Dear Valley Church,
Since we launched a new location of The Valley Church in Troy last October, we have seen hundreds of people come through the doors. We are seeing our misson of “Changed lives changing lives” truly fulfilled as numerous people have crossed the line of faith in Christ, been baptized, are being discipled, and families are being changed forever.
However, we are not satisfied or finished. Rather, we will do whatever it takes to see those without hope enter into a life-giving relationship with Jesus Christ. An empty seat is not OK because that seat represents a person who needs to experience the forgiveness that will give them a greater purpose on earth and an eternity that is regret free.
So, how do we continue to move into what God is doing in our region?
The All In to go All Out resource initiative will allow us to take our next steps as a church to reach thousands more who need Christ in their lives. All In to go All Out will provide the resources to remodel the former theatre at the Sherwood Shopping Center so that we can double the number of seats in the adult worship center along with providing our teens with their own space to invite their friends. In addition, we will have separate spaces for our nursery, preschool and elementary students where they can invite friends to hear how God has a big plan for their life! When a child graduates from high school, we don’t want them to graduate from their faith.
Commitment Day is Sunday, November 17. That is the day we are asking you to bring your one-time gift (the biggest you have ever given) and your three year commitment to All In to go All Out. Every gift is important. The size of the gift and three year commitment is to be what the Lord has placed on your heart. We are praying for 100% participation - that no matter how large or small the gift, everyone will participate. Throughout history, God has called His people to be All In to go All Out with a vision that is bigger than any one of us could accomplish on our own. NOW is one of those times for us as a church!
Join us in praying that God will be glorified in all that we do and all He is doing in us during All In to go All Out.

Meet the Vasils
We started attending the Valley Troy in fall, 2018 after encouragement from family who attend the Piqua campus. After years of going to various churches but not being fully committed we quickly felt at home! We fell in love with the people, the pastors, the message and knew this is exactly where we were supposed to be. Our children love being a part of the children’s program, have made new friends and are growing in their relationships with God.
During our time at the Valley, we have become part of a life group where we laugh, learn and challenge each other to grow in our walk with Jesus! The Valley Troy is committed to service and, through an opportunity with our life group, we were introduced to the needs of foster families in our community. Pastors Mark and Jess were so supportive and encouraging to act on this idea to reach out and connect with the community, and soon Seeds of Hope was created!
The Valley Troy has become a vital part of our life and we are so thankful to be part of a place that is changing our family’s future for the better! We tell everyone we know about the Valley Troy and if they are looking for a church home this is the place to be!!
MAKING SPACE FOR YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Our mission is changed lives that are changing lives in our communities. It is our desire to reach our city, region, and the world with the life-changing message of Jesus. We know that a new facility will allow us to reach people we were not able to connect with before. Our desire is to make it possible for everyone to invite their friends and family to The Valley Church.
Children and teens are extremely important to The Valley Church. As we continue to reach more children and families, we have grown to the point that our children and teen ministry spaces need to be expanded. To accommodate this growth, we are renovating the former movie theater at the Sherwood Shopping Center so that children in the nursery, preschool and elementary can have their own spaces along with a separate space for our teens to gather. This will allow us to reach even more families!

Questions & Answers
Why are we doing the All In to go All Out Initiative?
God has given The Valley Church a bigger vision than we’ve ever had- a vision to see thousands more people in the greater Miami Valley find their way back to God. This initiative will provide the resources to take our next steps to accomplish this expanded vision.
Our children and teens are running out of space to meet and so many people urgently need Jesus! We will use the funds from All In to go All Out to renovate the new facility at the Sherwood Shopping Center that will provide even more space for teens, children, and adults as The Valley Church continues to grow.
What do I need to do?
Begin praying now about how the Holy Spirit will lead you to use your resources to help MORE people find their way back to God through All In to go All Out. Our hope is that every person will join us as we step into the next phase of The Valley Church. Commitment Day is Sunday, November 17. That’s the day we’re asking you to bring your one-time gift and your three year commitment to All In to go All Out. We’re praying for 100% participation - that no matter how large or how small the gift, everyone will participate.
