  • Weather Update 2.15.16

      

    Due to the snow, the church office is closed this morning. We are working to get the lots and walkways cleared. Our plans are to open the office at 1pm. Please be careful if you must get out.

  • Weather Update 2.14.16

     

    Update 2.14.16 - We have been watching the weather and believe it best to cancel all programs and activities for tonight. This would include: Upwards, Bible Drill and Step Studies. Please be safe if you must get out.

  • Offices will open at 10am

     

    Due to the ice and snow, the church offices will open at 10am. Please park in the upper parking lot and enter through the main entrance. Be careful as you travel.


  • Weather Update 1.23.16

     

    We will be having church tomorrow with our regular schedule of 2 Worship Services and Small Groups. A HUGE thanks to all those who helped get our parking lot and sidewalks cleared. There may be some slick spots tomorrow morning due to melting and re-freezing. So be very careful as you are walking into the buildings.

    We hope to see you in the morning!


  • Weather Update - 1.21.16

    We know everyone is aware of the pending storm. Due to the projections, the church office will be closed on Friday, Jan. 22nd. We will also be canceling all activities for Saturday at the church. Our reasoning for doing this is for the protection of our staff and for those coming into our facilities. If the projections are correct, we will need to focus on snow removal so we can come together for worship this Sunday morning. We can’t remove the snow if we have a parking lot full of cars. Our staff and volunteers will most likely need all of Saturday to prepare for Sunday.

    We know this will disappoint many and we are sorry. But, we want to make sure that we have everything ready for the church family to gather together on Sunday. Please be careful if you must get out this weekend.

     

  • Weather Update - 1.20.16


    Due to the continued snowfall, we have closed the offices for today and canceled all activities for today and tonight. Please be careful if you must get out.

    We will continue to monitor the weather for the rest of the week and provide updates via www.svbc.cc, Facebook and Twitter.


  • Weather Update - 1.10.16

     

    UPDATE 1.10.16

    All Worship Services and Small Groups are as scheduled this morning. We are salting the parking lots and sidewalks, but there still remains slick spots. Please be careful as you drive to church, enter our property and as you walk into the buildings.

  • Weather Closings - March 6th & 7th

     

    Weather Closings - March 6th & 7th

    Just as there's a shortage of milk and bread at the grocery store, there's also a shortage of tractors to plow 18+" of snow. We're having a difficult time clearing our drives, parking lot and walkways. A big thanks to those helping remove snow today! We are hopeful to get a lot done Frday and Saturday so that we can worship together on Sunday.

    To be able to clear all the snow, we must have the parking lot empty of cars. This means we will not be opening the office on Friday and all activities for Friday and Saturday are canceled. We know this will disappoint some, but we are concerned for the safety of those on our campus and also focusing on getting things ready for the Lord's Day. 

    Pray for warm weather, sun, snow melting and for those working tirelessly outside. We will continue to update you concerning closings on the website, Facebook, Twitter and TV.

    If you must get out, please be careful!

    Update: Weather Closings - February 19th

    We are closing the church office for the entire day. Due to the sub-freezing temps and the wind, we are now dealing with ice and snow drifts on our entrances, parking lots and walkways.

  • Weather Closings - Feb 19th

    Weather Update - February 19th

    Due to the sub-freezing temps and the wind we are now dealing with ice and snow drifts on our entrances, parking lots and walkways. Because of this we are closing the church office this morning. We will try and open the office at 1pm. All programs and activities are cancelled through Saturday night. We will continue to update the web site to keep you informed.

    Please be in prayer for those who are at home and cannot get out. This would include many of our Senior Adults and those who are Homebound. Take a moment and pray for them.  If you know someone who is a Senior Adult, give them a call and check on them. See if they need anything. This is one way of living out Mark 12:30-31,

    "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

  • Weather Closings Feb 18-21

    Office Schedule and Closings/Cancellations

    Our custodial crew along with our snow removal crew has worked all day long. At this point we do not have the entrances, parking lot and walkways cleared enough to have Wednesday night activities. Weather forecasts are predicting the possibility of more snow and record low temperatures tonight through the end of the week. These conditions will only make snow removal more difficult. Because of this we believe we need to make a tough decision. 

    All Activities/Programs/Classes Are Cancelled Wednesday Through Saturday Night

    Our focus needs to be preparing for Sunday Worship Services and Small Groups. For this to happen our staff and custodial crew needs to focus on snow removal and preparing for Sunday.

    Our plans are to open the Church Office beginning tomorrow at 10am each day through the end of the week, weather permitting. 

    Please be praying for this coming Sunday services and be careful if you must get out.
