Our Mission

Sharing a journey from self-reliance toward a life-changing dependence on Christ that sets us free to make a difference in our community.

Our Core Values

Four core values, shown below, guide what we do at SCC.

Laying Down Roots

We experience an environment where people in the midst of a transient community have a sense of belonging, and do life together while walking out their journey in Jesus Christ.

This is revealed by:

  • Smaller environments that we believe are central to sharing LIFE in community.
  • Reconnecting families that reveal Christ as the center of the home.
  • Developing real relationships where we can know and be known by each other.

Truth Matters

We experience an environment where the truth is not just embraced in what we teach but more importantly in how we live.

This is revealed by:

  • Exploring God's Word in a way that speaks to everyday life, not just passing on information.
  • Placing a high priority on the authority of God's Word and the central importance of Jesus Christ.
  • Approaching God's Word in a way that builds people up and does not tear them down.

Beyond Our Doors

We experience an environment where we care deeply enough to make a difference in the community and world around us.

This is revealed by:

  • Releasing leaders to impact Saline, Washtenaw County, Michigan/Northwest Ohio, and the world.
  • Engaging in local and regional ministry that is outside of our church body for the sake of making a difference for our neighbors.
  • Joining the mission of the C&MA all over the world through sending, giving, praying and going.

Breaking Free

We experience an environment where people can walk in their new life in Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit who has restored our true identity as sons and daughters of God.

This is revealed by:

  • Authenticity - We are not better than anyone else nor do we try to put on that show. We seek to create an environment where people are accepted for who they are.
  • Exposing Deception - Each of us operates out of some form of deception and lies that we have come to believe through our experiences and assumptions about life.  We believe that Christ is our only hope of exposing those deceptions so that we can know who we are in Him.
  • Identity - Our identity in Christ is central to our new life in Him.  Our desire is not for people to understand a good concept of identity but rather to KNOW the person of Christ who has restored their identity.
