GIVING

Joyful, Regular, Sacrificial

In light of how richly God provides for his people in Jesus, we believe regular, joyful, and sacrificial financial giving is part of our worship to God. We do not give to ‘get’ anything from God. Instead, our gratitude for His grace inspires generosity to give cheerfully and seek to further missional work through the local church. Please consider giving to support the ministry of SCCC via this online link or mail a check to the church address. 

KIDS

Resources for Families

As families gather for worship each Sunday in homes, we will be providing age-appropriate resources to aid parents in discipling their children. We long to see families increasingly love and follow Jesus, and hope these resources help you to dependently lead toward that. Family devotional guide.  

HELP

South County Community Church seeks to be a beacon of gospel hope by meeting spiritual, physical, and needs in our community. Our church family is made of people who depend on Jesus for hope in all seasons and would love to pass along this gospel shaped hope in prayer and physical service. Please let us know how we can help and/or pray for you!

Read Together | Psalm 145:13-21

13Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations. [The LORD is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.] 14 The LORD upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down. 15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. 16 You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing. 17The LORD is righteous in all his ways and kind in all his works. 18 The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them. 20 The LORD preserves all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.  21 My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD, and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.



Blessed Be Your Name

Blessed be Your name

In the land that is plentiful

Where Your streams of abundance flow

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name

When I'm found in the desert place

Though I walk through the wilderness

Blessed be Your name


[Pre-Chorus]

Every blessing You pour out

I'll turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say


[Chorus]

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name


[Verse 2]

Blessed be Your name

When the sun's shining down on me

When the world's 'all as it should be'

Blessed be Your name


Blessed be Your name

On the road marked with suffering

Though there's pain in the offering

Blessed be Your name


[Pre-Chorus]

Every blessing You pour out

I'll turn back to praise

When the darkness closes in, Lord

Still I will say


[Chorus]

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name


[Bridge]

You give and take away

You give and take away

My heart will choose to say

Lord, blessed be Your name

You give and take away

You give and take away

My heart will choose to say

Lord, blessed be Your name


[Chorus]

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your name

Blessed be the name of the Lord

Blessed be Your glorious name



Blessed Assurance

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine

O what a foretaste of glory divine

Heir of salvation, purchase of God

Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood


Perfect submission, all is at rest

I in my Savior am happy and blessed

Watching and waiting, looking above

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love


This is my story, this is my song

Praising my Savior all the day long

This is my story, this is my song

Praising my Savior all the day long


Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus

Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus

Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus

Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus


Death could not hold You, You are victorious

Praise to the risen King

Death could not hold You, You are victorious

Praise to the risen King


Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus

Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus

Oh what a Savior, wonderful Jesus

Oh what a Savior



My Worth is Not My Own

My worth is not in what I own

Not in the strength of flesh and bone

But in the costly wounds of love

At the cross


My worth is not in skill or name

In win or lose, in pride or shame

But in the blood of Christ that flowed

At the cross


And I rejoice in my Redeemer

Greatest Treasure,

Wellspring of my soul

And I will trust in Him, no other.

My soul is satisfied in Him alone.


As summer flowers we fade and die

Fame, youth and beauty hurry by

But life eternal calls to us

At the cross


I will not boast in wealth or might

Or human wisdom's fleeting light

But I will boast in knowing Christ

At the cross

And I rejoice in my Redeemer

Greatest Treasure,

Wellspring of my soul

And I will trust in Him, no other.

My soul is satisfied in Him alone.


And I rejoice in my Redeemer

Greatest Treasure,

Wellspring of my soul

And I will trust in Him, no other.

My soul is satisfied in Him alone


In you alone Lord

In you alone


Two wonders here that I confess

My worth and my unworthiness

My value fixed - my ransom paid

At the cross


And I rejoice in my Redeemer

Greatest Treasure,

Wellspring of my soul

And I will trust in Him, no other.

My soul is satisfied in Him alone.

My soul is satisfied in Him alone

SCRIPTURE | John 6:1-15

6:1 After this Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias. 2 And a large crowd was following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing on the sick. 3 Jesus went up on the mountain, and there he sat down with his disciples. 4 Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand. 5 Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming toward him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?” 6 He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he would do. 7 Philip answered him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread would not be enough for each of them to get a little.” 8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him, 9 “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are they for so many?” 10 Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, about five thousand in number. 11 Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated. So also the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost.” 13 So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves left by those who had eaten. 14 When the people saw the sign that he had done, they said, “This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world!”

    15 Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself.


BIG IDEA | Trust Jesus. How? 

Confess Our Doubts. Consider His Distribution. Celebrate His Desire


APPLICATION QUESTIONS | Discuss at home or on Facebook

What did you learn about Jesus in this text?

  • V1-9 Confess our Doubts
  • What do the crowds in v1-3 want? How do the disciples respond to the need for food in v7-8? What might you have thought to do if in Philip’s or Andrew’s situation?
  • What present difficulty is causing you to doubt Jesus’s sufficiency and ability to provide?
  • V10-13 Consider God’s Distribution
  • How many people were hearing Jesus speak and needing food? What did Jesus use to feed them? How much did he offer them?
  • How might the celebration of past abundant distribution from God help you combat present doubt in God?
  • V14-15 Celebrate God’s Desire
  • What did the crowds want to do w/ Jesus after seeing this sign? Who did they think he was?
  • Why did Jesus retreat? When would he be crowned as King? What sort of crown would he wear?
  • How does the rest of Jesus’s ministry show God’s desire to be King of eternity, not just king temporarily? How does the King’s victory over death and sin help us rest in and desire Him more than any gifts? Even this week?
