➢  Welcome to The Valley Church! We love guests!

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 and follow God’s leading in your life.

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, please come to the Valley Kids building 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.

New Women’s Bible Study – Begins October 24  

Shame is everywhere we look.  It hides in the shadows, lies to us, and shackles us in the prison of our past.  It hides in the plain sight and holds us back in ways we do not realize.  But the truth is that God is not only more powerful than anything we've ever done but also stronger than anything ever done to us.  We can grow in freedom and strength!  Join other women for this five-session video Bible study and shed the shame in your life as you discover God’s truth. You will see that you are not fundamentally flawed and that you are worthy of acceptance.  You have been set free. Books - $7.00

Choose from:   Thursdays a.m. 9:00-11:00 - 10/24 through 11/21

                        Mondays p.m. 6:30 - 8:00 - 10/28 through 11/25

Sign up today at thevalley.church by clicking the Connect tab and then choosing Women’s Bible Study or contact Donna Householder at either 937-216-5127 or at donna_householder@yahoo.com.
