Valley's Mission Life
Angel Sharing Tree
The tree will be up starting November 18. Between the 18th and teh 25th, all the "Angel Wish" envelopes will go on the tree. Gifts are due back by December 9th. This allows for the timely distribution to the organizations and then to the families. If you know of a family that could use Valley's help this year, there's room for one more.
Interfaith Overflow Shelter
This year Valley is partnering with other Brookfield churches to staff the shelter for one week, rotating, every five weeks. If you're interested in helping out please contact Dan C.
Word has it that copies of the new Presbyterian Hymnal sampler have arrived! As you may remember, our own Edwin van Driel was a member of this committee. The new hymnal, which was joyfully approved at General Assembly this summer and will be published in 2013, has 880 hymns. The 1991 Hymnal had some 660. Rev. Adele and Max look forward to sharing some of these new and old songs with us in worship!
