THIS WEEK

Ø Board Meeting - Tuesday at 6:30 PM in the Conference Room.

Ø GET INSPIRED! Wednesday at 7:00 PM.  Our mid-week service is a time for all of us to join in a time of encouragement, prayer and worship.  It's a long time between Sundays and by the middle of the week you need a boost!  Your kids need to hear how God is working in the lives of people in our church.  We all need to know how to better pray for each other and we learn that by sharing what goes on in this special prayer meeting! It's not just on more think to do, it is an hour reprieve from the demands of life, a refueling for the remainder of the week and a time of blessing one another by entering into life together.  WE NEED THIS!  OUR CHILDREN NEED TO EXPERIENCE THIS PART OF DISCIPLESHIP TOO!  Give them the opportunity to experience the full life of the Body of Christ while they are young and impressionable!  This is a huge benefit in bonding them to church and the Lord for the rest of their lives.  Valley Mission will become stronger and more effective when we invest time in prayer and connecting with one another beyond Sundays.  Join us!

Ø Choir Practice - Wednesday at 8:00 PM (after evening service)

Ø FAITH PROMISE, with speaker David Nabeel, will be next Sunday. David is from Iraq and will be a very informative speaker about that region.  A Pitch-In Dinner will follow Sunday School.

GREETINGS
We are so glad you came to worship with us today.  If you are new, please let us get to know you personally by completing a guest form.  If you were not already given one, please stop at the Welcome Center in the foyer.  We want you to feel at home with us and have the opportunity to have a dynamic encounter with the LORD and to feel the love of His people.  God is doing great things at Valley Mission and we would be thrilled for you to become a part of it!


Nursery/Toddlers
Our Nursery and Toddler rooms are available for New Born through 2 years (or until potty trained) during Worship and Sunday School, if you wish.  Check your child into room 128/130.  You will receive a pager in case you are needed.
Our Worship Service and Sunday School Classes are child friendly if you wish to keep your little ones with you.  Feel free to stop by our nursery to use the changing table or rocker for feeding if needed. See Jen Flynn if you would like to help with this ministry.

Children’s Church Schedule
The first Sunday of the month, Children’s Church will include all children pre-school (potty trained) through Grade 6 for Mission Lesson.

The second and third Sundays Children’s Church will be for children pre-school (potty trained) through Kindergarten

There will be NO Children’s Church on the fourth and fifth Sundays of the month.

Compassionate Ministries
Thanks to all who are helping with our Compassionate Ministries, providing meals for families in need.  Our church is blessed with generous, loving, compassionate people.  Jaime Gaines is working very hard to coordinate the schedule for meal preparation and delivery with the families in need and the providers on our list. We have several families that have received 2 and 3 meals on the same day which can be as overwhelming as not receiving any.  If you did not get signed up on the list and would like to be a provider, let Jaime know.  If you are not on the provider list but you occasionally provide a meal, PLEASE, let Jaime know. Just give her a call, text or email at 812-278-1520 or family2allboys@yahoo.com to let her know who and when you plan to provide a meal for.  Thank you all for your giving spirit!
