Bulletin for 12/25/2022

Welcome to Church on Christmas Sunday. What an exciting day to gather as the family of God! While many of us will join family later in the day there is not a better time to be with fellow believers in Christ! On that Christmas morning over 2,000 years ago there were just two people who had been given shelter in a stable because there was no room for them in the inn. Soon that number would increase to three as Jesus was born just like the angel said He would! Prophecies were fulfilled, and the Savior of the world had arrived. Salvation had arrived for all who believe.

Join us this Wednesday, December 28th as we come together for our regularly scheduled mid-week prayer meeting at 6:00. You sure be blessed. Don’t forget next to attend next Sunday, January 1, as we begin the new year. Let’s start the New Year in church. 

An incredible gift can arrive in an unremarkable package. That's what happened at Christmas! Connect to Christ's lasting hope; lay down your to-do list and receive what Jesus did; and heal your heartache by embracing the God who's always near you, for you, and in you. Because of Bethlehem Love is born.  
HOPE IS HERE


Bulletin for 12/18/2022

Jesus wants you to know that He's going to take care of you no matter what happens. We often see the birth of Christ displayed and portrayed so beautifully in children's plays. None better than ours and we are delighted to welcome you to our Children’s play as they tell the greatest story ever told. His start in this world was beyond humble! He was not born in a royal palace but a lowly stable. His clothing was not kingly robes but were simple pieces of cloth wrapped around His tiny body. His audience was not the best doctors the world had available at the time, but Mary and Joseph and a few animals who also shared the place of birth. And His “cradle” was nothing more than a feeding trough which would go back to its intended purpose as soon as they left the stable. It is with joy we listen and watch as our Children’s department once again tell the greatest story ever told. REJOICE! It is certain! He is here as He was in the Manger, and He loves you! You are His child.

Going to church service on Christmas Sunday is not a vanishing tradition. Need proof? Join us next Sunday, December 25th, for our Christmas Worship Service. Blessings await!

Saturday - Troy Nicely, Angel Willis

Make sure to mark your calendar! Let’s start the New Year right! Let’s start in a way that would prepare us for the challenges we will face in the new year. The perfect place to be is in church as we celebrate the New Year with our brothers and sisters. Join us. New Year! Same God!


Bulletin for 12/11/2022

Welcome to Church in the Valley on this Third Sunday of Advent. The third Sunday of Advent is meant to remind us of the joy that the world experienced at the birth of Jesus, as well as the joy that the faithful have reached the midpoint of Advent. It is easy to look at our world and become discouraged by the apparent absence of God and signs of God's salvation. Advent, however, is a season of hope, in which we acknowledge that salvation is both mysteriously present, even in our world, and yet to be fulfilled.

They are here! We welcome the Rowsey family to our church. it is with Joyous anticipation we welcome Lauren, Matt, Kiptyn, Canaan Rowsey as well as our own Becky and Greg.

This is Chocolate Covered Cherry Sunday. Make sure you get your box before leaving. We are so thankful for the “sweet” family who has provided them to the entire congregation.

Happy Columbus Day! Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492. Columbus Day 2022 happens tomorrow, Monday, October 10. Even although Christopher Columbus sailed in August 1492 discovering the Americas, he and his crew were not alone. There was an unseen hand guiding and protecting Him. The very same hand that is guiding us today. Praise God for his amazing grace!

When a Believer gets in trouble, God doesn’t send someone else to check on His son or daughter. He does it Himself! Think of Daniel in the lion’s den or the three Hebrew boys in the fiery furnace. The Lord was the fourth Man in the fire. He closed the mouths of the lions. He will do the very same for you!

Welcome to Church in the Valley. It is our prayer that you feel the love and power of our Lord and Savior and the love of this congregation. We are celebrating homecoming. World Communion Sunday is actually a homecoming. A celebration that reminds all who have accepted Christ as Savior are part of the body of Christ. It is a welcome back home as we remember our Lord’s life, death, and resurrection. Jesus took bread and said, “Take, eat, this is my body,” and then he took a cup, and gave it to them. Jesus is preparing us for homecoming, and every time we celebrate communion together, we are celebrating homecoming. On World Communion Sunday, we celebrate with our siblings in Christ around the world, in all our diverse cultures and customs surrounding this meal of remembrance. No matter where we’ve wandered, no matter how lonely we think we are, God is calling us to come home. For those who have tried to find their own way, Wisdom calls out to us, and has set the table, ready for us to come home. Every time we share this meal together, we are reminded that we are home. That journey to becoming a person of faith, to believing in Christ, may have begun long ago, but our alumni status still stands: We are always being called home, and we are always welcome.

