Ø Play/Choir practice, Wednesday at 7:00 PM in the choir loft.
Ø GET INSPIRED! Wednesday at 7:00 PM . Our midweek 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 the sharing what goes on in this special prayer meeting! It’s not just one more thing 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! Make it a resolution for the year! Try it for 8 weeks in a row and see if it doesn’t make a positive difference in your life!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know who and when you plan to provide a meal for. Thank you all for your giving spirit!
