New 8-Week Sermon Series Begins sept. 13th
9:00 & 10:45 AM
join us in-person at the church building OR join us LIVE on Facebook at Facebook.com/Valleymillscc or on the Valley Mills YouTube channel at 9:00 & 10:45AM
Starting on Sunday, September 13th (9:00 & 10:45AM), we will begin an important 8-week series related to why we exist as a church, and as followers of Jesus. It’s not enough to know our Vision, Mission, and Values, but we must also embrace them and live them out every day. For the Christian, it’s not even optional, as the Lord Himself gives us a command to “Go into all the world,” and to “Love our neighbor as ourself.”
Join us each Sunday in-person or online at 9:00 & 10:45AM during this 8-week sermon series and come ready to dive in to some exciting truths!

There are 3 types of small groups:
1) Life Groups meet in homes and focus on relationships and growing deeper in Christ together; 2) Bible Studies are informative groups that dive into God’s Word; and 3) Special Interest Groups are gatherings of people getting together to engage in various activities (crafting group, board game group, etc.)

Saturday Morning Prayer Meeting
Every Saturday at 10:00 AM
Feeling anxious or frustrated about events in your life and the world at large can be overwhelming. Phillipians 4:6 says “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
At Valley Mills we believe in the power of prayer. JOIN US!! Every Saturday morning we will hold a Prayer Meeting at 10AM in the Worship Center. Whether your prayer life is strong, or it needs some work, we will meet and strengthen ourselves together while praying for the needs of ourselves, our church, our community, and our world. We look forward to seeing you this Saturday!

VALLEY MILLS CHRISTIAN CHURCH’S
VALLEY OF HOPE | Addictions Support
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 (18 & over)
Every Thursday from 7:00 – 8:30 PM
(Currently meeting via Zoom – contact Robin Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to join!)
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 email@example.com
COUNSELING SERVICES AT VALLEY MILLS!
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 $30 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 (at a rate of $30 per one-hour session) may be consulted by calling the church office at 317-856-3766, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEW TIME – THURSDAYS @ 6:30 PM
Meets Upstairs in Conference Room
Valley Mills Christian Church offers a 12-Step Addictions Ministry for all types of addictions. You do not need to attend Valley Mills to participate in this program. Simply show up to a meeting and get connected. Our 12-Step program meets on the 2nd Floor of Valley Mills Christian Church on Thursdays at 6:30 PM.
Our program is faith-based, and we believe that God is our main strength for recovery and change. Please contact Ministry Leader, Don DeHart at 317-919-3654 for more information.
