Have you ever wondered “what’s next?” for your life? Whether you are new to the faith, seeking answers, or you were raised in church, you have likely had questions about the Christian faith. Come and learn what it means to be a disciple that makes disciples.
Spiritual Growth Leadership Institute (SGLI) is a 42-week journey that takes place over 7 six-week modules.  Choose from one of three sessions: Sunday at 9:00am, Wednesday at 6pm, and Thursday at 11am. Classes last approximately one hour and are completely free. Childcare provided on Sunday sessions only. 

This collegiate level course goes in depth on Spiritual Disciplines, how to study the Bible, answers to theological questions, and practical applications for serving and sharing the gospel.

3-YEAR “GROW” INITIATIVE!
Check out the GROW DEEP Table in the Foyer this Sunday and watch for many opportunities to GROW OUT, GROW DEEP and GROW YOUNG in the coming months!

Our three-year GROW initiative will influence our direction in areas such as our ministry programs, small groups, Sunday services, missions, etc.  GROW will be all inclusive of everything we do here at VMCC, and will serve as our pillars for all leadership direction and decision-making.   

We want YOU to know what GROW represents:

1) Growing OUT  reaching into our community. 
2) Growing DEEP – deepening our knowledge of God’s Word and letting it transform us as we grow together in God’s image. 
3) Growing YOUNG – learning how to connect with our next generations and understanding how they think and what they need to grow in their faith. 

We look forward to having every member and attender of Valley Mills Christian Church take up this journey with us! 

 

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, Connections Minister, at joemcneil@valleymillscc.org or at 317-856-3766.

 

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 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!

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.  Recipients can drive up to our entrance, check in at the church door, open their trunk, and then return 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.
