We are excited to once again work with Compassion International. Their sponsorship program helps lift families and communities out of poverty, and they do it all in the name of Jesus.
Ready to sponsor a child? You can get started right now!

How to Share Your Faith in the 21st Century

By Events
Sunday, January 23 from 11 am - Noon
Valley Community Center

We all want to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our world. But some of us aren’t sure where to start, or how we should make connections in the first place with people who are explorers, skeptics, or doubters… or just unfamiliar with Christianity and the church.

Check out our great one-hour workshop where we explore how we can share our faith in the shifting cultural climate. Participants will walk away with strategies and next steps rooted in community, accountability and ongoing love and support. We hope to see you there!

No advance registration is required.

Location: Valley Community Center

Did you know? 20 families from either Burundi, Rwanda, Bhutan, or Myanmar farm the land behind the Valley Community Center. They are the heart of Global Greens.
