Valley Church Camping Retreat:
You are invited to join us for a camping retreat from the evening of Friday, August 17 through the morning of Sunday, August 19 at Chenango Valley State Park. You can either camp or participate during the day and sleep in the comfort of your own home. Please mark your calendars and let Pastor Kurt know if you will be attending to camp or for daytime-only participation by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org or by filling out the sheet in the foyer. If you are camping, please reserve your camping spot. If you are tent camping, we would encourage you to reserve a spot in Chipmunk Bluff. There are still tent sites in the north section of Chipmunk Bluff 60-88 that would be ideal. If you are RV camping and need electricity, please select an appropriate site nearby in the Chipmunk Bluff area. See here to make reservations.
Hospitality (and good food!) for Ends of the Earth New York Cycling Tour:
A few months ago we heard from Nick and Christal Haner about their work with Ends of the Earth Cycling. Their New York tour will be coming through the Binghamton area on August 11 and 12. The riders, who are raising money to support youth ministries in Ukraine and Georgia (the country, not the state), will be staying at Central Baptist Church. Valley's leadership team has been in contact with the Haners, asking how we might be able to help support the tour. We would like to encourage you, Valley's congregation, to help us provide dessert for the riders and support crew on the evening of Saturday, August 11 (at Central Baptist Church). More information and details will be available next week.
Summer Fellowship Refreshments:
Please sign up to help provide refreshments for the time of fellowship following the service of worship during the summer. There are opportunities to come alongside other volunteers on several Sundays in August! The sign-up sheet is in the foyer.
If you are interested in ushering on Sunday mornings, please talk to Pastor Kurt.
