Wednesday nights provide a more intimate setting to learn the Word of God and fellowship with believers at all levels. Pastor Jayson will take the group through various books of the Bible and will provide real life examples to bring God’s Word to life. Serenity Study will teach participants how to apply His Word to their daily faith-walk through practical Biblical teachings that anyone can relate to; it is an environment where adults can learn how to grow their faith, refresh their spirit and become better equipped for every-day life. We invite you to join us each week at 6:30pm.
At SVCC, we are committed to the next generation of world changers. Serenity Youth is designed to support the needs of our students, while helping them develop their relationship with God through building their faith, building their character and building healthy relationships. Our kids are faced with peer pressure, bullying, and major influences from social media, just to name a few. Our goal is to provide them with an environment where they can be supported and surrounded by like-minded, healthy peers and leaders. #LoveOutLoudSY

Serenity Recovery Meetings
Serenity Recovery Meetings combine the principles of 12 Step teachings along with spiritual principles to convey a very practical approach to recovery. All of our teachings are based out of the AA Big Book, 12 Steps & 12 Traditions, NA Basic Text, NA – It Works, How & Why, and the Bible. The weekly guidelines that are presented are easy to understand and simple enough to apply to everyday life circumstances. The Tuesday night format consists of teaching followed by small groups which are designed to focus on the why behind the what of addiction. We gather every Tuesday night at 6:30 pm for an interactive meeting that attracts people from many recovery backgrounds, including AA, NA, GA, etc.
