Upcoming Events and Opportunities:
Thanksgiving Basket Reverse Offering:
Remember to bring items for the Thanksgiving baskets by tomorrow morning.
Safe Church Training:
There will be a Safe Church abuse prevention training on Sunday, December 2 after the service (approx. 11:30). If you are involved with caring for, teaching, or transporting the children and youth of Valley Church, you are strongly encouraged to attend. All other folks are welcome as well! Valley's abuse prevention policies and procedures will be reviewed, and you will have an opportunity to affirm your commitment to keeping our church a safe place for children and families. Please contact Leslie Vermaat or Pastor Kurt to let them know you are coming. Thank you!
KNO Live Nativity:
This year, for a twist on our annual tradition, we will be combining Kids' Night Out and the Live Nativity. The children who come for KNO will have the opportunity to tell the story of Jesus' birth to their parents and friends in the Live Nativity. We will have the KNO Live Nativity on Saturday, December 15. The kids will arrive at 5:00 and they will perform one Live Nativity show at 7:30 p.m. The show will be followed by a reception with cookies and hot drinks upstairs.
This is a new adventure that presents new opportunities and new challenges. There will be far more kids in the nativity than in previous years. This means we need help getting them fed, into costumes, in the right places at the right times, etc. There are sign-up sheets in the foyer that indicate ways you can help out. Please look at those sheets and consider a way you can help make this first ever KNO Live Nativity a success.
Also, please invite neighbors, friends, and extended family to come and celebrate the coming of our God with us!