Today is Pocket Change Sunday. All loose change placed in the collection tray will benefit the Deacon’s Benevolence Fund.

Welcome to Church in the Valley! There is joy in this house today! Psalm 94:19 says “ In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.” In other words When the cares of our hearts are many, God’s consolation cheer our soul.

YOU ARE LOVED! YOU ARE BLESSED! Welcome to Church in the Valley. It is our prayer that you will feel the presence of God as we worship today. ‬ For many centuries the men and women in Europe looked out upon the Atlantic Ocean, and saw the sun sparkling upon the glittering surface of the waters and they wondered. They wondered if there was anything beyond. Scholars said that you could sail off the edge of the world—there was nothing out there at all. In fact, inscribed on some of the coat of arms of the nation of Spain was its national motto, Ne Plus Ultra, meaning, “There is nothing beyond.” Columbus sailed on the shiny waters. He sailed off into the sunset as people waited expectantly, and finally after a long time the sails reappeared and the crowds were exultant. They shouted with joy and Columbus announced that there was a land beyond the sea that was rich beyond their dreams. It was a glorious paradise. The king of Spain changed the motto of that land until it reads as it does today, Plus Ultra, meaning, “There is more beyond.” For many centuries innumerable people stood beside the dark hole that we call a grave and watched the remains of their loved ones lowered into the earth, and they wondered: Beyond the dark waters of death, is there anything beyond? Jesus went beyond the dark waters and setting sun. He died upon the cross. People waited expectantly. On that Resurrection morning, as the sun arose in the east, the Son of God stepped forth from a grave and declared, “There is something beyond. There is a paradise beyond your greatest expectations. And there awaits a heavenly Father, waiting with outstretched arms to wipe away every tear from your cheek.” —D. James Kennedy, “

Benjamin Franklin has been credited with this quote: Nothing is certain except death and taxes.” He was a very intelligent man however here are a few things that are even more certain:  
We have the faithful mercy of the Lord (Psalm 103:11).
We have been known for a long time by the Lord (Ephesians 1:4).
We are the recipients of amazing grace (Ephesians 2:8-9).
We have the Rock that is higher than we (Psalm 61:2).
We have the quietness because of our Shepherd Who is awesome!

It is with joy we welcome you to church on this Fourth of July Sunday. It is a day that we celebrate the ratification of the Declaration of Independence. Among other things the Declaration of Independence says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident that we've been endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” America was built on the foundation of biblical teaching. Many of our founding fathers and signers of the Declaration of Independence were followers of Christ themselves. The founding fathers began the Declaration by stating that people are endowed by their Creator. As we celebrate freedom, let us remember that we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave that was given to us as a gift from God. May God always bless America. Have a blessed and a happy Fourth of July.

“DAVID-THE GIANT SLAYER” began today at 10:00 in the sanctuary. Did you miss it? Don’t miss the rest of the story. Next Sunday.

When Possessions become a Prison
 Jay E. Adams writes that under the roof in his back yard hangs a hummingbird feeder that he keeps filled with sugar water. There are four openings in it from which birds may suck the nectar. Yet, day after day, from early morning until after dusk, the feeder is the source of their own private version of Star Wars. One bird chases all the others away.“ Adams writes, “there is room for four birds at a time, and fully that number attempt to feed. But the top dog (excuse my use of this metaphor for a hummingbird!), who now ‘owns' the feeder, will not let them. All day long he sits on the branch of a nearby apricot tree guarding ‘his' feeder and defying others to transgress on what he has established as ‘his' territory“ This ongoing slice of life confronts us throughout the day as green and red hummers streak across the yard, the king hummer in hot pursuit of an intruder. While the chase is on, others sneak a sip or two, only to be driven off when he returns. “The whole business has become a sort of parable for our family. Here is an example of grace: I bought the feeder; I supply the sugar water. The birds do not earn it; they receive it all FREE. Yet, day after day, they fight over who may enjoy it. “How like the people of God! All we have or are that is worthwhile is the gift of God's pure grace. And yet we can be proud, self-centered, envious, and quarrelsome. Often, we fight over God's good gifts rather than expressing our gratitude in humility and sharing what we have been given with others. Just as I am confronted daily with rivalry in my yard, even so God is confronted daily with rivalry in His.”

