Upcoming Events and Opportunities:
Broome County Jail Ministry Christmas Gifts:
Valley Church is collecting gifts for the Broome County Jail Ministry Christmas project (a ministry that helps men and women in mail, those released from jail, and their families). You are especially encouraged to give: new or nearly new children's books, new stuffed animals, soft covered Bibles, small paperback puzzle books, tissue packs, and playing cards. There is a box in the foyer in which you can place your donations. Please bring in items by tomorrow (December 16).
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. The KNO Live Nativity is tonight at 7:30 p.m.! The show will be followed by a reception with cookies and hot drinks upstairs.
Even if you did not sign up to help, you are encouraged to come and lend a hand wherever you see a need for help. Also, please invite neighbors, friends, and extended family to come and celebrate the coming of our God with us!
Family Adopted for Christmas Gifts:
Valley Church has "adopted" a family for Christmas this year. There are "wish list" sheets on the tables in the foyer to give you ideas of what to donate. The deacons would encourage you to bring gifts wrapped if possible. Also, please communicate with Beth Cunningham regarding what you donate and what needs still remain.
