Guest Speaker Bethany Cook joins us this Sunday!

Guest speaker Bethany Cook returns to ValleyPoint this Sunday to continue our series, “The Story.” Bethany and her husband Steve, live in suburban Chicago, where Bethany works at Awana International. Awana is a Christian organization dedicated to helping kids and students come to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ. Bethany will be sharing the story of Ruth and how God is at work behind the scenes, even when life is at its darkest.

Don’t miss this Sunday as another clue in “The Story” is shared of how God reaches to rescue what he loves the most…people. If you are following along in The Story book, we will cover chapter nine this week.

Just For You…

+ Real Women – Saturday, November 7th:  All women are welcome to come and connect this Saturday at the Bethel Road campus from 9-11am. Guest speaker Bethany Cook will share “Oblivious to the Obvious” based on the biblical story of Ruth and Naomi. Naomi experienced more than her share of loss, yet through it all God was providing and blessing her behind the scenes. By watching Naomi’s story unfold, we learn to recognize God’s hand of blessing and provision in our lives and choose to believe his promises rather than allowing our difficulties to color our perspective. Childcare is provided.

Location: Garnet Valley Middle School (the “new gym”)
