Faith over fear! Watch Joe's response to the coronavirus and read the details for this weekend here: https://vvcc.org/blog/2020/3/12/worship-over-worry-valley-views-response-to-covid-19

Love is Powerful
This is why we Love Dallas... because Love can bring people to Jesus.

The power of Jesus at Christmas
We might think that we are "above" certain people or certain actions... but King Jesus came to earth, "loved low" and served the least of these. If He is able to love anyone, certainly we can too.

Worship Over Worry
"God does not promise the absence of struggle, but he does promise an abundance of strength!" Joe's first sermon after completing cancer treatment was powerful! Don't miss what God has to give you in the middle of your struggle.

Fall 2019 Rooted Posterboard Testimonies
Rooted is an 11-week discipleship experience designed to connect you to God, to the church, and to your purpose! Register online at vvcc.org/rooted

Job: Man's Response to Suffering
Chad's message yesterday was a powerful reminder that the reality of Jesus' resurrection can bring hope to us every single day. Even when we're suffering, we have a reason to worship... that reason is Jesus.

New Life at Valley View
We are so excited New Life to begin meeting this August. These groups will walk through 40 weeks of intentional discipleship, using 12 steps to grow, find healing, and LIVE FREE. If you're interested in joining the first groups in our New Life ministry, you can read more about the 12 steps at vvcc.org/newlife, and come to the church on Tuesday, August 20, at 6:45pm for the first meeting.

VBS 2019: Shipwrecked
We had an incredible time last week during VBS! Thankful for everything Jesus did in our church family, the kids who attended, and the volunteers who gave so much time to serve. Jesus rescues!

This Father's Day, do what you know your Heavenly Father wants for you: love one another.

Sword of the Spirit
Jesus is our example in using Scripture to thwart the attacks of the enemy!

Helmet of Salvation
Salvation is not the finish line. Salvation is the initiation that secures for us a place in the battlefield. Baptism isn't the end goal... there is more for us to do after we rise from those waters.

Shield of Faith
This is important: the shield of faith was not meant for one person to operate alone. Each person carrying a shield was meant to be standing next to another, and another, and another... each shield able to overlap with the others, creating an impenetrable barrier to attacks from the enemy. We are not meant to live isolated in our faith! We are meant to hold each other up through faith, safe in a community that fights for each other, protects each other, prays for each other in faith. Who has your back in faith?

Shoes of Peace
This is a life-changing realization: being equipped with peace can allow you to stand your ground anywhere, under any circumstances. The peace that comes from the Gospel can give you the traction you need to stay stable in the midst of a disaster, and to move forward against the work of the enemy, and to help others get back on their feet when it seems impossible for anyone to stand.

Breastplate of Righteousness
The next piece of the Armor of God is the Breastplate of Righteousness! Joel gives some historical and theological context for understanding how this helps us in our spiritual walk.

Belt of Truth
The Apostle Paul wrote instructions about spiritual armor we can "put on" to equip us for spiritual warfare. Christians will experience trouble from the forces of darkness, but there is equipment that will give us what we need to stand firm, and stand together. It starts here: The Belt of Truth.

Vacation Bible School 2019
You are invited to join us for VBS this Summer! The theme is Shipwrecked, and kids will learn all about how Jesus rescues them.

Brian's Story
"Before my baptism on August 19th, I consider myself to be another person... a dead person. But now... it's been a good year. And I look forward to many more to come." Content warning: suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

"If you can worry, you can pray." Please join us in prayer as our Senior Minister Joe Weece navigates a Lymphoma diagnosis. We are praying for his healing, and thanking God for all the good He is already doing.

God's Work In You
God brought Elijah to a place of isolation and preparation in order to build him into the person who would Lead Others back to God. Remember, God doesn't waste anything... He will do something IN you in order to do something THROUGH you. Catch the rest of the sermon video on our website at vvcc.org/video.
