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.
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.
MAY JUNE 2018
MARCH APRIL 2018
2020 has been turning out to be very challenging for all of us due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and world-wide social unrest which has significantly impacted our lives and environment. However, we continue to praise the Lord for His protection and encouragement through these difficult times. We also praise Him for leading us to experience His presence more deeply in these unique circumstances. Despite the prolonged pandemic, the 2020 SVCA LDC is rapidly approaching us and deserves our highest spiritual hunger and anticipation.
The theme of this year’s LDC is “Being Conformed to the Image of the Son of God,” which is not only a key area of implementation for SVCA’s annual theme “Christ is the Reality of the Kingdom of God,” but it also reminds us of the will of God, which He wants all of His children to perceive and hold onto throughout this year’s uncertainties. In a time when all are longing for His special intervention through His Word and Spirit, let us expect to receive His life-changing and reviving power during this upcoming LDC.
let us pray that the Lord may do even greater things among us despite our challenging situation! Thus, we call on you to pray with us toward these goals while we all prepare our own hearts for this grand spiritual feast.
