Our Services

What are services like?
Sunday service begins with praise and worship, then Biblical truth that can be applied directly to your life is preached. At SSCC, "I" am not the focus, but "He" is. Wednesday night services have something for nursery through adults. The youth (12-18) meet in the gym and have a great time playing basketball, dodgeball, and other games, and then a message is shared. The adults are in a smaller setting and go a little deeper into the Bible. The children also meet and have a great time playing games and learning Biblical truth.

What is the community like?
The church community is racially diverse with a pretty even age distribution. There is a family atmosphere with no hidden agendas or power struggles. We are all united with the goal of being a genuine Christian inside and outside of the church building. We are real people that talk about our real problems and struggles in life.

What if I'm not a Christian?
If you are not a Christian, but you are looking for answers to life's difficult questions, or you just need someone to talk to, this is the place for you.

Jeff Morrow

Pastor Jeff grew up a preacher's kid but rebelled for many years. After serving in the US military, he worked as a mailman and did landscaping to support his family of five. In 1992 on Labor Day, after a 3 day cocaine binge, he finally got sick and tired of being sick and tired. In his own living room, he decided to give his life to Jesus and he was instantly healed of his drug and alcohol addiction. He began to serve in his local church wherever help was needed and he earned his ministerial credentials through the Assemblies of God. Eventually, in 1997, he and his wife felt called to pastor a small church of 8 people in Matteson. Today, the church is in a larger building across the street, has planted three churches from Chicago to Burbonnaise, hosts the VANGUARD program for at-risk youth and houses a school from PreK through 5th grade.
