"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith."
~ Ephesians 3.16-17

     This Sunday and next we will spend some focused time reflecting on God's faithfulness to Valley Church for the 50 years that he has guided and sustained us as a congregation. Next Sunday we will we both remember the past with gratitude and look ahead to the future that God has for us, so that we might "run with perseverance the race marked out for us (Hebrews 12.1b). Like athletes preparing for a race, this Sunday we will come before our God, praying for the strength that only he can give, focusing, and re-dedicating ourselves to the task of being the church God has called us to be. I encourage you to read and reflect on Ephesians 3.14-21 prior to our time together tomorrow.
     We will also ordain Pat Aukema to the office of deacon tomorrow, so remember Pat in your prayers as she prepares for this office, and remember to give thanks to Adam DeVoe as he completes his term!
