Small Groups are the perfect way to get connected at Valley Mills.  By joining a small group, you can learn more about the Kingdom of God, participate in a fun activity, or find a fun group of people to study God’s Word with.

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.)

Find a listing of current Bible Study Groups HERE!

If you have an interest in joining any of these groups, have an interest in leading a group or have questions about existing groups, contact Joe McNeil, Spiritual Growth Coordinator, at joemcneil@valleymillscc.org or at 317-856-3766.

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 6:30- 8:00 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 PAL Facilitator Megan Short at 317-749-8272 with questions OR email info@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 $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 robinpaul@valleymillscc.org.

The Valley Mills Christian Church Food Pantry continues to offer drive-through (only) food pantry services on Fridays from 9AM – Noon.  In order to protect our ministry volunteers, we ask that recipients maintain social distancing of at least six feet by driving up to our entrance, checking in at the church door, opening their trunk, and then returning to the interior of their vehicle while our volunteers load the bags for them.  Additionally, as we anticipate higher than normal need for basic necessities to help our community, we encourage continued donations of non-perishable food items and basic household items.

Food Pantry donations can be dropped off at the church on Sunday mornings or Fridays between 9AM and Noon, by arranging a drop-off appointment through the church office at 317-856-3766 or email info@valleymillscc.org.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  HEARING ASSISTANCE DEVICES ARE AVAILABLE AT THE SOUND BOOTH IN THE WORSHIP CENTER EACH SUNDAY FOR THOSE IN NEED.
