June 23, 2019

Thank you for joining us today. Every person was a guest at one time and we know coming to a new church can be intimidating. You are our guest and we want you to feel at home!

●         Help yourself to coffee or tea from the coffee bar and feel free to bring it with you to your seat.

●         As we sing, feel free to stand, sit, sing along or simply listen.

●         Please fill out the Connection Card as you register and drop it by our Welcome Counter after the service. We would love to say hello and offer you a gift and cookies.

●         We receive an offering but do not pass offering plates at The Valley Church.  Joy Boxes are located in the back of the worship center or if you prefer to give online download The Valley App by texting "TVCAPP" to 77977 or visit thevalley.church. As our guest, please do not feel pressured - simply enjoy the service.

Parent Paging System – If your child should need you during a worship service, the security number from your guardian receipt will flash on the LED screen on the front, right wall. If you see your number, come to the Kid’s Place wing and someone will assist you. Thanks!

Parents with Small Children - We really appreciate it when you use our excellent nurseries & preschool. Changing tables are located in the men and women’s restrooms. There are spaces for nursing mothers in the West Venue restroom and East Venue prayer room as needed.

Campus News

 I Love My Church!  - NEW teaching series

What do you think of when you hear the word, “church”? Stuffy, out-of-date, judgmental, irrelevant? Well, at The Valley Church you won’t find any of that. Instead you will find a group of people who care for one another, want to impact the next generation and make a difference in the community because of what Jesus has done for them. And, that is why we LOVE our church and we think you do too! Join us for this five week series and discover what makes The Valley Church a place people love to call home, how to keep it that way and how each of us can live these values out in our lives.

The messages are:

Today – Excellence                                  June 23 – Relevant Truth  
June 30 – Come as You Are Attitude          July 7 – Young Families and Children

 Journey Through Grief – A group experience

It is often said that each journey begins with a single step. This is certainly true of a grief journey. We invite you to begin attending the “Journey through Grief” group every other Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm. The next meeting will be on June 25th. Childcare is available and each group is "self - contained" so there is no need to worry about missing one. You will find help and encouragement whenever you choose to begin. Questions? Contact Bonnie Dickey at bonniejeandickey35@gmail.com.

 

Pizza with the Pastors

Have you recently started coming to The Valley Church and want to know more about what goes on here, who we are and ways you can connect? Then plan now to join us as our guest, for Pizza with the Pastors Sunday, June 23 after the second service. You’ll get a chance to make some new friends, as well as learn more about The Valley. We won’t keep you longer than 30 - 40 minutes although you can stay longer if you like.

Please let us know if you plan to attend and how many are in your family so we’ll have plenty of pizza by calling (778-8822) or emailing (tammy.bemus@thevalley.church).
