Who We Are
Andy Minch - Elder
The world is rapidly changing and it’s important for the church to be sensitive and responsive to these changes.
The Sauk Valley Community Church is growing in an understanding of how to adapt to the needs of our community and at the same time we remain unswervingly committed to following God’s Word and His mission.
For the past decade, we’ve been moving into the future exploring “What does it really mean” to be The Church in this generation. The Sauk Valley Community Church is a gathering of Christians who are seeking to understand what it means to be followers of Jesus in every aspect of our lives. We strive to conduct ourselves more like a family than an institution.
One of the things you will notice about our church is an openness to accept people just as they are. We have spent a lot of time discussing and nurturing an attitude and understanding that we are all imperfect people living in an imperfect world. Another thing you will notice is our emphasis on growing together as a family. To facilitate this, we focus on smaller group interactions which enable us to get to know other people better and to give the opportunity for the average person to share what God has been teaching them.
We have chosen not to follow the tradition of a professional pastor but rather, we recognize that God gives various abilities to his people and we all have a responsibility to faithfully use those abilities to benefit the community around us.
We invite you to join us on a Sunday morning for a light breakfast and interaction together at 9:30 AM and to stay for our Sunday celebration at 10:00. Tuesday nights, we meet at 5:00 PM. for a supper and then to gather for open discussion around a topic and to pray together.
