Home Improvement (9:00)

Aimed at improving our homes by transforming our lives through faith in Christ. We hope to grow in love for one another through fellowship and teaching in an informal environment. Various topics or books of the Bible are studied. Our class enjoys lively table discussion and does not avoid controversial issues. Visits from Valley global partners occur regularly. Members of our group are of all ages and stages in their lives. Each class is designed to be modular and useful, so regular attendance is not necessary, but encouraged because a thematic thread builds with every lesson.

Current study: Gospel of Luke (began October 2017)

This class is for married, engaged, and dating couples of all ages and stages of life—this group is for those who are thriving, struggling, or just starting out.  Our goal is to help each couple employ the Great Commandment—that is, ‘to love God and love their spouse, who is their nearest neighbor.’  For more information, please open the Total Marriage Brochure here or contact, totalmarriage@valleychurch.org.
