LIFE VERSE 2022, a tradition unique to ValleyPoint, is here! We have the opportunity to join together and start the year focused on finding words from God that challenge, encourage, and sustain.
Shari Kelly teaches from Matthew 20:1-15 with a focus on God’s grace.
During our time on this final Sunday of 2021, we will sing, pray, open God’s Word, and partake in communion together. Let’s end the year with a focus on God’s love!
There is nothing quite as beneficial as a lighted path. A luminous walkway provides direction, certainty, and confidence with each step. Without a measure of light, a trail can become dangerous, even frightening. The birth of Jesus initiated a lighted path back home to God the Father. His entrance into the world did more than surprise and delight. Jesus’ birth changed everything and brought hope into a dark world. You are invited to Join ValleyPoint Church as we celebrate throughout December while considering “The Lighted Path (back home).” Allow the sounds of the season, warm greetings with friends, and encouraging conversations from God’s Word help you come back home and make this Christmas bright.
Dr. David Lamb from Missio Seminary in Philadelphia and the author of God Behaving Badly (a book that gives coherence to our understanding of God in both the Old and New Testaments) will help us think through the question, is God loving or angry? This question is timely and a great way to end November and step into celebrating the arrival of Christ’s birth.
In addition to Buddy Thigpen from Russia, who was with us on November 14th, you will be introduced to four additional partners. Each organization has extraordinary and passionate leaders doing fantastic work! Each organization loves people. Our generosity is going to unite our hearts and share Christ’s love in our communities and around the world.
Our missionary to Smolensk, Russia, Buddy Thigpen, joins us. Buddy always encourages us with how God is uniquely working through ValleyPoint Church to help people discover God’s love in other places around the world.
The short stories (parables) Jesus told were powerful, and teaching this way was a central feature of how he expressed spiritual truths. Jesus used stories to confront prejudices, bring conviction, and expose real “heart” issues. We are in for a treat as we learn together.
Happy 50th, ValleyPoint. You look amazing! We are going to have a memorable weekend celebrating, praying, remembering, laughing, and giving thanks.
