  • Trustworthy Resources - Volume 1

    Written by
    Today’s post is for the purpose of pointing you to some of the best online resources available to Christians seeking to grow in their knowledge and love for God and His Word. With the internet ever-expanding, it can be difficult for Christians to discern which of these resources are the most trustworthy. Below is a list of some of the websites I make use of most consistently and would most enthusiastically recommend. Referring to these websites is not intended to convey agreement with everything in them; but where our church would disagree with the materials on these sites, those disagreements would be around secondary issues. In other words, though there may be points of disagreements, those points would not be regarding matters of first importance,…

  • The Numbers Game: Church Numbers in Biblical Perspective

    Written by
    For many Christians, a church’s success is a matter of simple mathematics. The more people, the better. If attendance and giving numbers are going up, God must be pleased. And if those numbers are going down, well…you get the picture. I wish I could say that I’ve never played the numbers game myself, but I can’t, because I do, quite often actually. Yes, I admit that an ever-changing portion of my Monday morning mood is influenced by the attendance and giving numbers of our church the day before. When the numbers look good, I tend to go into my week feeling encouraged. And when the numbers look less than good, I have to ask the Lord to guard me from becoming discouraged. However, various circumstances…

  • Two Big Reasons God Became Man

    Written by
    In the Gospel of Luke, we read: “Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger” (Luke 2:11-12 ESV). These well known words are the heavenly announcement of the Incarnation of the Son of God. Here in Luke 2, the angel is announcing the birth of Israel’s Savior and Hero. However, the announcement is quite unexpected; not that the baby will become a great and powerful leader; but that the great and powerful leader of the Jewish people had become a baby. Christ, the Lord, had been born. God had become a human being.…

  • SCC Core Commitments: A Plurality of Pastors

    Written by
    This is our next installment in a series of blog posts about SCC's core commitments. Here at SCC, we believe in a plurality of pastors, who lead the church as Christ’s under-shepherds. In other words, we have a team of multiple pastors. Let’s look to the Bible to see what a pastor is, and then discuss why we hold to a plurality view. What is a Pastor? Let’s look at and read Titus 1:5. Paul left Titus in Crete, and gave Titus some pretty specific instructions for his time in Crete; specifically, to “put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town.” So Titus was tasked to put the things that remained into order. We see that among those things, and probably the…

  • A Prayer for the Lord's Supper

    Written by
    A few weeks ago, we prayed this prayer together as a church family as we prepared to remember the death of Jesus our Savior by eating bread and drinking juice in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper. It is a prayer from a book of Puritan prayers called The Valley of Vision. That little book has enriched my prayer life more than any other book (next to the Bible, of course). If you don’t have it, I would fully recommend getting it. Below is the prayer, which I modified a bit for gathered church setting. I would encourage you to pray through this prayer next time you prepare to remember the death of your Savior in the Lord’s Supper. God of All Good, We praise…

  • The Gospel and Personal Relationships

    Written by
    You and I are social beings by nature. We have been made that way. The very fact that we exist testifies to this fact, since life itself is conceived socially. Just as the human race could not succeed without social interaction, no single human being could either. Even the crazy mountain man that hasn't seen another human being for twenty years is a social being. He just interacts with animals and inanimate objects, instead of people. Our desire for friendships then, is a natural, God-given desire. This, I believe is at the root of what God meant when He said in the Garden, "It is not good for man to be alone." Despite the perfect goodness of the original creation itself, it all would have…

  • SCC Core Commitments: God-Centered Worship

    Written by
    A continuation of a series devoted to explaining some of the foundational commitments of our church. Today in broader evangelical culture, a lot of what is called worship by churches would better be described as "performance." In some cases, the worship leader's face is even shown on large screens as they "lead" worship. At SCC, we believe and strive to convey that congregational worship is not a performance, but in fact is a time intended to lift every heart and mind up to God and His glory, both in who He is and what He has done for us. The worship service is first and foremost a time to glorify and exalt God. Songs that we sing are chosen with this in mind. The way…

  • SCC Core Commitments: Expository Preaching & Teaching

    Written by
    This is the first post in a series devoted to explaining some of the foundational commitments of our church. At SCC, we are committed to what is called “expository preaching.” This is a kind of preaching that seeks to simply explain the meaning and relevance of the Bible. G. Campbell Morgan once said that the sermon ought to be simply “the text repeated more fully.” In expository preaching, the preacher begins with a passage of Scripture, prayerfully studies that passage of Scripture in its historical, grammatical and theological contexts in order to discern what it means, and only after that seeks to communicate the meaning of that passage (first) and the implications of that passage (second) accurately and effectively to the congregation. What this means…

  • Sermon Series Read Along

    Written by
    Throughout our current sermons series on church membership, I have encouraged the people of our church to read one of four very good books on the subject to supplement their study. The challenge is to choose one of the suggested books below to read over the course of the next 4 weeks and then (if you are really daring) send a short note to the elders (send to:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ), sharing one significant thing from your reading that challenged you. Note, I may share your note with the church at some point during the sermon series (with your permission, of course!), to encourage the body with what we are learning. Here are the books I have recommended. Joshua Harris, Why Church Matters: Discovering Your Place in…

  • The Best Place for Our Souls

    Written by
    In my recent study of Mark 5:1-20, I came across this quote by the old Bishop of Liverpool, John Charles (J.C.) Ryle, that I thought was too good not to share. "That place and position is most healthful for us in which we are kept most humble -- most taught our own sinfulness -- drawn most to the Bible and prayer -- led most to live by faith and not by sight. It may not be quite what we like. But if Christ by His providence has placed us in it, let us not be in a hurry to leave it. Let us therein abide with God. The great thing is to have no will of our own, and to be where Jesus would have…
