Join us this week
Our Season of Creation continues as we read further into the story of Moses at the burning bush, alongside another great prophetic voice. Our scriptures are Exodus 3.1-9 and Luke 16.1-8a. Pastor Lee’s message is “Season of Creation: The Cry of God’s People”—a fitting focus for World Communion Sunday, when we come to the Lord’s table with our siblings everywhere. If you’re joining by livestream, do have some bread and juice at hand so that you can join in.

Sunday, September 25, 2022–“Season of Creation: Holy Ground“
Our Season of Creation continued in the wake of the Curiosity we tapped last week. We have been invited to listen for the voice of creation by learning more about a created species that is important to each of us, and learning of any hurts or changes being experienced by that part of creation today. We carried that learning as we accompanied Moses’ in his encounter at the burning bush. We read Exodus 3.4-6, where Moses begins to hear God’s voice. We join Moses in removing our shoes—especially when we consider how sacred all our ground is to God, as the prophets remind us. Pastor Lee’s message is titled “Season of Creation: Holy Ground.” Follow along with our Order of Worship.
Join us in person
We’d love to welcome you in person. We have ample parking and you can enter from the east doors (under the carport) with no steps or from the lower doors on the north side, and walk up the steps to the sanctuary.
An informal time of fellowship with coffee and occasional treats happens after worship, in the Fellowship Hall right next to the sanctuary. It’s a great chance to connect with a new friend!
What to expect
We worship in a semi-traditional style, with an organ alongside piano most weeks and sometimes a guitar, handbells, and other instruments. We sing from the hymnal and also incorporate newer songs and melodies, seeking to express and connect with the worship theme, the moment we’re in, and the people with us in person and by Livestream.
During most seasons, we’ll follow a theme for four to six weeks, usually based on the lectionary or a book or theme of the Bible.
We offer Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month, and occasionally at other times. All are welcome at the Lord’s Table who are seeking to grow in faith. We understand Holy Communion as a means of grace by which we may be brought closer to our Lord Jesus Christ.. You do not have to be a member of Valley or even baptized. You are welcome.
For several weeks since the start of 2022, we offered a worshipful gathering on Thursday evenings at 7:00 that’s intended to offer some space to breathe. This program is on hold right now but will likely return later in the year. We’d include some music, a bit of Scripture, time to consider some simple questions, a little prayer, and sometimes a ritual to connect us with our faith roots or our own spirit. Check back for future opportunities.