Bulletin for 6/19/2022

Welcome to worship at Church in the Valley. It is our prayer that you will be blessed and feel the presence of God. It is wonderful to worship the Lord in freedom and without fear of persecution as some endure in other countries. On this Memorial Day we remember those who have paid the ultimate price to secure the freedoms we enjoy today and those who sacrificed serving in the armed forces. Also remembered are our loved ones who have gone on before us. We praise God for the hope that someday there will be a great reunion day! We have the hope of a better place!

Bulletin for 5/22/2022

What terrifies you? Finances? Political unrest in the world? Today Jesus invites you to look at Him and see how much He loves you. Today He calls you to join in His mission. Would you like to experience the full extent of His love? Will you surrender your fears to Jesus? He invites you to receive Him, to get to know Him, and experience a relationship of a lifetime. You will experience the overwhelming joy of hearing him say, “Peace be with you,” and “I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20). You’ll find you can’t do it on your own. But Christ’s Spirit is there to help you. Ask, and he will answer. We are weak and fearful. We cannot find our way to Him on our own. Respond to His call and to follow Him by His Spirit & strength.

Bulletin for 5/15/2022

Why did Jesus need to be fully God and fully human? The answer is that only a Savior who was both fully God and fully human could heal the breach opened by our rebellion in our sin against God.The how of the virgin birth remains a mystery. Through the ages some people have rejected it as impossible. Human logic will never solve the puzzle of how the Son of God became fully human. Yet the deeply satisfying truth of this story remains: Jesus, fully God and fully human, solved the problem of our separation from God. Praise be to God!

Welcome to worship at Church in the Valley. It is our prayer that you will feel the Holy Spirit as never before. Over 2,000 years ago, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a borrowed donkey. People believed that they would finally break free from the oppressive Roman rule. They waved palm branches and proclaimed praises to Him, yet those same people would be shouting a far different message just a few short days later. He suffered and died for them and for you and me. Everything was about to change. An empty tomb made all the difference.

Welcome to Church in the Valley! In John Chapter 4 we read the wonderful story of Jesus meeting the Samaritan woman at the well and welcoming her into the fold. Jesus took time to answer her questions and then received her as a new believer in Him as the Messiah. As they were standing beside the well Jesus said these words to her: (John 4:13) “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” That same water is available to all. The woman followed Christ physically and then spiritually. Like the woman at the well go tell everyone you meet of a loving blessed Savior.

We often experience crisis, trouble, and trials. it can be easy to get tired and want to give up. That’s why on this Super Bowl Sunday we look ahead with faith rather than fear, and trust that God wants to help us not only defend against the crises we go through, but to take the opportunities to conquer them by His grace. Offense consists of powerful Christian friendships, getting involved with church, church attendance, and more.. God is the best coach ever and it is a privilege to be on God’s team.

We are so glad you have chosen to join us today as we worship in the House of God! We encourage you to think about the incredible majesty of God as the creator of everything. He is the giver of life and the reason we have breath in our lungs to live another day. In the Old Testament of Scripture, we are told the story of Nehemiah, who was given a mission by God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and dedicate the City to God and His people. After the walls had been rebuilt and many of God’s people living in exile returned to the city, they joined together to worship God. In Nehemiah 9, verse 6 they said: “You alone are the Lord. You made the Heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of Heaven worship you.” God used Nehemiah to work a miracle for the Israelite's, and they responded by worshiping the Lord because they were so Grateful. They acknowledged that this task could not have been completed if God All- Powerful was not on their side. Remember the same God who worked this miracle is the same God we worship today. He hasn’t changed. He still keeps His promises.

Bulletin for 1/02/2022

Jesus refers to Himself as the Alpha and Omega in Revelation 22:13—“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” Remember that regardless of what we will face in the upcoming year, Jesus Christ will be there in the beginning AND will be there at the end! Not only will he be at the beginning and end of the year, but He was also at the beginning of Creation and will also be there when time is complete. All we are facing now may not be understood in totality by any of us, but if we know the “Alpha” and “Omega,” we can rest assured He will be exalted! God is good all the time, and we can trust Him! We appreciate your faithful prayers and support for the ministries at Church in the Valley as we forge ahead in faith this year! Pray for our Nation and the entire World to experience a tremendous Revival! Pray that our thirst and hunger for the things of God will only intensify as the days, weeks, and months of this New Year come and go. May God richly bless you this year. CIV loves and appreciates your faithfulness and dedication. Welcome to Church in the Valley.

Welcome! The fourth Sunday Advent’s theme is LOVE The whole meaning of Christmas can be explained in one little four-letter word…LOVE. God sent His gift of pure love to us that first Christmas. Love descended from heaven to be born of a virgin. Love lay in the scratchy hay of a manger in a meager barn in Bethlehem. All of God’s love was robed in the delicate skin of a baby and wrapped in swaddling clothes. This final week of Advent helps us to reflect on the magnitude of love that was made manifest in Jesus.

