2013 Summer Teaching Series at SCC

This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend and it’s the unofficial beginning of the Summer Season. After Memorial Day, school will soon be out, vacations will be taken; we’ll hit the beach, the pool, and the park. We’ll squeeze what we can out of the outdoors while its warm!

Review and Reflect on Mark 12:41-44 – Understanding Money in Terms of Worship

Contrasting the story of the religious leaders who exploit poor widows, in Mark 12:41-44, Jesus points out a poor widow. The important and wealthy people are throwing large sums of money into the temple offering and they are making sure everyone sees them do it. In the middle of this, along comes a poor widow […]

Review and Reflect on Mark 12:28-34 – Loving God and Loving People is the sum of what God requires of us.

You can’t do everything, but do one thing.

A Pastor I know posted this on his Facebook page yesterday: “Simple means not complicated. Easy means not hard. Simple doesn’t mean easy.” We believe that Christians have one primary command: Love! That is why our church’s mission is to love God and love people simply, deeply, authentically. Love is the motivation and end of […]
