Shades Valley Community Church

College

shadesvalleycollege_natalieelysephotography-9

The Christian life can be messy: a mix of absolutes and uncertainties. We hope our church is a safe space for students to ask questions, struggle, wrestle with scripture and form theology in a Christ-centered atmosphere. We value being authentic with each other and with God. We try to stay spontaneous, organic and relationship driven. Our goal at SVCC is not to create a college ministry that is separate from the rest of the body but rather to push students into our community group. We encourage students to use their gifts and talents to serve the whole body in whatever way the Spirit is leading them.

Serve the Body! 

Are you interested in using your gifts and abilities to serve the body at SVCC? Have you seen a need that you would like to meet? Contact: brad@shadesvalley.org to grab a cup a coffee and have a conversation about how you can serve in our faith family!

Our group desires to connect college students into gospel-centered community with one another and to foster relationships of accountability in order to empower believers to live out their faith and to evangelize to the world around them. We come from many different backgrounds and are various stages in our walks with the Lord. We meet on Thursday nights, and we also frequently have community events and activities as well as service opportunities as people see need. We would love to have anyone who feels a need for community join us on this adventure!

Community CHANGE Challenge

Let’s face it…College students are broke. This is probably true of you and may make you feel like you cannot contribute to SVCC. This is false…and we want to help you CHANGE this mindset in two ways. 1) Get involved! There are all sorts of ways to get involved in the life of SVCC through serving and community. Click on those links for just a small sample of ways to be more connected. 2) You may think you have nothing to offer financially, but do you have any change? Yes, change…coinage. We are challenging our college students to collect their change throughout the week and bring it as an offering on Sundays. Together, you can all make a massive difference by participating in this small way. Trust us…SVCC is a place where even the smallest amounts make a huge difference and we want you to know anything you contribute is awesome and valued!

You're Invited!

Please come worship with us Sundays at 10:30am!
