OUR CURRENT SERIES
messages in MAY AND JUNE
This Mother's Day we're starting our series by looking at how Christ entered the world in a particular family, with a specific mom who surrendered her family and life to the Lord's plans. Luke 1:26-38
PASS IT ON
Will Liao delivers the message on how and why God's family plan is for parents to pass on their spiritual heritage to their children.
Brother Jun Yang shares a moving message on following God's plan for our families from Luke 2. What does it mean for your family to be about the Father's business?
While our culture is quesitoning God's perfect design for marriage, often our own hearts are also struggling with how and why to follow His plan. Let's look into how God's design reveals our relationship with Jesus Christ and how we give Him glory in the everyday rhythm of our married life.
In this special bilingual message, discover how God designed the family as the perfect vessel for discipleship in our homes and churches as we dig into Deuteronomy 6.
THE FATHER AND HIS SON
On Father's Day we put on display the unique and beautiful relationship between God the Father and God the Son. Our goal and application is what Jesus prayed in John 17:3 - to know the Father and His Son. Our text is John 5:19-40.
I'VE BEEN ADOPTED! [Now What?]
What does it mean to be in God's family? We often call each other brothers and sisters around here, but what are the amazing possibilities and responsibilities of being a church family? We turn to Hebrews 10 to find out.
God has amazing plans for our homes and His family the Church. From Mother's Day to Father's Day we looked at what it means to be in Christ's family, be surrendered to His designs, and for our houses to serve Him.

Dear Brothers, Sisters, and Friends,
With a heart of thanksgiving and expectation, we sincerely welcome you to SVCA’s 2019 Labor Day Conference!
The theme of this year’s conference is again “One Spirit to Exalt Christ, One Course to Expand His Kingdom”. It is not only the theme for all the meetings of SVCA since last year but also the never-changing vision and mission bestowed upon us by the Lord. In this crooked and perverse age, and facing various challenges and stresses, let us keep on upholding the vision and mission of Christ in “One Spirit and One Course” so as to “Exalt Christ and Expand His Kingdom” without any compromise.
We look forward to worshipping and pursuing the Lord with you together in this conference in His presence, receiving the riches of His Kingdom and catching His holy fire together. We pray that the Lord put a thirst in our hearts and accomplishes renewing and reviving works among us. May we all receive the best portion from Him and have our spirits to be stirred up, so that we may, together, take actions to advance the gospel and fulfill His mission and victory in this age!
May God use this conference to abundantly bless us!

From good to bad. We'll see the power of influence in one's life and also the need to have our own experience
In all relationships, let Christ be the Lord 1
We read the kingdom of God is "righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit". All our relationships should reflect that principle. In workshop 1, we will discuss male/female relationships, both before marriage and after marriage.
Do not Worry
1 Kings 17
In all relationships, let Christ be the Lord 2

Brother Joseph Ren has been serving the Lord since 2007 when he and his wife Mary planted a house church in China. In early 2013, he and his family went to East Africa as missionaries, where he planted and pastored a local church and also led a number of revival conferences in towns or remote villages until June 2019. He is now a full-time minister at SVCA.Throughout his mission experiences, Joseph has been burdened in seeking the truth of the Church and the mission that the Lord desires in the present age.
In all services, let Christ be the Lord
The Lord has rescued us from darkness into His Kingdom of light so that we may enjoy his presence and serve Him. However, serving the Lord does not simply mean working in the church or doing things in His name. In this workshop, we welcome you to learn and share with us how we may let Christ be the Lord in all our services.
