A Hermeneutic of Submission
Titus 2:9-10 CSB

Big Idea: Read the text in Context

A. A proper reading of this passage will focus on Crete, not America
a. Understand the similarities and dissimilarities between Cretan and American slavery
i. Cretan slave owners held absolute authority over household slaves.
ii. American slave owners held absolute authority over enslaved Africans.
iii. Cretan slavery was based on remuneration.
iv. American slavery was based on race.
v. Cretan slavery was provisional.
vi. American slavery was perpetual.

B. Submit to your Cretan masters to advance the message of Christ (vv. 9-10)
i. In everything honorable
ii. In communication
iii. In contentment
iv. In commitment
v. In Christ-likeness

Final Charge: Do not abuse the text or you will make the Bible suspect. Read the text in Context.


It’s more important now than ever for us to stay connected with our church family. The best way to do this is by being involved in a virtual Small Group. This is a great way to meet people and when we are able, you can join them in person when they meet.

Senior Adults

We have three Senior Adult Small Groups meeting together through Zoom and one by conference call each week. If you'd like to join one of these Small Groups, email and we will help you get connected.


We are sharing resources every week online so that kids can have small groups at home. We'd love to get your kiddo connected virtually!

MOPS/Moms Next

Whether you’re a soon-to-be mom, seventh-time mom, teen mom, adoptive mom, stepmom, single mom, or any other type of mom, you are welcome here! A MOPS/Moms Next meeting includes brunch, coffee and an opportunity to connect with other moms. This is a no-judgement zone. We are all mamas. 2 Fridays a month, 9:30am-12pm For more information, email Childcare is limited.


All of our grades 6-12 small groups are still meeting online. We'd love to get your student connected with a small group and share other ways SVstudents are staying connected during this time of social distancing!

Student Camp is going virtual!

Our theme this year for camp is Awaken and we are going to spend the week unpacking what it means that God has called us to so much more than we realize! Camp will broadcast from July 6th through July 9th on the SV Students Youtube page and on the Severns Valley Facebook page. If you have any questions feel free to contact us and you can register your student by clicking the link below.

Love People

Check out the many ways you can be involved in serving our church and community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prayer Wall

At SV, we want prayer to be a daily, interactive practice. On our prayer page you are able to submit a prayer request that can then be displayed on our prayer wall. You can choose to submit your request anonymously, publicly, or privately. While you're there, you can pray over the other requests listed and hit the "I Prayed for This" button to let the person know you're praying for them. Let's bear each other's burdens! 🙏🏻

CR Etown

God wants you to experience His grace and the encouragement of others who have successfully walked the road to recovery in their lives. While our Monday night gatherings have been on pause, we are posting online every week on Facebook, Youtube and Instagram.

"Save A Seat"

It is great to be Gathering Together again! There is room for you! We will continue to ask you to "Save a Seat" for you and your family members when attending. Doing this helps us to make sure we are adequately prepared for all who are able to attend. We will still be following our SV guidelines to protect us from contracting and spreading COVID-19. We ask for everyone to wear a mask and follow social distancing. We are doing this to help all who attend focus on Jesus, His word to us through the preaching of His word. You can save your seat by clicking the link below:
