October Greetings!


Hey, let me encourage you to continue in God’s Word


Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him,

If ye continue in my word,

then are ye my disciples indeed; John 8:31


So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God; Romans 10:17.


Please pray and thank the Lord with us…


  • Six! So far this fall, we thank the Lord that new children from six different new families have participated in our Wednesday Master Clubs. That brings us to a total of 21 children on the roll. We are thankful for that and for the parents from two of those families attending prayer meeting and other services. Please pray that we would be able to effectively reach out to all these families with the gospel of Jesus Christ.


  • Two! Last Sunday after the morning service I had two people talk with me about God’s Word specifically speaking to their hearts. They both asked for help. Please pray for wisdom in helping these dear folks who want to grow in Christ.


  • Fall Fest is Sunday, September 30! Lunch on the grounds followed by hayride, family game, & afternoon service (no p.m. service).


  • Homeschool Helpers; we have several families both in our church and community who have expressed a desire for help with homeschooling. Please pray with us as we begin having meetings with this group probably twice a month to help them instruct their children with a biblical worldview.


“It is a great step when the believer fully consents to his own weakness, and the abiding consciousness of it, and so works faithfully on. He rejoices that the excellence of the power is of God, and not of him. A great secret of abiding in Christ is the deep conviction that

we are nothing, and Christ is everything.” –Andrew Murray


Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves;

but our sufficiency is of God; 2 Corinthians 3:5.


Thank you for praying with us and for us!

We pray for you too.


In Christ’s Love,

Thank the Lord for His Word, His people, and opportunities to give out God’s Word:

Cogan House Township Festival—August 25, 2018!

 Great day at the Cogan House Township Festival! We had a booth for children. We were mobbed several times as we had several different Bible games and crafts for them to do as well as free cotton candy and helium balloons. We ran out of several things. Thank you to the many at SVBC that worked hard as well as so many in the community to make this a great relationship-building time! We even ran out of invitations to our Children’s Master Clubs—which resume this Wednesday at 7 p.m.! We praise the Lord for His goodness!
