Sunday intercessory prayer begins promptly at 11:15am and our Sunday worship service starts at 11:30am. Our service usually lasts for two hours. Praise and worship lasts for approximately 30 minutes, followed by selections from our choir or dance team, then a relevant message from one of our Pastors or ministers. Our mid-week Bible Study starts with intercessory prayer and a congressional at 7:30. Teaching begins promptly at 7:45pm. Our mid-week service lasts about an hour; however, additional time may be given to allow for discussion and questions. Though we strive to stay on schedule, we always allow time for God to have His way.
SVOP adopts the "come as you are," method of attire; however, our members casually dress most Sundays. Every first Sunday, we take communion and all clergy are dressed in black and white and occasionally civic attire. Every last Sunday is our "Jeans" Sunday so feel free to come comfortable! Those attending service throughout the week typically dress in a relaxed or casual manner.
When coming from Atlanta you will get off of the Gresham Rd. exit going 20 Eastbound, you will make a right onto Gresham Rd and then a left onto Zane Grey Dr. SE and we will be down the hill on your right. Once you make a left onto Zane Grey Dr SE, it'll be easy to spot those red stairs.
We have an accessible parking lot right in front of the church.
Once you walk up those red steps, you’ll be greeted by some warm and friendly people who can’t wait to love on you. We call them our gatekeepers. Our gatekeepers will answer any question you may have as well as direct you to a seat in the sanctuary.
SVOP loves to participate in Praise and Worship! When you walk through our doors, you may possibly see us doing that as freely as we know how. We dance, sing, cry, shout and every other way you can think of to show praises to our God. We are very Holy Ghost led in our services and there may be times where the choir does not sing and/or the pastor may not preach due to the Lord’s agenda. We understand many people come to church with an expectation so we have ministers available for you as long as you may need them after service and they will pray with you about anything you need.
Youth & Children's Church
We are currently renovating the children's area. For the time being, the children and youth worship in the sanctuary with everyone else, but they often sit together. Stay tuned for announcements on the renovation process!
