Children’s Christmas Program- Dec. 14

 We want ALL kids (ages 0-18!) to be involved in the Children’s Program this year!  We are envisioning a program where kids/youth can share their talents (individually or in groups).  Kids/Youth are invited to sing a Christmas song, play an instrument, read a scripture or prayer, put together a drama/skit, share a special family tradition or memory, etc. We are open to other creative ideas! We will plan to have only a couple practices together as a large group, kids/youth will be asked to practice on their own prior to meeting as a group closer to the Christmas Program.

Let us know how you would like to be a part of program! Sign-ups are in the narthex.

We would LOVE to have you be a part of Pleasant Valley’s Christmas Program on Dec. 14!!! Please see Amy Ruebke or Beth Gimbert if you have questions.

September 4th, 2014 | Posted by webmanager in Uncategorized - (Comments Off)

Are You a Fan or a Follower?

foot prints

Do you know what it really means to be a follower of Christ? Do you know if you are a fan or a follower and what does that mean anyway? Come join a group this fall and participate in the small group study “Not a Fan” to consider these questions along with others.

This six week, video-driven small group Bible study is centered around the calling of every Christian to truly follow Jesus Christ and provides an opportunity to deepen your relationship with Jesus. The study each week lasts about 90 minutes and includes a 25-35 minute video which tells the unfolding dramatic story of a couple as they face some difficult life situations followed by group discussion and prayer.

Group sign up sheets will be available in the narthex starting September 7th and the groups will begin meeting the week of October 6th. This is one Bible study you don’t want to miss out on!

If you have questions or would be willing to host a group or lead a group please contact one of the Discipleship Team members (Beth Gimbert, Ben Garber, or Teri Sumey).
