All of our ministries flow from our objectives: Worship, Instruction, Fellowship, Evangelism. For more information on any specific ministry or if you are interested in serving, talk to one of the pastors or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you in touch with our ministry leaders. There are many ways for you to serve the body of Christ.
This includes the Nursery age (0-3), and Kids’ Classes for preschool through 6th grade. We have programs during the Sunday School hour (at 9:30 am) and during the worship service, after the kids are dismissed halfway through the main worship service. All our teaching is aimed to ground our children in the truths of Scripture through teaching sound doctrine (found in God’s Word) in the lessons and music, as well as other activities aimed to reinforce those concepts (worksheets, Bible memory, crafts, etc.). We have qualified, trained teachers who are cleared with a background check before interacting with our children. The safety and training of children is of utmost importance to us. As our children are taught year after year, we pray that God’s Word takes roots in their hearts, and they will move forward to our youth group, seeking to glorify Him in their lives. Serving opportunities include Teachers and Helpers (background check and training provided).
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. This video-based class begins the first week of September 2022.
This is in our “Ministries” section because in some ways it is the most important. Formal ministries can be helpful, but the Christian Church was designed to be lived in genuine community. Every believer has been given a God-given SHAPE (Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experiences) that God intends us to use for His glory and for the good of others. We would rather have fewer formal ministries with robust Life-on-Life ministry happening than the other way around.
We are always looking for volunteers to serve on our Tech Team. They are the ones who keep the lights, sound, and computers on so we can focus our hearts on Christ during our weekly gathering together. Our goal is undistracting excellence. Serving opportunities include computer tech, video tech, sound tech (training provided).
Member Care and Benevolence
When we experience hardship, the body of Christ is designed to minister. Serving opportunities include preparing and delivering food, visiting the sick in the hospital, and offering assistance when difficulties arise. We also have a benevolence fund that is used to help our families and, on occasion, those outside the church in extraordinary need.
As Titus 2 teaches, it is important that older men and younger men of the church are regularly involved in each other’s’ lives. To help facilitate this, we host a Men’s Fellowship breakfast once per quarter. This provides an opportunity for the men to meet together, pray, and share what the Lord is teaching them.
We partner with like-minded ministry partners all around the world. Our 2022 budgeted Ministry Partners are listed on the back of the weekly bulletin.
We want our music to be Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, Gospel-saturated, doctrinally-rich, congregationally-driven, stylistically-diverse, emotionally-engaging, and God-glorifying (cf. Col. 3:16). Like our media ministry, our goal is undistracting excellence. Follow our Spotify playlists to learn many of the songs we sing at sevbc.org/spotify. For our philosophy of music, see sevbc.org/music. Serving opportunities include singing, playing an instrument, and administration.
Our pastors are ready to walk with you through the mountains and valleys of the Christian life. Our pastoral counseling is aimed at giving you Biblical tools to faithfully respond as a sinner or a sufferer in the midst of life’s difficulties. Please contact us for help or for information about our philosophy of pastoral counseling.
A church-wide newsletter and email list is available for you to send out and receive prayer requests. Requests that are not urgent should be sent to email@example.com and will be included in the weekly newsletter. Urgent prayer requests should be sent to the same address, but with “Urgent:” in the subject line. Urgent requests will be sent (at the availability of the moderators) as soon as possible. When you receive a request, please pray. When sending a request, please be prudent about the information you include. Moderators have full discretion to edit requests.
Small groups are an integral part of ministry at Southeast Valley. Most of our small groups are multi-generational and include fellowship, singing, prayer, and discussion from the Bible. New Small Groups launch the first week of September. Serving opportunities include Leaders, Hosts, and Helpers.
Bible classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. We offer rotating electives each semester, and cover whole books of the Bible, the basics of Christian living, church membership, church history, theology, evangelism, and more.
Our young adults (ages 18-30) are strongly encouraged to join into a multi-generational small group and participate in the body life of the Church. Once per quarter, the young adults meet together for Worship and Fellowship.
Our Youth Group is grades 7-12 and meets on the 2nd and 4th Friday nights at 6pm at the church. The group also meets during the Sunday School hour at 9:30am in the Ministry House. Our group time is focused on biblical instruction, Christian discipleship, and genuine fellowship.
As Titus 2 teaches, it is important that older women and younger women of the church are regularly involved in each other’s’ lives. To help facilitate this, we host a Ladies’ Bible Study once per month. This provides an opportunity for the women of the church to meet together, pray, and share what the Lord is teaching them.
