Kids' Night Out Live Nativity
Valley Church will hold its annual Live Nativity on Saturday, December 15 at 7:30 p.m. This year, the children from Valley will join the children from the community who participate in our Kids' Night Out to act out the story of our Lord's birth. Please join us as we see the story of God's grace in the gift of Jesus unfold, and then join the children actors for hot beverages and cookies in the church building following the performance.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service ~ A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols
You are invited to join us at 7:00 p.m. on December 24 as we gather for our Christmas Eve candlelight worship service, "A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols." During the service we will behold "the development of the loving purposes of God . . . seen through the windows and words of the Bible"* in nine scripture lessons. We will respond to each lesson in reverent worship of our God who became flesh and dwelt among us as we lift our voices in his praise with joyful carols.

Intergenerational Faith Formation Classes:
Valley Church is gathering at 6:00 p.m. on Oct. 28, Nov. 11, and Dec. 9 for intergenerational faith formation classes that explore the first question and answer of the Heidelberg Catechism. The class is designed primarily for middle school through adults, but all are welcome to join us (and we're flexible with children and babies in the class). We begin each class with light refreshments and then dig into the big question together.
Teen Faith Formation:
The teens are gathering at 6:00 p.m. on the first and third Sunday of each month during the school year for faith formation classes. They are studying "Living Your Faith in a Messed Up World," which is a based on "Our World Belongs to God: a Contemporary Testimony."
