January 2019

January Greetings!

Happy New Year to You & Yours!

As you can probably tell, the pictures are from our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. We praise the Lord for the opportunity to worship the Word made flesh—the Lord Jesus Christ—Emmanuel, God with us!

Praise & Prayer…

  • Answered prayer; many folks are recovering well from recent surgeries: Larue Allen, Emily Brown, Vic Livermore, MaryAnn Poage; rich spiritual blessings at Christmas with both outreach and in-reach
  • Physical needs; Joan Hannum; Pastor Gerald Peet (dialysis); Missionaries Garth & Margaret Roberts
  • Witnessing, salvation of souls, ongoing discipling and assurance of believers, folks to follow the Lord in believer’s baptism. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment; John 16:8.
  • Missionaries Troy & Danielle Gahman are planning to arrive in S. Africa for their first term on January 1!


Bread may keep our bodies alive, yet it is the Word of God that feeds our souls.

Are we daily taking sustenance from God’s Word?

If not, now is a great time to begin making the Bible

the priority God intends for it to be in our lives.

—Tim Valiante (missionary who visited SVBC on 11/12/17)


Thank you for praying with us and for us!

We pray for you too.


In Christ’s Love,

Tom & Wanda MacAvoy
