Foster the City, a Big Birthday, and Inspiration from Jen

Hey Family,

I met with Elena J. and Dave C. last week to talk about Valley’s new partnership with Foster the City. God stirred Elena’s heart to drive this for us at Valley. She’s our Advocate. FTC is about equipping churches to provide loving homes for children in foster care and to create supportive teams around these families. We can ALL be involved in this ministry. Mark your calendar for an interest lunch meeting on Sun., March 24. In the meantime, please talk to Elena and check out their website:

Last Sunday I caught sight of David T. and Peter G. scooping ice cream for Barbara Mack’s birthday celebration in her class, Life Applications. She turned 93 on Saturday, Jan. 27!

I’m so happy to see Peter up and rolling again!

OK, here’s fresh news: Jen Jiang taught in Women’s Bible Study yesterday morning. Check out what’s on the slide behind her.

This Sunday we’ll be back in our “Extraordinary Hope” series from Hebrews 11. We’ll be talking about “Rahab.” We hope you can come with a “heart singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah!” and get hope from the God who transformed a hopeless woman into a mighty hero of faith.

For Jesus the Lord,
