Welcome to Church of the Valley
THIS SUNDAY AT CHURCH OF THE VALLEY: we continue our preparation for Easter to understand the amazing saving work of Jesus as we examine “The Trials of Jesus” from Matthew 26:57-67. In a dramatic display of His innocence, the High Court of Israel finds Jesus guilty of blasphemy even though no testimony could uphold any charge against Him. Jesus takes away our guilt through His innocence given for us.NEXT SUNDAY AT CHURCH OF THE VALLEY: join us in a celebration of our new denomination - ECO - the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians. We celebrate our ECO connection with like-minded, sister churches who share our commitment to Jesus Christ, the Bible, caring for each other and reaching out to our neighbors with Christ’s love and truth. We invited the Rev. Dr. Dana Alin, ECO’s executive director, to share with us ECO’s vision. His message will be “The Witness of One Man” from Luke 8:26-39. Come to hear how one person, transformed by Jesus, can make a huge difference in their community.MINISTRY AND SEASONAL OPPORTUNITIESECO WEEKEND AT COV - MARCH15-16!
