“GROW” LAUNCH CELEBRATION AND CHURCH PICNIC!
THIS SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH
ONE SERVICE AT 10:45 AM 
FOLLOWED BY A PITCH-IN LUNCH OUTSIDE AT THE FAMILY PAVILION!

LET’S CELEBRATE!  This Sunday, September 26th, we’ll launch our 3-Year “GROW” Campaign and hold our Annual Church Picnic, too!  Bring a lawn chair and the family and join us at our ONE 10:45 AM SERVICE (indoors) followed by a “pitch-in” lunch and fellowship with one another outside at the Family Pavilion! Bring a sweater— it will be sunny, but may be chilly! (Will hold inside in Family Life Center if weather changes!)

The church will supply the drinks and main dish (special thanks to Troy Jones and his team!)  So that we’ll have a good variety of dishes, we ask each family to please “pitch-in” and bring the following according to your last name letter: (You can drop off your dishes in the Family Life Center prior to church service.)

Last name begins with A-H: Bring a side dish
Last name begins with I-R: Bring a dessert
Last name begins with S-Z: Bring a cold salad dish

NOTE: Kids Birth thru Grade 6 will meet in their normal classes in the Kid Zone area during the 10:45AM service this Sunday!

This is going to be a day to remember as we accept the challenge to grow deep (discipleship), grow out (evangelism), and grow young (next generation).  In addition, a friend of Bob’s, Coach Gene Carter from the Dallas, Texas area will be our special guest this Sunday and will share in the morning service. 

We hope to see you all this Sunday!

UPDATED GUIDELINES FOR FACE COVERINGS AT VMCC:

Effective Tuesday, June 8, 2021, the face mask mandate was lifted for Marion County.  Valley Mills Christian Church will no longer require face coverings for indoor gatherings, facility usage and worship services, however, if you personally feel the need to continue wearing a face covering (or have not been vaccinated) you are welcome to do so.  

As always, if you are ill or have any symptoms at all, we encourage you to please stay home and worship with us through our online services on our church Facebook page and YouTube channel.

 

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 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.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS ASSESSMENTS

As a part of the body of Christ, God gives us each special gifts and calls us to use them for service.

This assessment will help you to know YOUR gifts and understand how you can use them. How exciting to be able to discover how God has uniquely designed YOU!

If you are not able to take online, a limited number of paper copies are available at the Welcome Center Table in the church foyer. Please be sure to return your results to the church after taking the assessment.

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.