Welcome! Today marks the second Sunday Advent. One of the prayers of the early Church which is linked with the season of waiting and longing, was the Aramaic word 'MARANATHA', which means 'Come Lord'. Use this prayer often this week as one way to begin preparation for Christmas. God shows his mercy through the face of Jesus. We need to be the face of Jesus in the world today. During this Advent season we are waiting "for all the individuals and nations on earth to grow into the kind of relationship with each other that will encourage mutual help instead of competition and conflict. Then the Kingdom of God will be established!".

Welcome! Today marks the first Sunday Advent. The word “Advent” simply means “arrival.” It is the manifestation of something long-awaited. It is a time that we reflect on Israel’s promised savior and remember his birth, as well as anticipate his return. It is a time of joyous remembrance and eager anticipation. It is a time of devotion and waiting, of repentance and faith in the promised messiah of Israel. Let us hold fast to God’s promise and look forward to His arrival. As we prepare our hearts for the Christmas celebration and meditate on the miracle that occurred that night at Bethlehem, join us as we celebrate the promised word-made-flesh and remain steadfast in his proclamation this Advent season. An Advent booklet is available at the usher’s desk.

Good morning, Church! We are so happy to have you with us today. We are honoring our Pastors and their families today. Let them know how much we appreciate all they do at the Church and in our community. They serve with the heart of Christ and set the example for all of us as he knelt and washed the feet of the Disciples. We thank them for their servant spirit, their love and support. Make sure you let them know how much they are loved. The Bible says in 1 Timothy 5:17 (NKJV) 17 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. These past couple of years have been challenging for us all, yet for those in leadership, it has been no “picnic” either! Let’s hold them up in prayer. We are thankful for God-directed and God-anointed leadership!

World Communion Sunday is actually a homecoming. A celebration that reminds all who have accepted Christ as Savior are part of the body of Christ. It is a welcome back home as we remember our Lord’s life, death, and resurrection. Jesus took bread and said, “Take, eat, this is my body,” and then he took a cup, and gave it to them. Jesus is preparing us for homecoming, and every time we celebrate communion together, we are celebrating homecoming. On World Communion Sunday, we celebrate with our siblings in Christ around the world, in all our diverse cultures and customs surrounding this meal of remembrance. No matter where we’ve wandered, no matter how lonely we think we are, God is calling us to come home. For those who have tried to find their own way, Wisdom calls out to us, and has set the table, ready for us to come home. Every time we share this meal together, we are reminded that we are home. That journey to becoming a person of faith, to believing in Christ, may have begun long ago, but our alumni status still stands: We are always being called home, and we are always welcome.

CHURCH IN THE VALLEY—A CHURCH WITH HEART!
It was a great Home Coming service. If I would have spoken this is what I would tell the church. The Church has a special place in our hearts. This started with Jim Franklin who knew everyone’s name. When Ashley was in elementary school she had a bunny that was sick. Jim prayed for sniffles at the pulpit and after that every time Ashley would see him she would throw her arms around Jim and give him a big hug. Stan was a good Bible teacher and helped my Mom and I thru family ordeals. My family went to his cabin one time when the kids were smaller. We had a great family time and made more good memories. Then come’s you: Troy who put a smile- (priceless) on my mother’s face when she was home bound by your family and the kids who came to her house and sang Christmas Songs to her. That meant so so much to us all. Each one of you, in your own way, has had a special touch and always been much appreciated. Then comes the wonderful people. Some have passed but will never be forgotten. Larry and Judy Floyd comes to mind for all the times my parent’s were in the hospital and Larry would come and wait with me and pray. He came in a wheelchair which was not an easy task. Special special! The Awana program (Lou & Marilyn Morrison) were over for children gave my children a start in life with good lessons. To Tonya and Ann Ray who sent my mother cards and now me. Sometimes calling! Jeff Black always calling and keeping me informed tell us the church loves us…. He has a caring heart… Then come’s Tom and Ann Johnson. I would say she was my Mother’s best friend. The true friend that spend endless hour’s with her…. Cooking goodies and visiting. The person who has helped each of the people I just mentioned who I give credit to is Laura Bias. The glue that helps us all. I have called on her many times from cleaning carpet to putting a person on the prayer list…. Precious People! The word that comes to mind is heart… church in the valley cares about people which is rare these days. Thank You, Love you all, I pray many more good years to come….
