CURRENT SUNDAY MORNING
SERMON SERIES —
“ROOM FOR DOUBT”
SEPTEMBER 8th – OCTOBER 20th
9:00 (Classic Service) & 10:45 AM (Modern Service)

Valley Mills Christian Church is excited to invite you, your family and friends to a revolutionary initiative that the whole church will take part in over the next 6 weeks! Starting on Sunday, September 8th, Senior Minister Bob Beltz will be preaching on a series entitled “Room for Doubt” where we are discussing the growing need among youth and adults who have sincere questions and doubts about the Christian faith as we seek to encourage questions, address these doubts, and strengthen faith. Our youth will be learning about this in their services and our small groups will be going deeper with follow-up questions during their meeting times as well.

If you are not plugged into a small group, we are also offering an online conference Q & A on the church Facebook page to go over the small group material every Thursday morning at 10AM hosted by Joe McNeil. (facebook.com/valleymillscc)

09.08 – Is doubt always bad?
09.15 – Does God really exist?
09.22 – Isn’t the Bible full of myths and mistakes?
09.29 – 5th Sunday Serve Day! – One 10AM Service/Pitch-In Lunch/Serve Project
10.06 – Why do Christians say that Jesus is God’s son?
10.13 – Why does God allow tragedy and suffering?
10.20 – Is it intolerant to say that Jesus is the only way?

Children’s programming held during both 9:00 & 10:45 AM services (Infant-Grade 6).  Teens (Grades 7-12) meet upstairs during the 10:45 AM service and also on Sunday nights from 6-8 PM.

VALLEY MILLS CHRISTIAN CHURCH’S
VALLEY OF HOPE  |  
Addictions Support

CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS!

Valley of Hope Addictions Support is our new ministry umbrella for our growing addictions, recovery, and family support services.  These services include our faith-based 12 step program, our Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL) program, our subsidized individual and family counseling services, and our partnership with the Decatur Township Drug-Free Coalition Recovery Coach program.  Our Valley of Hope Addictions Support program is an example of needs-based evangelism and local missions right here in Decatur Township.  For questions, please contact Robin Paul through the church office or visit the website to learn more HERE!

 

 

PAL (Parents of Addicted Loved Ones)
All Family Members Welcome to Attend
Every Thursday from 7:00 – 8:30 PM

People helping people through the woods. PAL groups meet weekly to educate, support and help each other with issues arising from loving someone with an addiction. Each PAL group is facilitated by a peer, someone walking the same path. While the focus is on parents with an addicted child, all family members and friends (age 18 and older) are welcome to attend PAL meetings. These weekly meetings are open to the community.  Contact Robin Paul at 317-856-3766 or robinpaul@valleymillscc.org with questions.

 

COUNSELING SERVICES AT VALLEY MILLS! 

CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS

CLICK HERE TO REQUEST A COUNSELING APPOINTMENT

Pastoral staff are always willing to provide support and spiritual guidance at no cost, but sometimes life stressors result in the need for deeper psychotherapy with certified or licensed counselors who have specific training in understanding clinical etiology and bio-physical chemical imbalances.

Board Certified Pastoral Counselor (Dr. John Nolan) offers counseling appointments to anyone from Valley Mills Christian Church OR the community for a substantially reduced rate of $25 per one-hour session during his office hours at church on Wednesdays from 2-6 pm. To schedule an appointment, please contact Dr. Nolan at 765-676-5310. We hope that this initiative will bless our community members and families, as access to supportive emotional health services can be challenging.

Social Work Assistance:  In addition to counseling sessions, the church also employs a part-time Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Robin Paul, that may be available to assist with short-term psycho-social needs and referrals, crisis intervention, and time-limited case management assistance for navigating complex medical and benefits systems that can feel overwhelming. Social work services may be consulted by calling the church office at 317-856-3766, or by emailing robinpaul@valleymillscc.org.
