot of curiosity and questions. This was an exciting day as we watched so many of you participate and have great comments on the food that was served. We are continuing to listen to you as we tweak The Cafe’.

    Here's a recap of that day:

    • We had a total of 253 transactions
    • The top selling items were:
    1. Coffee - 162 (not counting free refills)
    2. Adult Meals - 112
    3. Eggs - 67
    4. Bacon - 63
    5. Juice - 45
    • Total sales were - $1,205
    • Total profit - $660

    As we stated, all profit from The Cafe' will go to missions. We have tried to set the prices low to make this Cafe’ affordable for families to gather at a table to fellowship on Sunday mornings. Even in doing this, we were still able to make a profit that will go to missions.

    Over the past few years, God has opened some incredible doors of opportunity in Nicaragua. We are confident that, in the future, He will be opening up even more opportunities in other parts of the world.

    Here are just a few things that we could possibly do in Nicaragua if The Cafe' were to be open a full year:

    • We could build a church building like the one in El Platanal.
    • We could provide salaries for 14 pastors each year.
    • We could install 5 water wells.
    • We could install 20 water purification systems.
    • And there is so much more we could do!

    The next experiment day for The Cafe' is Sunday, July 5th.

    On this day we will have our new coffee equipment set up and running. Hopefully, no more delays in getting a cup of hot coffee in your hands.

    Please continue to pray for our Missions Ministry. Thank you Severns Valley for being so excited about sharing the Gospel Here, Near and Far.

  • State Missions Offering

     

    Acts 1:8 reveals both a call to serve and the power to serve. Jesus said to his disciples, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8 HCSB).

    This year’s state missions emphasis is on service. We serve as we pray for Kentucky missions. We serve as we give sacrificially. We serve as we personally share the gospel with others. We serve as we go and minister in the Name of Jesus. And in every avenue, the Power to Serve comes from the Holy Spirit.

    Where does my offering go?

    Today, the State Missions Offering (SMO) provides vital support for church planting, evangelism, and mission work in Kentucky. The lives of unborn children are being saved by crisis pregnancy centers funded by the SMO. Inmates are hearing the gospel, trusting Christ, and being baptized by local churches through ministries funded by SMO. Women in the “adult entertainment industry” are being shown a pathway to freedom and salvation by ministries funded by SMO. Extra support is being provided to local associations, church plants, collegiate ministries, Disaster Relief ministries, and a host of other gospel-centered works in our state. ---Dr. Paul Chitwood

    2014 State Missions Offering Goal: $1,250,000
