Valley Church had a long tradition of displaying beautiful, volunteer-created banners in the sanctuary and outside on the church building.  There are several different sets of banners which are rotated based on the liturgical calendar.

Valley's Advent banners represent the quiet time of anticipation leading up to the birth of Jesus. Blue is the color of the night time sky. A star represents the Star of Bethlehem, which led the Magi to the Christ child. The circular ring reminds us of everlasting life.

Our Advent banners were created when a former Interim Minister, Rev. Judy Kim, ordered stoles for Advent and then asked our banner makers to match the Sanctuary vestments to the stoles. When no exact match for the blue fabric was found, Sharon Pleimling, our head designer, created a design that uses small pieces of many odd blues to achieve the right look.

We think the results were amazing. How about you?

 

Smith Family

After attending a wedding at Valley and getting to know Pastor Richard and his wife - Jean Ann, we decided to visit on Sunday a few weeks later as we were searching for a new church home. Feeling like kids on the first day of school, we apprehensively shuffled out of the sanctuary following the service and were immediately approached by warm smiling faces. We agreed to partake in the beloved coffee and donut hour where we met more people than we could count. In that moment, we were home!

Everyone at Valley is part of a family. We take care of each others kids, host birthday parties for one another and generally “do life” together. Our community, however, doesn’t just include those of us who sit next to one another on Sundays. There is no shortage of opportunities to make an impact outside the Valley walls.

One more thing worth highlighting is that Valley loves our little worshipers. They are beloved members within the community; they have their own special play space IN the sanctuary, partake in a children’s sermon during Sunday service and have an abundance of programming to learn, grow and just be kids. This place is truly special; I do not know what we would do without Valley.
