​​Valley Mission Church Needs:
Children’s Church, Nursery and Sunday School HELPERS:
We are looking for people who are willing to be Children’s ministries HELPERS.  We need hall monitors and helpers to be an extra set of hands/eyes to fill in in the classroom while a teacher may need to step out for a minute. We also need substitute teachers and Children’s Church and Sunday School teachers/helpers!!!  See Debby Baker.

Web Creation, Design, or Maintenance:  Looking to update our church website.  Are you able to create a website?  Maintain a website we buy?  Bring us up to date?  We need you!  You do not need to be a member, but as in all our ministries, living by our Christian Code of Conduct is a must!  See the Pastors

Sick and Shut-ins Meal Organizer:  Plan, prep, and coordinate meals for sick and shut-ins.  See Marla Gray.

We are working to compile a more complete listing.  We believe if you call Valley Mission your church home, you should easily be able to identify where you serve each other and the Lord!  Prayerfully consider the gifts God has given you to use to complete the body of Christ.  


Check out the LOST & FOUND basket at the Welcome Center.  There are items just waiting to be found!
