Decorating Christmas Cookies for Carols By Candlelight December 16 at
10:00 AM. We are not looking for “Quality”…each cookie will be beautiful
in its own way, so you don’t have to be a professional. It’s a time to gather
young and old alike, make memories, and share the love of Jesus.
We’re hoping moms (and dads) will bring their little ones to help. If you
plan on coming or have questions, please call or text Renee at 812-327-6017
by December 11 (or I will have a lot of decorating to do by myself!!).
Carols By Candlelight will be on December 17 at 6:30 PM. Come join us for
an hour of Christmas Spirit and our annual circle of light candle lighting
ceremony. Be inviting family, friends and neighbors!
December’s Third Tuesday Lunch will be December 19 at 1:30 PM at Golden
Corral. Everyone is welcome to join in a great time of fellowship. The cost
is $9.49/each and includes your drink.
Family FUN New Years Eve! Join your church family for a fun evening of
finger foods and games on Sunday, December 31, New Years Eve, starting
at 5:30 PM. Bring a 2-liter, your favorite snack and board game! Invite
someone to join us!
There will be a district wide Ministry Safe class here at VM January 20th for
those working with children (more details to come in December). Please see
Debby Baker or Heather Ritter if you are interested in (or need to) attending.
(All working with children should be trained and certified.)
Teens will meet at 6:00 PM Wednesdays.
NMI December Emphasis: Nazarene Compassionate Ministries
(NCM) One way NCM is emphasized at Valley Mission is through
The Child Sponsorship Program. This program provides nutritious
meals, training and/or education in World Mission areas. Two of our
adult Sunday School Classes participate in this program. Additional
information at: ncm.org/sponsor
Another way is through the collection of items for Crisis Care Kits.
These kits contain essential person hygiene items that are distributed
in disaster areas. Both of these ways demonstrate loving acts of
compassion through meeting the needs of others.
Care & Connect Missionaries: Rusty & Diane Robbins are the Care &
Connect Missionaries (formerly LINKS) through December 2023.
They serve the Eurasia Region as Regional Coordinators. Their prayer
requests include: *For the Holy Spirit to go before them preparing
hearts to receive Salvation *Perseverance in Persecution for new
believers * Their physical health that they might serve well.
DON’T FORGET TO PRAY FOR YOUR APPOINTED CHILD THIS WEEK.
If you have not yet been appointed a child, see Heather Ritter
