Counseling, Social Work, & Addictions Services

Our “WHY”

It is the desire of Valley Mills Christian Church to make a positive impact on our local community and help people cope with brokenness and rough patches that they face in their lives.  Jesus walked among the people, meeting them where they were and helping them along the way.   We hope to use the gifts God has given us to help others find hope where they currently feel despair.  We want to walk alongside others as they face difficult times, and help them find solutions and healing to bring them to a place in their lives where they can experience the joy that is available to every one of us!   ( James 1:  2-3  Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.)
