"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
~ Isaiah 43:19

The New Is Bursting Out!

     This Sunday we will be led in worship by various members of the pastor search team and elders, and pastor emeritus Al Gelder will be preaching a sermon called "The New Is Bursting Out!" on Isaiah 43:14-21! In addition to all of this, I will be ordained as a Minister of the Word in the Christian Reformed Church. I encourage you to read Isaiah 43:14-21 in preparation for our time together on Sunday morning.

     There will be no adult Sunday School this Sunday. It will resume next Sunday with a study in Matthew.

Barth and Janine Updates

barth and janine     As many of you know, Valley Church supports the mission work of Barth and Janine Chapman among the people of Taiwan. They have recently shared some very encouraging news about small growths in the acceptance of the good news about Jesus in Taiwan. I wanted you all to be aware of their blog, which gives updates of their lives and work. You can follow them at We are hopeful that Barth and Janine will be able to visit us later this summer and share what God has been doing for and through them in person!
